How does a Hospitality & Travel Exchange work?

Exchange events put in you in touch with large brand buyers looking for products and solutions just like yours. You'll also hear advice from a variety of entrepreneurs who have been there and done it plus experts in topics such as sales, marketing and PR for the hospitality and travel industry.

Take a look at this programme from a previous 2016 Exchange event

As an additional and optional opportunity you can bring along one sample item from your business and business cards to display. As there will be 200 attendees at this event there will be limited space available. You may have to share a table and the surface space is on a first come, first serve basis. Attendees, buyers, journalists and bloggers can view your products during the breaks.

Please note Enterprise Nation is not liable for the safety and security of your products.
