Jaime Martinez

Kultur Cuneyt Sadic

Destinations Forever - Turkey

"The event is more productive than I ever imagined. We saw amazing venues and the networking activities helped me to get to know important suppliers. Definitely worth the time out of the office!"

Oliver Launn

Concerto Live - Germany

Edelgard Haferkamp

Event Agentur Haferkamp

"I was extremely happy to be part of M&I Spring Forum in Istanbul - we now consider M&I Forums a great business partner. Unlike conventional shows such as EIBTM, the Forum was professionally organised and there was a great balance between fun and to-the-point business meetings."

Füsun özsoy

The Grand Tarabya - Turkey

"The event was really well organised, with M&I staff hands on deck at all times. The number of meetings is great and allows for a mix of RFPs and pipeline opportunities. I really enjoyed being able to represent the whole brand and meet people interested in all sorts of destinations."

Guilherme Pinto

Maarten Tromp

Silversea Cruises - UK

"It's always a great pleasure to attend an M&I Forum. Once again your team has exceeded my expectations. I have to congratulate all of you!"

Andre Araujo e Sa

Palacio Estoril Hotel, Golf & Spa - Portugal

"This was my first time. M&I Forums are wonderful compared to the other shows I have attended over the past 15 years. I am sure we will achieve some solid business for my property soon. It was also very beneficial to share the table with local DMC - we would like to come again."

Gamze Budumlu

Marriott Istanbul - Turkey

"Meeting new people, that's what it's all about! I made loads of new contacts from around the world. M&I Forums are much better than shows like IMEX - they are more focused, the time period is just right. I have four solid RFPs so far and I haven't even done my follow ups yet."

Daniel Reid

Preferred Hotel Group - Germany

"The buyer profiles, the quantity of scheduled meetings (which lead to great RFPs), and networking opportunities were just great! I look forward to many more M&I Forums and recommend them to anyone looking for business-focused meetings with a high ROI and great fun. My legs are still sore from dancing!"

Füsun özsoy

The Grand Tarabya - Turkey

Pamela Devine

"The organisation of the entire event is excellent; the buyers are extremely qualified and come from all over Europe."

Pamela Devine Cirque du Soleil - USA
"As Director of Hotel Acquisitions and Development for hotel groups such as Radisson, Morgans and Starwood, all the properties I currently manage have reported how efficient the Forums are. For instance, Morgans just confirmed a major piece of business of 700 room nights for our London project from a lead received at the Spring Forum 2013 in Copenhagen, and the Radisson in Amsterdam Airport came back with two strong RFPs from the last Forum. As such, M&I Forums is a show we would actively recommend."

Billy Skelli-Cohen

The Deerbrook Group - UK

"Great business, good leads, promising RFPs and a great programme of networking activities - M&I Forums provide a great balance of serious business and good fun, which are the two pillars for success in the MICE industry. Keep on shaking the market!"

Geert de Keersmaeker

Radisson Blu Astrid Antwerp Hotel - Belgium

"The event was amazing and the organisation was excellent. I had such great fun during the event and I can't stop picturing the moment when everyone was dressed up in their costumes, what a terrific party!"

Marta Brió

Barcelo Hotels & Resorts

"Great organisation and some amazing evening receptions - lovely atmosphere and a great way to mingle with buyers."

Judit Stelkovics

Buddha-Bar Hotel Budapest - Hungary

John Curran

Choose Chicago - USA

"Having experienced many industry events over the years, my first M&I Forum was really refreshing! The intimate programme, coupled with the quality of hosted buyers is a credit to the organisers. From the networking activities to the 18-minute meetings, the staff were extremely aware and involved with each exhibitor and they were a delight to work with."

Sue Wilkes

Choose Chicago - USA

"What an impressive event and professional team. This has been a very positive first experience for me: I'm heading back with a few great leads."

Joséphine Thin

Radisson Blu Royal Hotel - Belgium

Ondrej Kubec

"The Forums are the most effective way of finding potential business partners and clients for our DMC services. Thanks to the whole M&I team, you are simply the best!"

Queen Sky, Ondřej Kubec Czech Republic
"The M&I Forums are intense but definitely worthwhile. Fantastic quality and quantity of buyers, who you not only meet at one-on-one meetings, but also at great networking events and dinners so you get to connect on a higher level. The team ensures the events are professionally organised and constantly improving."

Anne Tode

Wonderful Copenhagen - Denmark

"M&I Forums are a great opportunity to meet with the best international buyers from the MICE industry: one place, four days ...And you get the best of it. This is the fourth Forum we have attended and we have already signed up for four Forums in 2014. I will definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to attend an event with a high ROI...and have a good time too!"

Myriam Chokairy

Nice Convention Bureau - France

"M&I Forums are a great opportunity to meet many valuable clients from all over the world. The Forums are always impeccably organised and the team is ace."

Katerina Skouloudaki

Royal Olympic Hotel - Greece

Sarah Borghaerts

InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam - Netherlands

"The format is very efficient. I made new contacts with potential business which makes the event worth my while."

Marina Knittel

Convention Partner Vorarlberg - Austria

Luisa Cavestri

Lago Maggiore Conference - Italy

"Great way to meet a lot of buyers in a short amount of time."

Jessy Van Strydonck

Antwerp Tourism & Conventions - Belgium

"The Forum offers an exceptional opportunity to meet an extensive number of buyers in a short period + it allows you to network in the right conditions needed to create strong relationships."

Marcelino Helder

Sheraton Algarve - Portugal

Manuel Lara

"We were very happy with the experience and left with a confirmed group before the Forum was finished."

Manuel Lara Sercotel Hoteles - Spain
"Four full days of 1-2-1 meetings and networking opportunities is a great way to meet new contacts."

Chris Laghoutis

Le Méridien Limassol Spa & Resort - Cyprus

"This is the second Forum I have attended and I haven't been disappointed. I've had 56 appointments, met very high quality decision-makers, and I have received direct leads. I will definitely recommend M&I Forums to my colleagues."

Balint Bako

Budapest Marriott - Hungary

"I can genuinely say that I was amazed by the high level of professionalism at which these Forums are organised. The team is fun, light hearted but also very helpful, efficient and open to feedback. The most important thing is that these Forums are effective and there is business to be done. Due to the fact that buyers and suppliers can give their preferences every appointment is potentially a great one. What you get out of it is of course up to yourself. It has been one fantastic, fun, effective week and yes we have signed up for M&I Forums in 2014 and I would recommend you do the same."

Ondrej Kubec

Queensky DMC - Czech Republic

"M&I Forums remain my first choice when it comes to appointment-based tradeshows. Their edge not only lies in the relevance of the appointments, but also in the quality of the networking that allows you to go further in relationship-building."

Luis Coelho

Algarve Promotion Bureau - Portugal

"I attended two Forums in 2013 and my experience has been nothing but positive. The Forums are productive and time efficient, the meetings were very relevant and the networking was engaging... The team's presence on site is also a key element: very professional and helpful."

Beatriz Ibáñez

Sit Events - Spain

"Highly qualified buyers, mixed with a zest of effective appointments, added to memorable networking events make an amazing cocktail served by a dedicated team! M&I Forum is a fantastic experience. It was our first participation and we received ten RFPs which exceeded our expectations!"

Roxane Nomine

Toulouse CVB - France

"The Forums are an effective platform for doing serious business. They are very well organised and have an impressive list of buyers. Their sizes and strict appointment sessions ensure that buyers and suppliers alike maximise the benefits they can get from that platform."

Maria Rosa Ocampo

Tourism Promotions Board - Philippines

"It was my first M&I Forum and I especially enjoyed the 'speed-dating' format of the meetings and casual networking activities afterwards. The quality of the buyers was exceptional, making it preferable over big exhibitions."

Jörn Schiel

Hamburg Convention Bureau - Germany

"I have attended the Forums four times already and I am never disappointed."

Claudette Bertin

Nice Convention Bureau - France

Samantha Perez

"Our hotels have found in M&I Forums a great business partner. Increasing our participation year after year is a clear sign that hotels are highly satisfied with the quality of the buyers."

Samantha Pérez Meliá Hotels International - Worldwide
"M&I Forums are THE go-to MICE events, they have it all: top buyers, extremely well structured events, great networking opportunities and guaranteed lead generation. "

Michael Borges

Starwood Costa Navarino - Greece

"The Forum was great for our location - the buyers had genuine interest and we are really pleased with the results of the first few meetings. We will most definitely confirm business as a result of the show."

Debi DeBenedetto

Naples Marco Island Everglades CVB - United States

"M&I Forums have developed a great and effective concept: the appointments, the networking and the site visits of the destination offer buyers and exhibitors a perfect environment to conduct business. It was the first time for me but definitely not the last."

Gemmeke de Jongh

Conference Hotel De Ruwenberg - The Netherlands

"This is the first time I have attended an M&I Forum and it has exceeded my expectations. I will certainly recommend the Forums to all my partners."

Anna Vendrell Deulofen

Costa Brava Girona Convention Bureau - Spain

"The Forums are easily the best MICE events I attend each year. I walk away actually having developed real relationships with buyers and suppliers as opposed to big tradeshows."

Christopher Rost

Cvent - USA

"M&I Forums created an incredibly organised event with excellent buyers and fun activities. I like the concept of working in the morning and networking in the afternoon - always in a cool and exquisite atmosphere."

Nicholas Granger

Chateau Saint Martin & Spa, Hotel du Cap Eden Roc - France

"South American buyers are very desirable clients for us and we made great connections with representatives we might not have had the chance to meet otherwise. Moreover, the one-to-one format and the venue were extraordinary."

Sara Koff

Cvent - Worldwide

"The format of the Forum is fascinating! It's great to meet with so many people in such a short amount of time. Also, the host venues are outstanding."

Jürgen Salzer

Munich Mariott & Courtyard Hotels - Germany

"The meetings are beneficial and rewarding. In four days I get fifty meetings and networking activities that are excellent for business. In this short period of time I can achieve more than I would in a month."

Diego Rumazza

Sheraton Roma Hotel & Conference Center - Italy

Irini Varda

"Excellent show, very well organised. I've met new companies that I never came across at IMEX or EIBTM. The event is 100% MICE and the format allowed me to spend plenty of time with clients."

Irini Varda Divani Collection Hotels - Greece
"Good meetings. Good times. Excellent Forum!"

Vitor Eira

Lisbon Marriott Hotel - Portugal

"M&I Forums give me access to buyers I would not normally meet. On top of that the format of one-to-one meetings and networking sessions is clever. I am a fan!"

Christine Geisse

Hotels Holiday Inn Resort and Holiday Inn Centre - France

"It was my first M&I Forum and I am very impressed with the quality and friendliness of the buyers. All was very well organised in a professional and friendly manner. We look forward to the next M&I Forum!"

Nicholas Granger

Chateau Saint Martin & Spa, Hotel du Cap Eden Roc - France

"It has been my first M&I and I would highly recommend all the suppliers to attend. The atmosphere, the team and the whole program is the best I've seen in the hospitality industry."

Jaime Bigeriego

Meliá Hotels International - Spain

" I have no words to describe how excellent a Forum is!"

Ricardo Furtado

Dom Pedro Hotels - Portugal

"I was hesitant to attend M&I Forums for a while, but after attending the Estoril Forum I am now so impressed with everything. It's very business-oriented - the buyers are qualified, the meetings are extremely valuable, the social programme is excellent and the business opportunities are great. The best show I have attended in a long time!"

Perica Andric

Radisson Blu Resort & Spa Dubrovnik Sun Gardens - Croatia

" M&I Forums is very rewarding since it allows us to meet with a lot of new clients. The meetings are good matches and the buyers are high quality."

Vicky Oettel

Movenpick Hotel & Casino Geneva - Switzerland

Balint Bako

"I absolutely love the concept. I've attended many international trade shows and I prefer M&I Forums. The quality and quantity of buyers both lead to a high rate of RFPs."

Balint Bako Budapest Marriott - Hungary
"The Forums are very professional, very well organised and they offer a good return on investment. The atmosphere is truly unique and they have become our preferred event in the sales calendar."

Katerina Skouloudaki

Royal Olympic Hotel Athens - Greece

"The meetings are relevant and half way down the event I have already received four RFPs. I am very positive about the outcome of my participation at M&I Forums."

Nadine Moreira

Starwood Paris - France

"M&I Forums are a must for who wants to be seen in this industry."

Elisabeth Baumgartner

Engadin St Moritz - Switzerland

"A true example for the future of meeting prospects in the M&I Industry."

lukas Hartman

Guarant international - Czech Republic

"There is no better, no more cost effective platform to meet with so many buyers over 4 days and not just meet but also discuss business for future years."

Hamish Reid

Jersey Conference Bureau - UK

"We appreciate M&I Forums' ongoing efforts to create unique events that provide us with an ideal platform to sell."

Andrew Strickland

Intercontinental Malta - Malta

"I received 8 solid RFPs at the latest European Forum. M&I Forums has introduced me not only to quality buyers that I would not normally have access to but also to buyers with whom I can have a long-term relationship."

João Roseiro

Pestana Group - Portugal

"I have come away already with 7 solid RFPs, it's been very beneficial for our bureau. All of my set appointments were exactly the domestic planners that I needed to see."

Carrie Pace

Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau - USA

"The best, most professional MICE event ever!"

Sophie Volant

Chateau Saint-Martin & Spa - France

Veronika Dalekorejova

"I got 56 quality 18 minutes meetings over the four days. It can't get better than that!"

Veronika Dalekorejova Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel - Czech Republic
"I must say the M&I Forum is THE most productive and rewarding event I have ever been to, and I had never ever expected to meet with so many quality buyers."

Patrick Ma

The Venetian Macau-Resort-Hotel - China

"Super project team and local assistance! The best organised event I have been to."

Per E Wessel

Norway Exhibition and Convention Centre - Norway

"M&I Forums are great events - the quality of the meeting planners is very high, the appointments are very well organised and you get to meet so many new clients. Just try it once and you will see the difference."

Stijn Reniers

Bel Air Hotel The Hague - Netherlands

"It was our first time at the M&I Forums and we were really impressed by the quality of the buyers, the organisation and the networking. The balance between one-on-one meetings and the networking was ideal, and the four-day programme was very dynamic. We got four requests onsite and a couple more just after, so we have already integrated the M&I Forums in next year's budget!"

Daniela Pastorelli

Gran Meliá Salinas - Lanzarote, Spain

"The quality of the buyers is very high and we get a lot of enquiries. I usually receive between 10 and 25 RFPs every Forum."

Stephen Van Es

Rotterdam Marketing - Netherlands

"The M&I Forum was excellent. We met a lot of new clients and came home with several good quality RFPs - definitely a great investment!"

Erik Schlumpf

Zurich Tourism - Switzerland

"The M&I Forum is one of the best organised industry events at this time. You can rely on the organisation team for great service, bringing in good clients and providing a good platform to conduct business."

Verena Jandak

Vienna CVB - Austria

"With M&I Forums I get to meet a lot of new clients compared to other exhibitions we have attended in the past."

Guenaelle Saint-Martin

Intercontinental Carlton Cannes - France

"The Forums are intense and take a lot of energy. They are a lot of money but they are the best investment I have ever made."

Menno Schifferstein

Hotels Van Oranje - Netherlands

"We received RFPs at the Autumn Forum and expect to confirm the business soon."

Nicolas Joel

Disneyland Resort Paris-Business Solutions - France

Violeta Sales

"I have been in this business over 25 years and this is the best organised event I've attended. Diverse, quality, ROI. I will definitely come again! Thank you M&I Forums!"

Violeta Sales AMResorts - United States
"Each edition of the Forums is better than the previous one, whether in terms of organisation or quality of buyers. The 50 meetings we had were qualified and the networking was very productive. Without a doubt, we will be there next time around!"

Paulo Vicente

Sheraton Algarve - Portugal

"M&I Forums are great because you get fifty one-on-one meetings in the space of four days, which would take me almost a year to do by myself."

Stephen Van Es

Rotterdam Marketing - Netherlands

"M&I Forums is the best way to meet new clients. The opportunity of meeting fifty buyers in a few days is an opportunity you get no where else. It's also very well organised, intense and productive."

Jenny Haire

The Breakers, Palm Beach - USA

"The fact that we have attended the last 4 consecutives events and have confirmed the next one reflects how much we value the overall event."

Andrew Tabone

Grand Hotel Excelsior - Malta

"At M&I Forums, I have 50 guaranteed appointments and I have all the clients' contact details, a picture of them and their company information in the show guide. I am also aware of who requested to meet with me as a first choice. In my case for example, I had 70 people who wanted to meet with me but only time to meet 50. This means that there are another 20 I could meet during the networking sessions, or simply give a call to from the office."

Abdulla Yousuf

Dubai Convention Bureau - UAE

"M&I Forums is better than the competition. The clients have good business, the programme is fun and exciting and the organisation is faultless."

Sandra Rubio

Groupe Lucien Barrière - France

"It's no secret that we have taken most of our marketing budget away from the mass trade exhibitions and invested it into these one-on-one meetings."

Mark Felstead

Axica Convention Centre - Germany

"The Forums are so attractive because we not only meet the clients on a one-on-one basis but also during the lunches, dinners and activities whereas if you go to an exhibition, you might have a lot of buyers around but you may not get quality time with them."

Guenaelle Saint-Martin

Intercontinental Carlton Cannes - France

"I prefer to attend M&I Forums than IMEX or EIBTM."

Lucie Gajdosova

Corinthia Hotel Prague - Czech Republic

"M&I Forums is a great concept because it's very time efficient. You do 50 appointments in the fours days you are here, plus all the networking. You are really getting through a lot of people."

Jeshly Sierra

Concorde Hotels & Resorts - France

Cathy Christopher

"I feel that after only two days here I am good to confirm eight groups in the coming months and this is phenomenal!"

Cathy Christopher Inn on Fifth, Florida - United States
"There are two fundamental reasons for me to attend M&I Forums: the quality of the buyers and the ratio of buyer to supplier which is still better than the competition. Nobody else offers 50 appointments in the space of four days and nobody else offers the chance to leave with the details of 200 more potential clients in your briefcase."

Mark Felstead

Axica Convention Centre - Germany

"We found the buyers were extremely well qualified; we got to spend a lot of time with people yielding real potential for our destination"

Luc Charbonneau

Tourisme Montréal - Canada

"This is my first Forum and I am so impressed! The networking activities are great, the number of appointments and the quality of the buyers are very high, you don't have to worry about anything, they really worry about you. Everything is top class and I am sure we will get good business out of these four days."

Cristina Guillamont

Me Barcelona - Spain

"We have attended several M&I Forums in the past and the buyers have always been different. Most importantly, they are all decision makers from the MICE industry: CEOs, Managing Director, Event Directors, Project Managers. I really appreciate the quality of M&I Forums and I know that my time and money are well invested here."

Lucie Gajdosova

Corinthia Hotel Prague - Czech Republic

"This will be my fourth MI Forum. I've found them all very beneficial and business has definitely developed as a consequence."

Mark Felstead

Axica Convention Centre - Germany

"M&I forums are very targeted because they are very good at matching the needs of buyers and suppliers. We gave them a list of our high priority targets last week and I've already met with about 50 percent of those who we wanted to meet. I don't think there is any other show that can do that."

Jeshly Sierra

Concorde Hotels & Resorts - France

"The Forums are very beneficial. For example, we met an agency from Germany at a previous event and they brought us business for 450 people for one week! So it's really a huge meeting that we are hosting. Without M&I Forums, they may never have known about our hotel."

Marianne Van Den Berg

Grand Hotel Huis Ter Duin - Netherlands

"M&I Forums is not cheap, but it is good value for money when you see what you get out of it. There's also the possibility to share a table. As a Convention Bureau, I always share a table with a hotel, which saves me part of the cost and it really works well because we can do our presentations integrated into each other's."

Stephen Van Es

Rotterdam Marketing - Netherlands

"Being able to meet all these clients coming from all over Europe is less expensive for the hotels; you don't need to travel as much by meeting everyone in one place which is a very attractive concept."

Guenaelle Saint-Martin

Intercontinental Carlton Cannes - France

"It's a very good investment because you get 50 scheduled meetings, each with 20 minutes of full focus. And you get all the information and all the contact details, even for the people you didn't meet."

Menno Schifferstein

Hotels Van Oranje - Netherlands

Isabelle Grignola

"I have been attending since 2009 and I have never been disappointed. I have had the return on investment."

Isabelle Grignola Corinthia Hotel Lisbon - Portugal
"The way the meetings are set and the fact that the buyers select the suppliers they want to meet with means that you get to meet buyers who you wouldn't have targeted or expected to have business for you. And the ones you never thought would have business for you sometimes do! This probably wouldn't occur if you were out on a sales drive on your own."

Stephen Van Es

Rotterdam Marketing - Netherlands

"The networking is something I like about M&I Forums. We had the wonderful experience of a networking activity at a previous Forum in Cannes, which involved riding around on a luxury yacht drinking pink champagne for a couple of hours. I mean what more can I say, it's a tough job but somebody has got to do it!"

Mark Felstead

Axica Convention Centre - Germany

"The Networking sessions are a great aspect of the programme. I met a really key buyer at a previous Forum and she is now a good client of mine. We were able to do the activities together, but also had lunch together and sat down again at dinner. It's just really helpful moving into my new role at Concorde to have that experience and build that relationship even further."

Jeshly Sierra

Concorde Hotels & Resorts - France

"M&I Forums team building activities are really quite unique. They are light hearted, they are fun and I think the buyers really get into it, as do the suppliers. People are always really excited about it, they look forward to it and it's a real ice-breaker when it comes to building the relationship."

Jeshly Sierra

Concorde Hotels & Resorts - France

"I enjoy working with the M&I team because they know each individual client and would always find them for you if you need, which is not what happens at other shows."

Abdulla Yousuf

Dubai Convention Bureau - UAE

"Another benefit of M&I Forums: it's a great team to work with. I feel very at home with them, well looked after. They are a great young team, very dynamic, full of ideas and open to offers. I'm very impressed."

Mark Felstead

Axica Convention Centre - Germany

"M&I Forums are so well prepared beforehand: they do the screening and look for the right connections, which would take me weeks to do myself. Also the booklets are very valuable; they contain a lot of detailed information. I keep them in my drawer and have always have them at hand."

Marianne Van Den Berg

Grand Hotel Huis Ter Duin - Netherlands

"The professionalism and friendliness of M&I Forums' team is quite unique and makes you feel part of a family."

Abdulla Yousuf

Dubai Convention Bureau - UAE

"I would recommend this event to my colleagues in the industry who would like to increase their MICE business. I am planning to attend future forums as well; I've just signed the contract for next year so we're doing another three forums already."

Stephen Van Es

Rotterdam Marketing - Netherlands

"MICE business is very important for my hotel, it's 50 percent of our business mix, so I can't miss the opportunity to meet clients as we need the business and for this reason I would definitely come back to an M&I Forums event."

Guenaelle Saint-Martin

Intercontinental Carlton Cannes - France

Reggie Aggarwal

"We attend over 100 MICE trade events per year and the M&I Forums are the best of all. We got a better ROI from last year's Americas Forum than any other trade show we have EVER attended."

Reggie Aggarwal Cvent - USA
"We've already booked for the next forum and I would almost categorically say it will be on our marketing plan for next year."

Mark Felstead

Axica Convention Centre - Germany

"I would like to express our gratitude for your great support and for an organisation that sincerely does not have equals."

Simona Lollini

Grand Hotel Baglioni - Italy

"The meetings were very well-organized. The M&I Forums Asia is the most productive show we have attended, as it concentrated on focused selling within a limited time with the interests of both buyers and sellers being matched perfectly during the pre-scheduled appointments."

Yuko Kamata

Radisson Hotel Narita - Japan

"I have been to different events in the industry and I have to say M&I Forums is the best! You get good leads and the atmosphere is great."

Belen Pascual

Me by Melia, Madrid - Spain

"We were extremely pleased with the programme, quality of participants and quality of service during the Forum. Thank you for following through with all the details, assisting us every step of the way and delivering on the promise of a successful business platform for Singapore Expo. "

Rhoda M. Dinesen

Singapore Expo - Singapore

"Best MICE event of the year. Always worth the money!"

Stephen Van Es

Rotterdam Marketing - Netherlands

"I thoroughly enjoyed my first time exhibiting with M&I Forums. Both the format and organization were excellent. The service I received from each M&I team member was exceptional and always delivered with a smile! I am extremely anxious to begin my follow-up with potential clients as I am confident I shall see a return on my investment with this Forum. "

Paula Kent

Peppermill Resort Spa Casino - USA

"The M&I Forums are the most valuable way to meet new clients. Not only were the meetings perfectly organized but there was also time to network in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. "

Elsbeth Koutsoglou-Janssens

ITB Holland - Netherlands

"I have enjoyed this professional show that has allowed to meet with 100% new client."

Asaad Hijazi

DMC Jordan - Jordan

"Meeting & Incentive Forums allow to meet with excellent buyers from all over Europe in a very efficient way."

Lucas Mousson

Moevenpick Hotel - Switzerland

"Last year, we booked a tremendous piece of business from attending the USA Forum. The quality of the Hosted Buyers at M&I Forums is unparallel to any other show."

Travis B. O'Donnell
