FAQs - what companies ask before they book

What makes Business Travel Show Europe different from other trade events?

So many things, but if we had to pick our top ones, they would be:
  • Presented by the BTN Group, who have been part of the industry for over 39 years and are a team that truly understands the industry.
  • The show itself has been running for 30 years, and it’s lasted so long because we know what we’re doing
  • The only event with a fully qualified buyer audience. Every buyer who registers is checked and vetted by our team.
  • Our hosted buyer programme – the first in the industry - brings travel buyers from the UK and Europe to the event, offering complimentary accommodation and a host of networking to maximise buyers’ time and enjoyment.

Can I see a floorplan?

The floorplan will be available closer to the event. Contact the sales team for any further information.

Who else has booked a stand 2024?

New exhibitors sign up every day, and the online exhibitor list will be live in April 2024. We have international exhibitors that cover all areas of corporate travel. From travel management companies to airlines, hotels, ground transportation, booking tools, corporate cards, and more. 

However, you can see a list of who has signed up to exhibit in 2024 so far above on this page.

What stand packages are available?

We have a solution for every budget and KPI. If you want to make a big splash, then a space-only stand if your best option; if you’re looking for something lower-key to hold a couple of meetings, then the meeting pods of the hub could be the right place for you to start.

When can I start contacting buyers?

Around four weeks out from the show. Once you’ve booked, we’ll send you an email a couple of days ahead, so you know the exact time and date you can log in. Then you’ll receive an email from the diary platform with a link to log in. From then, you’ll be able to message hosted buyers and visitor buyers, manage your diary and more.
