BTN Europe presents an overview of business travel and MICE predictions for this year
ExCeL London - 24-25 February 2021
Capita has been awarded the contract to manage travel to the new Meetings Show in London this summer.
Centaur Exhibitions, which also runs the annual Business Travel Show in London every February, is launching the new three-day event for the MICE market at Olympia on July 9-11.
The company has announced a partnership with Capita Travel and Events to act as the event’s TMC which will include bringing an estimated 1,500 hosted buyers from across the UK and Europe to London for the show. Capita will be responsible for all hosted buyers’ travel and accommodation from their registration until the event is held.
Centaur also revealed a partnership with Spectra to provide destination marketing services for the show which will include putting on networking and other events for the hosted buyers as well as providing logistical support during the week of the show.
Meetings Show UK event director Steve Knight said: "To deliver the perfect hosted buyer experience we need to work with dedicated professional experts, who understand that each hosted buyer is an individual with their own needs and requirements.
“As our DMC and TMC providers, Spectra and Capita Travel and Events are integral to ensuring our hosted buyers receive a five-star service. Both companies have highly respected reputations and we look forward to the benefits their logistical genius will bring to the show.”
As well as the hosted buyers, organisers are predicting that more than 3,000 other UK-based buyers from the corporate, association, agency and public sectors will also attend the Meetings Show.
Paul Hussey, Capita’s strategic business development manager, added: “As one of the first points of contact for hosted buyers, we have a great opportunity to give them the very best first impressions of this new event.”
