3. Our brand new Buyer Intent Programme

As a first for 2019, we’ve introduced a Buyer Intent Programme as part of a wider strategy to provide added value for both attendees and exhibitors.

The new programme will facilitate bespoke consultations between our EventLAB experts and buyers ahead of time to scope out their event planning needs.

Buyers - with an average yearly event spend of over £750,000 - will then be mutually matched for meetings on the event floor with exhibitors who can deliver on those requirements. This means real business, in real time.
