In addition to their usual range of events, M&I Forums have launched M&I Experiences, the world’s first series of Forums designed specifically to bring together international buyers and suppliers through common interests and lifestyles.


Explaining the reason behind M&I Experiences, Richard Barnes says: “We started 12 years ago trying to change the way that our industry came together to do business. Our aim was simple – to create better events for forging business relationships. For us the key is creating an environment in which people work together, let their hair down and share memorable experiences. Our new M&I Experiences will take this to a new level because we’ve centred these events around the things that people are passionate about in their personal lives. Providing a natural commonality upon which to make relationships that go beyond business and become friendships. They used to say ‘Don’t mix business with pleasure’, we think it’s essential.”

  1. Snow & MICE, Kitzbühel, Austria,18 - 21 March 2018
