“The Meetings Show exceeded our expectations. We went along thinking that we’d meet a few new faces, but actually we met a lot of new people and have made 70-80 leads. We are very happy. We are looking forward to coming back next year.”
“It’s been amazing and great to catch up with clients, colleagues and friends. It’s been especially nice to be ‘out out’. We relaunched our brand at the show and have had amazing feedback. We’re really pleased.”

“It’s been fantastic to exhibit at The Meetings Show 2021 and be here with the team at NewcastleGateshead. We are trying to build back the industry and are doing that by showing face at conferences and events like this. I felt genuine excitement in the run-up to the show – I had butterflies in my stomach. It’s been such a good experience and I’ve had a smile on my face the entire time.”
“It’s been great to get back together face-to-face and meet clients we haven’t seen for a long time. People are really engaged and have a lot of business their clients are looking to place so the volume of enquiries has been great. It’s been good to reconnect with old clients and meet new ones to tell them about our growing collection of properties, which now includes the Parkgate Hotel in Cardiff.”

“The Meetings Show was the industry kickstart we were all hoping for. Everyone I spoke to was delighted to see so many attendees and to make those all-important human connections. The end result was the successful delivery of a meaningful event. HBAA was excited to see members and talk to potential applicants, and hearing people discussing bookings for meetings and events underlined that our industry is truly open for business. Well done The Meetings Show!”
“The Meetings Show 2021, was back with a bang! It was great to be able to get back to what we love doing the most; networking face to face with existing customers, meeting new buyers and saying hello to industry colleagues. We were delighted with the amount of new contacts made and the value of enquiries generated on the stand. The Meetings Show gave us an excellent platform to launch our Meetings for Change sustainability product, and we felt the support from a marketing, PR and content point of view gave was a big contribution to its success."
