MEET South West Event Partners – making great events happen

It’s amazing how just a handful of businesses and people can really make such a difference and at MEET South West this is no different.

Now in our second year we are proud to have great partner relationships and we are delighted to have partnered with Great Western Railway (GWR), Bristol Airport and the regional destination marketing offices. For 2020 we are also welcoming Glisser as a delivery partner after their CEO, Mike Piddock, spoke at our inaugural show in January 2019.

At the heart of MEET South West is a desire to get event professionals together and our two travel partners, GWR and Bristol Airport do just that!

Connecting people throughout the South West, GWR work hard to ensure conference (and festival goers) get to their destination on time and in comfort! And did you know you can save £££’s using their special GWR conference rates, with amazing discounts for outbound journeys from London. So make the most of the special rates, join us in the South West and discover the fantastic range of businesses for your next event.

If travelling from further afield, the corporate travel team at Bristol Airport work to ensure that travel in and out of Bristol Airport is smooth, easy and fast. The South West is a fantastic destination for in-bound events from elsewhere in the UK and Europe, with an infrastructure capable of supporting world-class events.

Bringing the MICE community together across the region, we are working closely with our partners at Meet Bristol, Visit Bath and VisitWiltshire, including the Event Organisers Network. This collaboration enables the widest possible reach to keep event planners informed and support then in delivering world-class events.

What about engaging our audience when they are at the show? How do we know if all the planning to deliver MEET South West (or any other event) is really hitting the spot?

To help provide some answers, we are delighted to announce our partnership with Glisser, international leaders in event tech. Their audience engagement software provides deep insights into the unseen interactions at events, helping organisers evaluate what worked and what didn’t. As well as presenting a session on the future trends in event tech, all speakers at MEET South West will have the opportunity to use Glisser’s technology as part of their presentations. By harnessing technology we’ll ensure sessions are engaging, content rich and audience-relevant.

Feeling inspired, want to learn more, share your knowledge and expertise, and of course do business? Make sure you register for MEET South West 2020, Friday 31st January 2020, at the Mercure Bristol Grand.
