Diamonds and hidden gems

Suppliers will meet seriously qualified buyers who have significant MICE business to place across Europe outside of their own country. The buyers we deliver will of course include the big name agencies and global brand corporates. But we will also bring you new potential - hidden gems from mid-range and fast growing agencies as well as from niche sector corporates. All are guaranteed to have significant pieces of business to place.

  • Turn unknown contacts into potential accounts
