The Meetings Show UK is holding a one day conference, addressing the issues and challenges the market faces when creating events for their associations.

The content for the Association Conference will be decided by The Meetings Show UK’s Education Panel, led by Sally Greenhill, managing director, The Right Solution.

"Associations are experiencing enormous changes in competition for members and pressure on revenues which emphasises the need for their events to be as effective and innovative as possible. The Meetings Show UK is providing a platform for both UK and international associations to discuss all the latest issues and trends, to learn from experts and their peers, at a special day totally geared to their needs," she said.

Meetings Show UK, event director, Steve Knight said: "We aim to provide the highest level of education programme to all our attendees, including the vitally important association market."

QEIICC commercial director, Sue Etherington added: "The Meetings Show UK’s decision to use The QEIICC to commence its education programme is a testament to its desire to run an event that delivers high quality from start to finish. The association market is important to The QEIICC and to the UK as a whole, so holding a dedicated conference for this sector is a significant accomplishment for the show."

The Meetings Show UK's inaugural event will take place during week commencing 8 July, 2013 at Olympia, London. The 5,000 visitors to the show will include 1,500 hosted buyers from across the UK and Europe.
