July 6, 2022

Anniversary – The 10th in fact! Launched in 2013, it has been amazing to be with the show since the beginning. Check out our retrospective blog here.

Bonding between our team members – It is always valuable to spend so much time together over the course of the week.

Deals that we are currently working to close. 

Elizabeth Line – What a difference this new, spacious, and air-conditioned tube makes to the journey to the ExCeL!

Friendly faces of all of our industry peers that were our neighbours on the show floor. 

Global exhibitors – Gianna from our team loved visiting her native country Korea’s stand. Maggie from our team also loved seeing her hometown Perth (Western Australia) exhibiting at the show. 

Hugs – How good are they? We missed them!

MESA – The Meetings & Events Support Association had a stand close to ours during the show. We are proud Patron Members, and our CEO John Martinez is part of the Steering Committee. You can follow them on LinkedIn here.

Networking drinks for the exhibitors – A nice reward for our team after a long day on our feet, complete with a DJ. We’ve had “What does the fox say” stuck in our head since last week!

Online connections that we made pre, during, and post-show.

Prize wheel winners – We hope everyone had fun spinning for a prize!

Queue at The Fox pub – Another great place to network after the show doors have closed each day. We are always amazed at how the patient staff handles the thirsty masses.

Rotisserie chicken, a firm team favourite for a meal at the ExCeL. Check them out here.

Satisfaction that we feel after our van is loaded at the end of the show, knowing that we’ve had a successful few days.

eXtra hot leads that we collected. 

Youngsters visiting the show for the first time, who will make up the future of our industry. Also congrats to all of the winners in The Meetings Show’s Tomorrow’s Talent competition

Zillion – The number of familiar and new faces it feels like we met during the week of the show (and also the hours of sleep we had after such a busy week).
