How it works
THE RIGHT PEOPLE
The Meetings Space is simply dedicated to uniting the most influential buyers with the most inspirational suppliers in the European MICE industry. It is all about meeting and networking with the right people - the influential companies that you want to do more business with plus new companies and contacts that you will be ecstatic you discovered!
DIAMONDS AND HIDDEN GEMS
The Meetings Space buyers and suppliers will include the diamonds and hidden gems of the industry. Our team includes MICE country specialists who are based in the key European markets. These experts are daily immersed in serving buyers and suppliers across the European meetings industry. They get their thrills out of knowing who is who on the buyers’ side and also what is hottest on the suppliers’ side. They will ensure that the forum reflects some of the most important developments in people and places which occur throughout the year - and that the delegates you will meet with are influential and inspirational.
THE PROGRAMME ACTION
The Meetings Space will take place 28 February – 2 March 2013.
The programme will take place over 3 days and 2 nights and is formatted to offer delegates the maximum benefits within the optimum time frame. Delegates arrive Thursday for an early evening start. Departure is after lunch on Saturday afternoon.
It will be an extremely productive balance of meetings, networking, and ideas exchange session, consolidation and fun - a true reflection of our industry. The emphasis will be on adding benefit throughout the programme – with surprises along the way.
And where better to be than in the fascinating city of Berlin, at the heart of Europe, in the spectacular Grand Hyatt Berlin. This beautiful 342 room hotel will be the home for all our delegates and is located at Potsdamer Platz close to the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag. It is innovative in design and home to exclusive contemporary art - and features a large pool and spa overlooking the rooftops of Berlin. If offers inspiring and relaxing luxury in which to build relationships and do business.
