WHY EXHIBIT WITH US?

THE UK’S LEADING EXHIBITION FOR THE MEETINGS, EVENTS, CONFERENCE AND INCENTIVES INDUSTRY

Every year we welcome thousands of UK and international event organisers, including corporate meetings and association planners, event agencies, and more. 

ALL of our buyers are pre-qualified, to ensure you're meeting with only the highest quality attendees, and the show delivers the largest hosted buyer programme of any industry event in the UK.

Whatever your goals, our team will work with you to create a bespoke package that suits you.

Here are just a few reasons why you should exhibit at The Meetings Show:

                    

GENERATE LEADS AND SIGNIFICANT ROI FOR YOUR COMPANY

Enjoy 1:1 meetings with our hosted buyers, all of whom are senior UK/European decision-makers responsible for organising meetings and events.

Our event platform is a buyer-led meetings system, so you can be confident that you're speaking to hosted buyers who are interested in your company and want to meet with you.

In 2023, each exhibitor had an average of 17 pre-booked meetings and had the opportunity to meet with nearly 2,000 qualified buyers in attendance.

 

 
                    

GAIN EXPOSURE TO THOUSANDS OF BUYERS FROM ACROSS THE UK AND WORLDWIDE

Our PR team at Custard will support you in maximising your promotional opportunities before and during the show, helping you to create a buzz about your presence and any innovations, new products, developments, packages, or offerings you'll be sharing with buyers. 

Rather than emailing or calling all of your prospects, show them what your organisation can do in-person. Deliver presentations, talks, and any onsite activations at your stand, so buyers can see for themselves what sets you apart from the rest.

                    
                    

GENERATE PUBLICITY AND PR                         

Reach the meetings and events industry easily, through our multi-media platforms.

As an exhibitor, you'll have the opportunity to share your press releases on our website, appear in our editorial features, monthly newsletters, and in the show previews - distributed to key industry media publications. Our team will also work with you to promote your appearance at the show across our social media accounts (+25,000 combined followers), and emails (+30,000 buyers).

Take advantage of our marketing assets and PR toolkit too, to ensure you're reaching as many people as possible.

                    
                    
                    

ONE-TO-ONE SUPPORT WITH OUR TEAM OF INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS

Benefit from dedicated one-to-one support from your Account Manager, and our Sales & Operations Executive, Johan Skogqvist, who will be on hand to answer any questions you have about your stand, your exhibitor listing, how to use the event platform...and anything else you can think of!

Plus, you can always reach out to our Marketing and PR teams for help with promoting your appearance before and during the show.
