The event will take place alongside the Event Production Show at Olympia, London, which will be the host venue for a second year running since moving from London Excel in 2012 after its acquisition by Mash Media from UBM.

In September, organisers announced that they will introduce an 'opt-in' hosted buyer programme that will enable buyers to choose who they would like to meet at the trade show and appointments will be matched based on both the exhibitor and buyer preferences.

The show will connect event organisers with a range of destinations, venues and support service suppliers.
