Event: Conference & Hospitality Show 2018 – Exhibitors


The Conference and Hospitality Show exceeds 2017 target with 20% visitor growth.

2018 is set to be our biggest year yet…

The Conference and Hospitality Show is the only exhibition, outside London, specifically targeting the corporate market. Now in our 9th year we have established a track record of attracting high quality meeting and event professionals and over 70% of our visitors are pre-qualified for VIP status.

If you are a venue or meetings industry supplier and want to meet with genuine event organisers outside of London, then the Conference and Hospitality Show offers a cost effective and successful platform to promote your business to a national audience of event professionals.

CHS18 will connect exhibitors with more than 800 key buyers from across the UK.  Whether you are a small independent venue looking to raise the profile of your business outside of your local area or you’re part of a large chain and wish to promote a number of venues to new buyers, CHS18 will form an essential part of many exhibitors’ marketing plans.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Events

Everything you need to know about attending our events.

Our flagship event, CHS is now in its 8th year and is established within the MICE industry as the best
event of its kind outside of London. We moved to our new home, the first direct Arena, in 2016 and
grew both exhibitors and visitors by over 40%. So its a great platform for you to shout about your
event. Whether your goal is to gain new business, expand your reach or simply get your brand better
known, CHS17 is a great way to enhance your business and marketing plans.

That depends on what size stand you have but in a nutshell, its £215 per square metre on the early bird rate and £245 per square metre after that. All rates are quoted ex-VAT.

Any bookings received prior to 1 November 2016 will benefit from the early bird rate.

You get your shell scheme, carpet, 500W electrical socket, light, header board, complimentary refreshments all day, lunch vouchers, listing on the website and in the show guide and pre-show training and advice. Phew, thats not bad is it!

We have a great offering of additional activities for exhibitors. You'll find details on our booking form. We also have some cost-free things that you can do, such as items in the goodie bags (terms apply), or a Golden Ticket prize. More details available once you book.

As a one day show we feel that an appointment system for our hosted buyers might cause them to not be able to do the research they need. However, we do encourage them to scan the list of exhibitors and contact them prior to the event to arrange a coffee Under The Teepee if they would particularly like to make sure they meet that exhibitor.

Anyone connected to the meetings and events industry, whether you supply conference rooms, marquees, teepees, catering, entertainment or mobile bars! We also encourage agents to exhibit –its not only event bookers who attend!

Anyone connected to the meetings and events industry! A majority of our visitors are event organisers, whether for a conference booking agent, party planner or event organising company. We also have corporate bookers, from the likes of ASDA, HSBC and other large corporate companies. Add to those PAs, EAs and other assistants, and event bookers for national associations and you get the picture. HOWEVER, we also get venues and event suppliers who come along.

A word of caution here. Our exhibitors have invested their time and resources into exhibiting at the show in order to see a return and increase their business. While they are happy to chat with other exhibitors about their offering, they are not at all happy when a visiting supplier takes up their time and they miss out on a potential customer. Should this happen, and the exhibitor complains to the organisers, the person selling will be asked to leave the event. Our advice – if you have something you want to tell the MICE world about- exhibit!!

Of course! We offer an exhibitor party the night before the show to give you a chance to network with your peers and perhaps make some new friends. Your complimentary lunch voucher means you can spend your lunch break with the visitors to the
show, and we have a huge Teepee in the middle of the room serving complimentary tea and coffee all day – so shout to everyone
Meet me under the Teepee and network to your hearts content!

That's Great! Contact a member of our team and we will be happy to tell you all you need to know.
