"All about people" event & awards

Setting new standards in the UK MICE Forums & Networking events 

 

There are a number of MICE networking events around but none have seen a growth in popularity like this one. In three short years “All about people” has come onto the scene and is setting the standards. The secret, if you like, is in the title of the event. It is “People” and their needs who are at the core of what and how it is organised. Our objective is simple. Create an environment that is conducive to build and strengthen relationships. 

 

If we could write the recipe then these would be the ingredients:

 

DESTINATION

We pick a destination which has the right attraction for all participants. It is never too far from the UK and easily accessible. 

 

TIME

Precious to all of us. The event starts on a Friday and the return is on Sunday. No real time out of the office.

 

PARTNERS

This event is guided by the Destination Partners. These are made up out of the CVB, DMC, Airline and Hotel partner. 

 

PARTICIPANTS

A balance between buyers and suppliers is key. No more than 50 suppliers and 100 buyers.

 

 

PROGRAM

Working and Networking go hand in hand. Enough free time and activities versus working and learning. VALUE & RESPECT
