Whether you’re looking to scope out a new venue for an awards ceremony; seeking an accessible location for a conference for 1,000 delegates or wanting to check out the latest locations for team building activities, you’ll find it at The Meetings Show. Having everything under one roof means you’ll be able to work smarter rather than harder and make the most of your time out of the office.

Many venues will be unveiling news at the show: Center Parcs will be highlighting the £7m refurbishments of its conference spaces The Venue at Woburn Forest and The Venue at Sherwood Forest, while The Johnstown Estate in County Meath, Ireland will be talking about its new Forde Suites. Developed with an investment of €6 million, the multipurpose conference facility can now host up to 1,000 delegates.

Improve your industry knowledge

Between those supplier meetings, learn new ways to take your events to the next level, by attending one of the 35 sessions included in this year’s inspiring education programme.

Split across four key themes – Impact & Inform and Innovate & Inspire – it features a stellar line up of expert speakers covering topics including AI, data, security, event marketing trends, experiential design, contract negotiation and sustainability.

If you’re unsure how new security standards impact you and your events, head to the Inform stage on Wednesday 19 at 11am for The New Level of Event Security Standards, And How to Live Up To Them with Martin KI’fver of Trippus Event Solutions.

Fancy getting a little more hands on and learning more about AI? Visit the Blank Canvas – for the Great AI Hackathon with Claus Raasted at 11.30am.

Day two’s sessions start at 10am with a look at building community around your events with Megan Garmers and Daniel Doyle of Streamline Social, a session on Turning Conflict into Connection with Jo Berry (a speaker and expert in conflict transformation) and corporate wellness with Sarah Hunt of Conference Wellness.

On the subject of wellness, The Meetings Show has again teamed up with wellbeing not-for-profit EventWell who will run a Wellbeing Hub, including the Quiet Room – a calm space offering sanctuary from the busy show floor – and Wellbeing Bar hosting breathing and yoga sessions.

If you feel like clearing your head while stretching your legs before day two kicks off, sign up to the Go! Running Tours on Thursday 20 June. Meet at the entrance of ExCeL London at 7am to partake in a 3km brisk walk or 5km run. Sign up in advance here.  

Register to attend

There are a number of ways to register to attend The Meetings Show 2024, which is co-located with Business Travel Show Europe and TravelTech Show. UK or European decision-makers responsible for organising a large number of meetings and events, can also apply to be a hosted buyer.

Hosted buyer applications are checked against a set of criteria. If accepted onto the programme, hosted buyers get a range of benefits, from access to a dedicated appointments diary, exclusive networking events and fam trips, to complimentary travel and accommodation (for those outside London).

To maintain The Meetings Show’s renowned reputation for attracting quality buyers, all applications for complimentary attendance are fully vetted. Other meetings industry professionals are welcome to attend by purchasing a non-buyer visitor ticket.

  • 16/05/24 Strata appoints Endellion King as head of incentives

    Strata, the award-winning brand experience agency, has appointed Endellion King as Head of Incentives, tasked with further developing and growing the organisation’s in-house incentive offering.

    King’s appointment is the result of significant client growth and a continued demand for a creative and bespoke reward and recognition and incentive offering.

    King has over 15 years experience in the live events industry and joins Strata from Top Banana, part of the TBA Group, where he was Director of Reward and Recognition. His previous experience has seen him enjoy various event and operational roles at Crown, before Crown became part of Strata, and AddingValue.

    Simon Hambley, CEO of Strata, said of King’s appointment: “I have worked alongside Endellion in a previous role, so I’m thrilled he’s joining us. With the launch of Sherbet and the increasing demand from clients for bigger, better and more creative incentive events, there is no better person to head up our incentive team than Endellion. He lives and breathes incentives and is incredibly passionate about his work. He is an exciting addition to our team, someone who will champion the value of incentives and the capabilities within Strata to our clients.”

    King said: “Strata has entered an incredibly interesting and exciting period of growth and so I am thrilled to be joining at this time.

    “The incentives industry is changing constantly, and clients are seeking fresh and innovative ways to incentivise their teams all the time.

    “In my new role, I’m looking forward to collaborating with the wider Strata team, to progress their forward-thinking approaches to live events, incentives, rewards and recognition and to enhance their already impressive offering. With the recent launch of Sherbet, and its exponential growth, the timing couldn't be more perfect.”

    King will take over the role previously held by Mike Parrott, who will be moving over to become Managing Director of Sherbet, a brand new rewards and recognition platform, which sits within the Strata Group.

    With the launch of Sherbet, and the acquisition of Endellion, Strata’s ability to offer clients added value is further strengthened through their offering of end-to-end support with client’s rewards and recognition delivery.
