Review of The Meetings Show 2013
At the beginning of July Right Venues attended The Meetings Show UK as a hosted buyer; an event which promised to deliver the largest hosted buyer contingent in the UK.
On the agenda was an association conference, educational sessions, peer-to-peer networking, a UK Economic Impact Study and evening networking.
Exhibitors applauded the high quality of buyers at the event, and overall we believe the day was a success, especially considering that it was first of its kind.
A number of big hotel groups did not sign up, and the attendance was not as high as it could have been (for example, a predicted 1,500 hosted buyers were hoped to attend while just over 500 actually did), however for the first show this was a respectable number and it presented many opportunities for Right Venues for the future.
We are very much looking forward to the next UK Meetings show, and we believe that due to the success of the first show, the 2014 one will be even bigger and more popular.
