Tailored to meet your requirements like no other event
Your time is precious, valuable and limited. At the Forum, we will deliver a first-rate return on investment, and put you in touch with care home professionals who have specifically asked to meet you, would like to discuss your products and services, and are pro-actively looking for solutions for their facility.
The Forum also offers an unparalleled opportunity for you to promote your service solutions to senior decision makers, who have the authority to spend and are reviewing their current suppliers.
We organise personalised appointments with buyers and suppliers to meet in their own dedicated meeting booth. Each supplier will have a series of 25 minute meetings with key decision makers over the two days.
You are guaranteed a captive audience of professionals, pre-selected and matched meetings, and cost effective and measurable ROI, without any time-wasters and hidden costs.
The Sports & Leisure Forum was a great networking event, we made a lot of great contacts that we envisage doing business with in the near future. On top of this, I met some great people and had an absolute blast
‘I thought the event was one of the best business development events I have been to, Exhibitions in the UK are rubbish and the managed forum for brief swift YES or NO meetings was refreshing. The after-day activities went down well and gave further opportunity for discussion and networking. The Forum Event staff were professional, friendly and engaging. All in all money well-spent’
‘One of the best industry events I have attended. Can highly recommend’
‘The Sports & Leisure Forum is a well organised and enjoyable event. A must for anyone supplying products and services to the Sport & Leisure sector’
‘Overall, it was a very good event and well organised, any issues we had were dealt with quickly and nothing was ever too much trouble’
‘First time at this event. It was well organised and there was a great cross section of clients in attendance. We had some excellent meetings and also enjoyed the great networking opportunities throughout the event. The entertainment laid on in the evening really enhanced the whole event, as it helped everyone to relax and enjoy themselves and gave us a chance to properly socialise following the dinner, rather than just standing at the bar. The team who worked at the event were professional, helpful and extremely attentive at all times’
‘Well run, good venue; opportunity to meet important clients and discuss projects.’
‘A very worthwhile day talking to quality clients.’
‘We’ve attended this particular event for 4 years now. Forum’s strategy to refine the quality of the visitors, their requirements and the overall duration of the event definitely worked for us, and helped generate a number of new business opportunities.’
‘A great way to get many meetings done in one day; the pre-selection procedure means you have productive meetings and research needs ahead of time.’
Supplier FAQs - LIVE
Your package will include your appointment schedule, stand with electrics, furniture and name board, all meals and refreshments, overnight accommodation, WiFi and detailed information on attending delegates. Your company logo and information will also be included on email, website and social media marketing for the event.
We supply you with a stand made up of 3 panels (one at the back and one on each side), each measuring 36in (914.4mm) wide and 84in (2133.6mm) high. You cannot bring your own modular stand or portable display units. You can affix posters etc. with Velcro, and the name of your company will be displayed at the top of the middle panel (8” x 31.5”).
The focus of the event and face-to-face format is the pre-arranged meeting schedule. With this in mind, any additional marketing material to dress your stand (as explained in the question above) and that you wish to give to delegates is at your discretion. You will be provided with electrics to charge any laptops/tablets and will be supplied with an event information pack at registration, detailing delegate contact details and information (with space for making notes).
You will be updated periodically on attending delegates, from the time of confirming your place, right up until the event itself.
In the run up to the event, you will be sent login information for our online pre-event selection process. From here, you will be able to confirm your details, shortlist and prioritise delegates you would like to meet at the event, add information on the representatives attending the event (including dietary or accessibility requirements) and review and submit all of your information.
Working on selections that you have made online, and those from attending delegates, we put together individual itineraries following the priorities below:
- Perfect matches; where a delegate and supplier have both requested to meet one another
- Delegate requests; where a delegate has an interest in a supplier’s product/service
- Supplier requests; where suppliers have registered an interest in meeting a delegate
Once you have your online login, you will be prompted to upload your single A4 page company profile, logo and synopsis, as well as selecting products and services that you provide. This will enable delegates to see some information on your organisation, and select to meet with you closer to the event. This process is all explained to you in more detail closer to the event. You will also need to prepare any event specific marketing that you wish to bring, but other than this, pre-event preparation is minimal.
It is unlikely that you will not be selected by any delegates, as we work with an active delegate analysis to ensure that participating suppliers cover the products and services of interest to delegates.
The dress code during the day is business attire. For the networking dinner, attendees are expected to wear smart dress or evening wear; but the event is not black tie.
