MEET South West 2020 will showcase 80 of the region’s leading event venues, suppliers and agencies and feature more than 10 hours of tailored educational content to help organisers deliver more engaging events.

“Over half of our 2019 delegates control an annual event budget of more than £250,000. They’re looking for inspiration and practical advice to make their events even more engaging and increase their return on investment,” says Thomas Heiser, Co-founder of MEET South West.

Delegates at the 2019 show ranged from dedicated corporate event managers, event agencies and marketing organisations through to PAs and EAs organising events as part of their role. 59% of delegates had an annual budget in excess of £250,000, 55% organised more than 12 events a year and 46% organised events for over 100
