Embassy Event Expo 2023
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, protocol officers must prepare for major meetings and events hosted by the UK government, including the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations and the Global Equality Conference, both taking place in June 2022. Leaders in world health will gather in the UK for the Global Vaccines Summit, while defence attachés can look forward to the return of Farnborough.
On the calendar for cultural attachés is the Birmingham Commonwealth Games in the summer as well as the Unboxed –a festival of creativity across the UK, which takes place from March until October 2022.
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 2022.
Following COP26, the Expo will also look at hosting sustainable events – and what embassy event organisers can do to minimise their impact on their environment.
The Embassy Event Expo is a FREE one-stop-shop to introduce you to an array of service providers whose generous diplomatic discounts will help you stage great events that don’t bust the budget.

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
