What’s it all about?

This is the must-attend expo for all embassy event organisers to help plan their programme, whether it’s a VIP visit, a trade or defence delegation, cultural exhibition or gala diplomatic reception.

With the General Election in May, there will be plenty of visiting VIPs and Parliamentarians to meet the new Government and MPs. Later in the year, the Rugby World Cup will be staged, with more VIPs and related business and cultural events.

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

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
