UK's Meetings Show Expands Sales Team to Attract Technology Sector




Due to an increase in demand, The Meetings Show has expanded its sales team with the appointment of Abigail Fletcher

Fletcher took up her role at the beginning of January to bring new exhibitors, particularly from the technology sector, to the show. Her role capitalizes on the fact that many exhibitors are committing due to The Meetings Show’s focus on the delivery of UK buyers as well as the success of the 2014 show, which saw a 67 percent increase in hosted buyers.   

Before joining The Meetings Show, Fletcher was a key account co-ordinator at Reed Exhibitions, where she worked across 23 separate travel shows as part of a team managing 13 major clients including leading hotel chains and destinations.

"I am looking forward to using the knowledge I have gained working on similar shows to develop The Meetings Show’s exhibitor offering and ensure it remains the UK’s premiere show for the meetings industry,” Fletcher said in a statement.

“2015 is set to be the biggest show to date," Gordon Kirk, commercial director at The Meetings Show, added. "We have already seen significant growth across both the domestic and international sides of the show and we expect this to continue with the addition of Abigail to the team.  She brings the perfect balance of industry experience and energy and we look forward to the impact she will have over the coming months as we bring together the UK’s most comprehensive list of meetings industry focused exhibitors.”

The Meetings Show, organized by Centaur Exhibitions, will take place July 7-9 at Olympia, London
