This year the show was co-located with the Business Travel Show Europe and the TravelTech Show allowing full integration with the industry’s corporate community. Lord Sebastian Coe delivered the joint keynote with TEAMS Europe, a newly launched platform for sport-event organisers seeking destinations and suppliers that want more sport related conferencing and event business.
Tracey Poggio from the Gibraltar Tourist Board, joined by Britta Weiser, Sales and Marketing Director of Sunborn Gibraltar said: “We have joined the Tourist Board at this show in the last few years and are able to equate the relationship building with conversion to business in Gibraltar. There are many shows targeting the meetings industry and the Meetings Show is an important element in that mix, particularly for business traffic starting in the UK.”
Minister for Business and Tourism, The Hon. Vijay Daryanani MP said: “Returning to this show Gibraltar continues to build on its relationships with suppliers. There is much scope for development and growth in this sector for our destination and I have no doubt that in the long term Gibraltar will reap benefit to all areas of Gibraltar’s visitor economy from high-yielding conference traffic.”
