The event was launched as we spotted a need in the event industry for an exhibition focused on the Christmas buying period of the year. Now in it’s sixth edition and running annually in May, it brings together around 80 event venues with over 800 event buyers who are looking to gain inspiration for their next event.


Our main aim is to ensure that this is no normal exhibition experience. As well as offering our visitors and exhibitors complimentary breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, there is live entertainment and the event is given a different Christmas theme each year. This is to ensure we create a relaxed atmosphere ideal for networking and bringing event briefs to life.
