Grand Hyatt, Berlin 28 February-2 March 2013

From The Management Team

Lorraine Hall "We don’t need to reinvent the wheel – but we do plan to produce an absolutely exceptional event! 

Personally I have spent the last 8 years launching and developing meeting forums in Europe and I do realize that I may have an obsession!  But I also have a vision. I am delighted to be developing The Meetings Space with such committed partners and a European team of highly experienced and enthusiastic people.

My co-directors were also pioneers in creating European meetings and incentive forums. Their knowledge comes from specializing in the meetings industry supply chain for twenty years with their two multiple award winning companies - a very busy agency and a highly respected DMC. Headquartered in London their teams work daily with leading MICE buyers and suppliers across Europe.

We fully understand what delegates want and we believe that you can never have too many good people with you. Our fantastic team of country experts are immersed in serving MICE buyers and suppliers in their own regions all year round. They get excited about knowing who is who on the buyers’ side and what is moving and inspiring on the suppliers’ side.

Our aims are crystal clear:

  • to inspire senior buyers 
  • to provide new business opportunities for suppliers
  • to provide the best possible ROI on time and budgets
  • to give you an unforgettable experience

We love what we do and we are passionate about exceeding expectations. We really look forward to contributing to the great MICE marketing mix."
