HSMAI – Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International – is pleased to bring the HSMAI Meeting Exchange to Stockholm, Copenhagen and Helsinki, in addition to Oslo. The event has been a proven success in Norway for 18 years. Now the time has come to provide this opportunity to the other Nordic countries!

The HSMAI Meeting Exchange is a tailor made meeting place for exhibitors and corporate buyers in the MICE market. Through an efficient meeting set up you will get access to the buyers you wish to meet. The event will also host speakers of great interest and value for corporate buyers.

Through our system visitors can pre-book 15-minute meetings with the exhibitors so they can plan a highly effective day. On the day of the event there will be prepared a meeting plan, both for the visitors and for the exhibitors. This allows the focus to remain on the meeting with potential clients. The buyers are granted free admittance to the event.
