UK’s leading platform for the world’s meetings and events community
The Meetings Show, the UK’s leading platform for the world’s meetings and events community, has welcomed the news that business meetings, conferences and events can resume in October as it unveils further plans for the 2020 hybrid show.
Last week, the UK government confirmed that business events, conferences, exhibitions and events centres are permitted to re-open on 1 October, if adhering to social distancing.
The Meetings Show 2020, which has been rescheduled to October due to the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, will run a comprehensive, interactive virtual element alongside the live event to keep business meetings and events professionals connected and informed, wherever they are in the world.
The live event at Olympia London on Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 October, will bring together pre-qualified buyers with exhibitors for valuable face-to-face meetings. A blend of live and virtual education sessions will also run throughout the event, providing insight and inspiration to the meetings and events community.
Pre-qualified buyers unable to physically attend the show will be given the chance to attend one-to-one video meetings through a virtual platform on October 19, 20 and 21. Educational content, curated especially for virtual consumption, will also be accessible throughout the three days of the virtual show. Supporting The Meetings Show’s objective of bringing the world’s meetings and events community together, the virtual element will be integrated with the live show, with anyone attending the event in-person also encouraged to access the virtual platform.
