In addition to using our own database to recruit hosted buyers, The Meetings Show also provides industry partners and exhibitors with the opportunity to become group coordinators. By becoming a group coordinator, you are eligible to invite your own clients as part of the programme and in doing so, The Meetings Show will provide your clients with complimentary travel and accommodation amongst other benefits listed below.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
There are a whole host of benefits to becoming a group coordinator, not least the opportunity to invite selected buyers to join you at the show whilst being hosted by us.
Find out more about other benefits including money off of your stand for 2019, exclusive marketing and PR opportunities and dedicated telemarketers encouraging buyers to visit your stand at the show by downloading the group coordinator benefits flyer below.
GROUP COORDINATOR CASE STUDIES
There's no better way to fully understand the benefits of bringing a group of buyers to the show than by hearing directly from a selection of the people who already do it!
Check out our group coordinator case studies to understand more about the benefits available to you, their top tips on how to recruit successfully and the type of events they hold for their group.
WHAT'S INVOLVED IN RECRUITING?
Invite your existing or prospective clients to come and meet you at the show with the added benefit of attending within the hosted buyer programme. As with all hosted buyers, they must meet our qualification criteria and once accepted will be assigned to your group.
Many group coordinators choose to incorporate invitations into their regular sales activity with their clients via email or telephone and it is found that adopting a personal approach works best.
As a coordinator you will be assigned an experienced account manager from our hosted buyer team who can help you find the best approach for you.
