Paul Martins, Director of Sales, Cavendish Venues

The mia provides a great platform for venue and agent engagement. In particular, the 'agents in the spotlight' session enables us all to share and understand mutual challenges.

Karen Guile, Director, tobook Ltd

I really like the ethos of the mia — bringing together venues and bookers at a senior level in a 'relaxed' business event. It gives us all the chance to debate the hot issues.

Wendy Ashton-Evans, Director, Pineapple Events

We have been a member of the mia for a few years now. Our membership has definitely brought us some added value and enabled us to raise our profile. People know and trust the mia and in return they book with us.

Paul Grey – CEO of Friends House (London) Hospitality Ltd

When looking for training for my event sales team the mia is always the first place I look – being the leading industry association why would I go anywhere else? The feedback from my team is always positive, they love the personal approach of the training.
