The 2014 London & Partners stand will be 275% bigger than their 2013 stand.
“The support for the show from our partners was so significant that we had to increase our presence to meet demand,” comments Zanine Adams, Head of Business Development UK at London & Partners. “The Meetings Show delivered strong results for London based venues and hotels last year, which combined with growing confidence across the events industry, has resulted in increased demand in 2014. The Meetings Show is the only event of this calibre in the UK and we look forward to seeing it deliver value again in July.”
