The show – being held on 9-11 July at Olympia – is hoping to attract up to 1,500 hosted buyers and has 30 group co-ordinators on board.
The Meetings Show UK event director Steve Knight said: "Flexibility is the key for us. If buyers want to come down to the show from Scotland, elsewhere in the UK or mainland Europe, we make it easy.
"Our one-to-one appointment system provides hosted buyers with the perfect reason to attend. They choose for themselves who to meet and all appointments are pre-scheduled so no time is wasted."
Hosted buyer applications will be reviewed by a team of qualifiers, who review details including the number and size of meetings organised, annual budgets, purchasing authority, seniority and future business opportunities.
Organisations committed to bringing buyers to The Meetings Show UK include:
· Hotel chains and venues including Guoman Thistle, H10 Hotels, Marriott Hotels, Puma Hotels, EC&O Venues
· Destinations, DMCs and their UK representatives including London & Partners, Destinations Unlimited, Mags Worldwide, Om DMC, Moulden Marketing
