The Meetings Show opened its doors at Olympia London today (8 July), with organisers Centaur Exhibitions claiming 731 hosted buyers had registered for this year’s event.
The number is 62 per cent up on the 2013 figure.
Organisers report 460 exhibitors and a 20 per cent increase in floor space.
“This is a fantastic achievement,” said Steve Knight, The Meetings Show’s Event Director. “I am extremely proud of the fact that we are facilitating more than 10,000 separate pre-scheduled appointments this year, bringing individuals and organisations together to develop relationships, grow business and create success.”
The 2014 show programme commenced on Monday 7 July with The Association Meetings Conference at The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London followed by the hosted buyer welcome reception at The Science Museum.
The Meetings Show runs to 10 July.
