9th Annual Embassy Event Expo 2017
Where Embassies and the Event Industry Meet

Date: Friday 28 April 2017
From: 13.30 to 18:00
Venue: Rosewood London, 252 High Holborn, London WC1V 7EN

Embassy Events presents a FREE seminar and exhibition for Event Planners at diplomatic missions.

What's it all about?
The Embassy Event Expo is tailored for staff at London’s diplomatic missions involved in organising their events and visits programme – from VIP visits to national day receptions, gala dinners, cultural events, parliamentary, defence and trade delegations and investment conferences.

Following the Brexit vote, Britain is actively increasing its global reach, meaning the volume of inward and outward visits has increased, especially in the area of trade.

On the cultural front, London will be hosting the IAAF World Championships and the World ParaAtheltics Championships, so embassies will be kept busy with sporting and cultural delegations too. And now that the date is set for CHOGM 2018, planning will be starting in earnest.

All in all, the Embassy Event Expo is a perfect one-stop-shop for embassy officials to meet the right service providers who can provide you with all the expertise and services you need including some generous diplomatic discounts.

You cannot afford to miss it!

Social & Private Secretaries

It was my first time attending and I thought it was very informative. I found the wide variety of stakeholders who had displays very helpful for my role and I was also able to collect brochures for my other colleague who did not attend to assist with their area of work. The seminar on Protocol and VIP visits was on point and provided a step by step guide on the process involved
Jamaican High Commission

A must for anyone at embassies looking after VIP visits and organising cultural events. A one stop shop for organising your national day - how to organise your national day in one afternoon!

The idea of bringing together Diplomats, event and venue experts, chauffeur companies, and import/export advisers is a superb one: this provides each stakeholder with market opportunities in the palm of their hand
