Meet Lincoln, the business arm of Visit Lincoln, attended the annual Meeting Show in London to promote the conference and venue offering of the city to event buyers from across the globe.
Flying the flag for Lincolnshire on the exhibition stand were also some award winning Select Lincolnshire producers, including Modens, Stokes of Lincoln, Goodies of Lincoln, Pipers Crisps, and the Cheese Society.
Clare Williams, marketing co-ordinator for Visit Lincoln organised Meet Lincoln’s exhibition stand for the Meeting Show.
“The three day event stood Lincoln shoulder-to-shoulder with other UK and international destinations that offer conference and event facilities”, she said.
“Overall the Meeting Show attracted 3,000 walk in visitors and 750 hosted event buyers, all of whom were looking for new city venues to host their conferences and events. We were thrilled with the attention that our exhibition stand generated, and we left the event with many new enquires and contacts that we’re following up on now.
“One of the main draws of our stand was the local Lincolnshire produce that was on offer - in particular the Moden’s plum bread! Having a unique, yet quality offering in Lincoln really caught the attention of the event buyers. And we are now working hard to turn some of those enquiries into large scale event bookings for the city”.
Attending the Meeting Show with Meet Lincoln was Lincolnshire Showground and BG Venues.
Support was also offered by Flowers by Suzanne, Modens, Stokes of Lincoln, Goodies of Lincoln, Pipers Crisps, DoubleTree By Hilton, Lincoln University, White Hart Hotel and the Cheese Society.
