Ashfield Meetings & Events, Grass Roots, CWT Meetings and Events, Capita Travel & Events and Zibrant have already signed up to attend the event, which will take place on 12 May in central London.

The event will offer a mix of education and speed-dating style meetings.

The day also features the MPI Young Achievers Award, sponsored by the Switzerland Convention Bureau.

The winning team will be selected on the evening by a panel of judges with the winners awarded a trip to Switzerland.
