London’s highest-tech mini golf venue Puttshack has been announced as the host of The Meetings Show’s Hosted Buyer Welcome Reception. Taking place on Tuesday 25 June, the event will see more than 400 event organisers come together for an exclusive evening of networking, ahead of The Meetings Show officially opening on Wednesday 26 June. Puttshack is the world’s first super tech-mini golf concept, using ground-breaking patented technology to catapult the traditional game of mini golf into a cutting-edge gaming phenomenon. With automatic point scoring, leaderboards and intuitive game play, as well as well as a bar serving over 100 different rums and deliciously curated food menus, attendees will discover it’s unlike any other golf venue – and an ideal setting for networking, team building, conferences, parties and client entertaining. Hosted buyer programme manager for The Meetings Show, Graham Angus, said: “In 2018 we really set the standard for the Hosted Buyer Welcome Reception with a fantastic event that received glowing feedback from attendees. This year, we want to raise the bar even higher and we’re delighted to be holding the event at Puttshack – one of London’s most exciting alternative event venues. A friendly – or ever so slightly competitive – round of golf will be the perfect icebreaker for an evening of networking ahead of the show.” Kathryn Williams, Commercial Manager at Puttshack: “We are absolutely delighted to be hosting the 2019 Hosted Buyer Welcome Reception at Puttshack. This is exactly what we are in the business of doing – accommodating big groups, events and ensuring everyone has an amazing experience allowing every adult to embrace their inner child and enter into our very own adult playground. It is an exceptionally important event for us as we are opening Lakeside in Essex and Bank later in the year, so we want to create a memorable event that will set the precedent that all our venues can strive for.” The Hosted Buyer Welcome is an invite-only event for event planners participating in The Meetings Show’s hosted buyer programme.
