The Meetings Show has unveiled further plans for the 2020 hybrid show, after the UK government confirmed that business events, conferences, exhibitions and events centres are permitted to re-open on 1 October. It will run a comprehensive, interactive virtual element alongside the live event.
The live event at Olympia London on Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 October, will bring together pre-qualified buyers with exhibitors for valuable face-to-face meetings. Meanwhile, pre-qualified buyers unable to physically attend the show will be given the chance to attend one-to-one video meetings through a virtual platform on October 19, 20 and 21. Educational content, curated especially for virtual consumption, will also be accessible throughout the three days of the virtual show.
The seamless, hybrid format is designed to enhance the experience for all attendees while making it easier than ever to book one-to-one meetings with hundreds of event suppliers, access hours of inspirational educational content and connect and interact with peers in new ways.
