The Meetings Show 2014, which took place at Olympia London from 8-10 July, attracted 3,154 unique visitors, according to early unaudited data released by organisers. ABC audited figures will follow in due course.
The show also reported 2,433 trade visitors, 10,000 pre-scheduled appointments and a 62% rise in hosted buyer numbers to 731, slightly missing its target of 750. Including exhibitors, 4,626 meetings industry professionals attended the show.
The exhibition was also 20% bigger than 2013.
Steve Knight, The Meetings Show's event director, said: "The Meetings Show is the place for the industry to meet. Comments from exhibitors and visitors alike clearly confirm that the event is a success and the UK's leading place for meetings professionals to gather."
