How it works - Programme


The Meetings Space is simply dedicated to uniting the most influential buyers with the most inspirational suppliers in the 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!


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 will take place over 3 days and 3 nights and is formatted to offer delegates the maximum benefits within the optimum time frame. Delegates arrive Thursday for an evening start. Departures are on Sunday.

Hosted buyers will be offered the option to stay an extra day for a hosted destination discovery incentive. 

It will be an extremely productive balance of meetings, networking, consolidation and fun - a true reflection of our industry. The emphasis will be on adding benefit throughout the programme – with surprises along the way.
