New group coordinators at The Meetings Show 2016 include leading companies such as Steinberger Hotels, ExCel London and Park Plaza. They join more than 40 returning coordinators including HelmsBriscoe, Dubai Business Events, London & Partners, Lime Venue Portfolio and Inntel as well as ACC Liverpool, ABPCO, Hilton Hotels & Resorts and Shocklogic, who are focused on recruiting association buyers.
“Group coordinators are the backbone of our hosted buyer programme. They understand the market, have strong relationships with the leading buyers and add significant credibility to our offering,” comments Steve Knight, Event Director, The Meetings Show. “Our coordinators are already busy identifying their best buyers allowing us to host an even larger number of attendees from the UK as both fully and semi-hosted attendees.”
Mags Shaw, Director at Mags Worldwide, said: “The Meetings Show is an ideal place to gather our buyer contacts, network with them, conduct business and learn, particularly with those from the UK. The flexibility of the different attendance options, including the semi-hosted opportunity allows us to meet the needs of buyers whether they be local to London, travelling down from Scotland or joining us from overseas.”
Group coordinators work alongside The Meetings Show’s hosted buyer team to bring key clients to the event. They include a mixture of exhibitors, representation companies, agencies and well known industry figures who use the programme to spend dedicated face-to-face time with those individuals that join their hosted buyer group. Hosted buyers and their coordinators benefit from complimentary travel and accommodation, exclusive access to hosted buyer lounges and attendance at networking events.
