About Embassy events
Embassy Events host a number of annual conferences, seminars and exhibitions introducing diplomats to key contacts and suppliers in the UK.
Meet face to face with decision-makers within diplomatic missions seeking to buy your goods and services.
Our events have an excellent reputation and are always very well attended, attracting around 120-150 diplomats from more than 85 missions.
Our events are developed through extensive consultations with diplomats, making them relevant to their needs. Exhibiting at an event is one of the most effective ways to expand your diplomatic business and gain valuable contacts at missions.
About the Diplomatic market
London has the biggest bilateral diplomatic community in the world, numbering some 22,500* diplomats and their families. They represent more than 160 countries and their diplomatic status makes them different to any other market.
Every year London’s diplomatic missions spend nearly £2.3bn** on goods and services in the UK, both as individuals and as part of the mission’s official expenditure.
Our subscribers belong to the ABC1 consumer group and are drawn from the political and professional elite in their countries. Around half of the heads of mission in London are hand-picked by their heads of state and are personally wealthy.
Our subscribers frequently enjoy generous living allowances for themselves and their families as well as tax-free privileges. Many have to fulfil representational duties.
No matter what the economic climate, there is always room in an embassy budget for services and products.
Every year, around one-third of the corps changes, meaning there is always a new market to promote your goods and services to. But it also means service providers cannot afford to be complacent!
A virtual network of more than 4000 individual diplomatic subscribers (and growing) log on to the website and receive our monthly magazine directly in their inbox. It is also forwarded within embassy intranets to locally employed staff and family members.
Many diplomats posted in more than 50 countries have requested to remain on our circulation list, making our network global. Our digital format is ideal for diplomats, who receive and distribute information instantaneously, making our readership considerably wider than our official subscriber database. In a few easy clicks, relevant intelligence can be forwarded to diplomatic networks and foreign ministries across the globe – without weighing down the diplomatic bag.
