The virtual global stage is set and we have a full diary of appointments with business event organisers.
‘MeetEngland Virtual,’ is a new virtual tradeshow for Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE), produced by the team at Visit Britain.
Taking place on the 9 and 11 February 2021, MeetEngland Virtual is bringing together international buyers to connect online with destinations to discover the high-quality business events offer across England.
The virtual event follows MeetEngland’s recently launched international ‘Events Reimagined’ campaign.
Chair of VisitEngland Nick de Bois said:
“Our priority remains to reassure event planners, delegates and suppliers that our planning towards future recovery continues. MeetEngland Virtual has been designed to inform buyers on England’s business events offering and to highlight the innovation of our sector as we adapt to new ways of working while still ensuring a fantastic business events experience.”
VisitBritain Head of Business Events, Kerrin MacPhie said:
“Using tried and tested software MeetEngland Virtual will provide event professionals with the opportunity to connect and forge valuable business relationships with destinations across England.
“By supporting the sector now to reimagine their events in England we can drive future growth, keeping us top
of the list and front of mind as a leading destination for business events.”
MeetEngland Virtual, split across two days to accommodate different time zones, starts with buyers from Europe, China and the UK s on Tuesday 9 February followed by North American buyers on Thursday 11 February 2021.
Buyers will connect with 30 destinations from across the country to take part in one-to-one meetings. Delegates will also be able to explore the event platform with English destinations promoting their services on virtual exhibitor booths.
Southampton and Hampshire representatives from the conference bureau will today enjoy many conversations which we hope will result in new event business leads for the region.
