MIA Brings in Membership to UK Venue Show

Members of the Meetings Industry Association (MIA) will be showcasing their venues in the MIA Pavilion at the UK Venue Show (1-2 February 2012)  and will be appealing to the £2bn buying power of qualified buyers of events and ancillary services.

The MIA represents the interests of over 400 venues and is backed by AIM, the meetings industry’s only accreditation scheme.

Jane Longhurst, chief executive, MIA said: “The UK Venue Show promises to be an effective platform for venues to engage with potential new clients and as the only national standard for meeting venues in the UK, it is important that AIM is represented and for the MIA to support the show."

"The AIM Accredited Venue Village will be a major feature, housing a collection of AIM venues alongside the MIA team. It’s a format that has proven to be a powerful means to generate quality business leads for AIM venues, and we anticipate similar successes at this show.”

Tanya Cohen, Event Director, UK Venue Show said: “The show is clearly making its mark as more exhibitors and associations confirm their presence. It is becoming very clear that corporates want to get their 2012 plans sorted early – being the first in the season we are perfectly placed to get business done in what is set to be one of the busiest years for events in the UK.”
