Embassy Event Expo 2021

Event Category:


Royal Lancaster London
Bayswater London, W2 2TY

Where Embassies and the Event Industry Meet.

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

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.

On top of that are major meetings hosted by the UK government, such as the global COP26 Climate Change summit in Glasgow, which will have a number of cultural and economic events coinciding with this all-important summit.

For defence attachés there are the events surrounding the 75th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War.

For cultural attachés the Euro 2020 comes to London in June and the London Design Biennale in September.

There will be political traffic due to the elections in 2019 and a surge of activity generated by Brexit as Britain begins to engage on new trade negotiations.

That means a busy year for protocol officers seeking out trusted diplomatic suppliers to provide them with the services they need to stage a successful events programmes in 2020.

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
