Meetings Show Kicks Off in London; Announces Venue Change

As hosted buyers, exhibitors and visitors gathered for The Meetings Show at London's Olympia this morning, organizers announced new dates and a larger location to meet growth for the 2016 show.

The Meetings Show will move to Olympia Grand from June 14-16, 2016.  The move aims to unify the show in a single, more cohesive environment, and became necessary following an almost 30 percent increase in floor space since the Show’s debut in 2013.

The Association Meetings Conference, which has seen a 49 percent growth since 2014, will move in line with the new dates to June 13, 2016.

“This week’s show is bigger than 2014 in so many ways and we look forward to welcoming meetings professionals from around the globe over the course of the next three days,” The Meetings Show’s Event Director, Steve Knight, said in a statement.  “We have more than 600 exhibitors, a 20 percent increase in hosted buyers and more than 12,000 preschedule appointments.  The industry has voted with its feet – the hosted buyer model is clearly wanted by both the supply and demand side of the industry and the changes for 2016 will ensure the needs of the industry are met.  As one of London’s most iconic venues, Olympia Grand is the perfect location for the show – it offers more space and plenty of room to grow as we continue to increase our industry presence.”

Visitors can still register to attend the 2015 show taking place until Thursday, July 9 via www.themeetingsshow.com or onsite at Olympia London.  Highlights include corporate, healthcare, PA, meetings design and technology education streams as well as extensive networking and new business opportunities.

Organized by Centaur Live (a division of Centaur Media Plc), The Meetings Show is the premier event for the UK inbound and outbound meetings industry, taking place 7-9 July 2015 and 14-16 June, 2016 at Olympia, London.
