Future of meetings



If you organise meetings, events, conferences and incentives and you're based in the UK or Europe then you should consider applying for our hosted buyer programme. When considering applications, we look at the following criteria:

  • Number of meetings, events, conferences, or incentives organised per year globally
  • Annual budgets for incentives, conferences, events or meetings
  • Level of purchasing or decision making authority
  • The location of the events organised
  • Applicants from the same organisation will be approved if they can demonstrate they look after different areas or accounts and will be looking at meeting different suppliers

If you have any questions about the programme and whether you apply, please get in touch with the hosted buyer team or click below to register your interest and a member of the team will be in touch.
