Principals Events

The mia hosts a series of events throughout the year that are specifically designed to offer new opportunities for business leaders who we have identified to be ‘Principals’. The Principals events provides a platform for General Managers, Directors and Principals of organisations operating within the sector to network at the very highest levels.

Principals Business Lunch

The Principals Business Lunches are hugely successful for a variety of reasons. The lunch is very intimate as the mia ensures that everyone can be seated on one table- usually a maximum of 20 guests. This presents each individual with the opportunity to express their thoughts and network with the entire group. Additionally, they are successful because the Principals have the opportunity to hear from, and dine with an exclusive guest speaker. The guest speakers have great industry knowledge and experience; this facilitates discussion amongst the whole group and thus makes the event highly beneficial for those who attend.

Principals Agent Hosted Dinners

The Principals Agent Hosted Dinners offers guests the opportunity to dine with a selection of the UK’s top booking Agents.  The purpose of this event is to not only provide exclusive networking opportunities, but to help the guests understand more about the industry and have a greater insight into what they need as an organisation in order to help the Agents deliver for their clients.

The structure of the Principals Agent Hosted Dinners has been designed to ensure that every guest has the chance to socialise with the Agents throughout the evening. Each dining table is hosted by an Agent; however, between each course the Agents are rotated to another table giving each guest time to network with a new Agent.
