MEI’s flagship Major Events Summit re-imagined as a virtual event

MEI’s flagship “Major Events Summit” has been re-imagined as a virtual event and will take place during the week of July 6th-12th 2020, with input from top level industry executives.


The Major Events Summit will deliver insightful, opportunity related content from CEO’s, COO’s, Operations Directors and Procurement Staff. The scope will include all mass gathering events ranging from festivals, sports competitions, live experience and temporary and permanent venue requirements.


There is significant commonality in terms of what is needed to ensure their operations run well and the aim is to allow these sports organisations, event organisers and buyers to learn, share best practice and engage with expert suppliers. For multi-sector companies of all sizes, attendees will be presented with the opportunity to enhance your market profile amongst this global community and hear about new opportunities as well as strengthen B2B relationships.


Whilst the events industry is being hugely impacted by COVID19, we know there will be huge pent up demand to attend live events where the “visitor experience” will need to be outstanding to ensure any concerns about mass gatherings are overcome. The Summit is a contribution to ensuring the industry can return to the new normality with new ways of working and relationships and your active involvement is welcome.


For the 2020 Virtual Summit, MEI will be providing attendees with as many of the benefits of their past face-to-face events as they can, where the unique characteristics have resulted in wide-spread acclaim. Live-streamed briefings and pre-recorded additional content will be available after the main two live-streamed content days (7th-8th July) for the remainder of the that week as will use of the networking tools and enhanced market profile opportunities.
