Event Buyers Live 2017 announces date and location

Event Buyers Live, the business event that brings organisers and suppliers in the events industry together, has announced the location and the date of its 2017 event. The two-day event will be held at the Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 on February 8-9, 2017.

Having finished its successful third year at the Heythrop Park Resort, Event Buyers Live 2016 proved itself as the place to do business when it connected prominent event organisers and suppliers. Using an effective “speed-dating” type format, organisers had multiple 25-minute meetings with suppliers across the event, to award contracts and forge relationships.

Following a wealth of feedback given after this year’s event, Event Buyers Live will be moving closer to London, which was highlighted as a popular request. The move to the new venue will support the organiser’s expansion plans, as well as provide a larger space for the ongoing rise in demand. There have also been requests presented by international businesses, which want to have an easy access to the 2017 event

Vicky Gladstone, event manager at The Good Life Experience, said: “I found Event Buyers Live 2016 extremely helpful and informative, spending 25-minutes face-to-face with prospective suppliers was invaluable, I feel I have made some valuable new connections and relationships.”

Daniel Hollett, director of sales and marketing from the Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, explained: “We are really excited to be hosting Event Buyers Live 2017. The event is a prestigious one for the live events sector, and Neil’s vision for the coming year is inspiring. I look forward to working with the team over the year and coming together to create a truly amazing place to do business.”

Neil Fagg, event manager of Event Buyers Live, added: “We’re so excited to have kicked off Event Buyers Live 2017. Following the feedback provided from our recent survey, we’ve moved venue to cater to the wants of our visitors; closer to London, international access and an even larger event space. We can’t wait to produce another stand out event for the sector.

“The Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 has a great range of event facilities that we know will get Event Buyers Live 2017 off to a flying start. It’s in a fantastic location, with a lovely, warm and welcoming team that we can’t wait to work with.
