It’s nearly time for Square Meal Venues and Events Live 2014
After two years away, we just can’t wait to get stuck into Square Meal and meet you all.
We’ve got an amazing stand planned and this year promises to be the best yet. We had a chat with two members of our fabulous team, with a different perspective, to find out what excites them most about this great event.
Sabrina Stefan – My First Square Meal
What makes Square Meal exciting for you?
This is my first time at Square Meal and my first ever client focused event with ITA*! I can’t wait to see what is out there, enjoy a whole new experience and be able to represent our great team.
Which stands (other than ours!) or seminars are you looking forward to seeing?
As this is such a new experience, I am excited to see everything that Square Meal has to offer. I will definitely have a peak at other stands to get a feel of what else is out there. The seminars that I have signed up to are Best New Venues 2014 and Social Media: Top 10 tips & trends as both these topics relate to my job.
After talking to the ITA* team about their previous experiences, is there anything that you’re particularly looking forward to?
The interaction with our clients – it’s a great way to get my name out there and build relationships with all kinds of event bookers and other industry professionals.
We’ve got an exciting stand this year – how do you think it will be received?
I think our stand is going to attract a huge amount of people, it is incredibly eye catching and unique! ITA* will definitely leave a lasting impression on everyone!
Claire Phelps – Seasoned Square Meal Exhibitor
What have you enjoyed most at past years at Square Meal?
For those of us in the events industry, it really has everything you need under one roof: venues, caterers, suppliers… you name it. As an event booker you can go armed with your enquiries for the year and come back with all of the info; it’s a great chance to see the venues and meet the teams you will be working with. This works brilliantly for us as ITA* is so people focussed.
Our flash mob from two years ago was good fun and created a fab buzz around our stand, a success we’re hoping to repeat and maybe even improve upon.
Have you heard of anything new that other people are doing that you’re particularly looking forward to?
Not yet but the excitement is really starting now. Other venues and suppliers will keep their plans close to their chest and want to create an impact on the day.
ITA* have not attended for the past two years – we’re looking forward to going back, meeting our current event bookers and hopefully new ITA* event bookers.
We love the energy on the stand, and love meeting people and finding out how we can help.
Why is this year the most exciting yet from ITA*?
We have a really strong campaign for this year, and we will be bringing our Little Black Book to life at the event. Our aim is to make the show interesting to the event booker and inject some fun, rather than just being another stand. We’ve got a fabulous team and we can’t wait to introduce them.
