Following a UK government decision in July that allowed business events, conferences, exhibitions and events centres to re-open on October 1st, if adhering to social distancing, The Meetings Show will be held as a hybrid event. The leading platform for the world’s meetings and events community has been rescheduled to October 19-20, due to the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and will run a comprehensive, interactive virtual element alongside the live event to keep business meetings and events professionals from all around the world connected and informed.

The live event at Olympia London will bring together pre-qualified buyers with exhibitors for face-to-face meetings. A blend of live and virtual education sessions will also run throughout the event, providing insight to the meetings and events community. 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 Meetings Show Event Director Jack Marczewski, said: “We welcome the government’s decision to provisionally announce a re-opening date of the meetings and events sector from 1 October. This is great news for the industry and we are looking forward to putting further plans into place for this year’s hybrid edition of The Meetings Show.”
