The Market

The events, hospitality and business tourism industry is worth an estimated £400 million across the region according to latest available figures (derived from GBTS and IPS data for 2016), driven by a dedicated force of event buyers, planners, organisers, agencies, suppliers, professional conference organisers and destination management companies.

It will be these key event buyers and planners who will be attending MEET South West.

Our Audience

The MEET South West audience will have an active business interest in the MICE industry. Visitors will range from PAs/EAs organising events as part of their role, through to professional corporate event managers, event agencies and marketing organisations.

As part of our marketing activities we will be inviting the top 250 corporate event planners, agencies, freelancers and influencers from across the region.

Destination Bristol and Visit Bath will also bring pre-qualified event buyers from London and outside the region to MEET South West as part of coordinated city tours.

Speaking Opportunities

Companies interested in helping to develop content for the programme are invited to get in touch. We are interested in developing partnerships with companies who have a relevant and innovative message and would like to reach our audience of event buyers, planners and event professionals. We will not accept sponsored pitches into the programme.

Looking to connect with our exhibitors?

As event organisers we know that some businesses are more interested in speaking to exhibitors than attendees. If that’s you please get in touch to talk about how we can help maximise your exposure to our exhibitors without affecting their exhibition experience.

From sponsoring the exhibitor breakfasts to exhibitor-only mailings we have a number of ideas of how to position your businesses effectively.
