Attend on your terms

Our flexible attendance options (see below) as well as the exclusive diary to plan your time allows you to attend on your terms and make the most of your time out of the office.
  • As a Buyer based in Scotland, I find the hosted buyer programme an excellent opportunity to network with peers from across Europe, and to meet with suppliers, all under one roof. I learn something new every time I attend.
  • It is THE place to meet current and new suppliers and buyers from all over the world, who you may not meet otherwise. The hosted buyer programme is invaluable even for buyers who have visited the show for years as there is a lot of additional support and networking above and beyond going around the showroom that bring that added value.
  • Most of key suppliers under one roof. Interesting learning sessions. Possibility to re-connect with like-minded professionals and share good practices.
  • The perfect platform to meet and learn - two days well invested
  • Europe's leading business travel trade show. Very well organised and great opportunity to update your knowledge on the industry, to meet suppliers and to extend your professional network.
  • It's the highlight of my calendar every year and I look forward to catching up with all my suppliers in one location over the 2 days. It's also great to check out the new technologies and suppliers and there's always a spark of innovation which I can take back to the office!

Networking events

Pre-Show Conference Dinner

Following the pre-show conference, join your fellow hosted buyers for a relaxed evening of networking drinks and dinner at a location close to ExCeL. Mix with old friends and new acquaintances as you wind down after a busy day of travelling and learning and before a busy two days of the exhibition and appointments! There will be a table plan for dinner, so there is no need to worry about how you will make friends as you kick-start your hosted buyer experience and get to know your peers.

Day 1 Dinner

After a full first day at the exhibition, join your hosted buyer peers once again for an exclusive evening of drinks, food and networking. Re-connect as you share your learnings, ideas and plans for when you return to the office. Everything is taken care of for you, from transfers, seating plans and dietary requirements, so please do join us as your peers thoroughly enjoy these evenings and are a friendly bunch!
