Having seen London venues up in lights throughout the summer as they staged some of the most exciting events the world has seen, the interactive map and venue partners will bring events in London to life for planners at the show. Supporting the official convention bureau and event solutions service’s b2b campaign ‘Imagine London’, organisers will be shown how 2013 is the time to take imagination to realisation in the capital and harness the buzz engulfing the city in the wake of staging arguably the best Games in history.

“By encouraging visitors to get interactive on the London stand, we hope to fully ignite the spark that was lit during the Games so that event planners can really visualise their next event in London and capitalise on its superior events landscape and experience. The ‘Imagine London’ competition provides a collection of exciting prizes showcasing the diversity of London’s event and motivational expertise, offering winners an unparalleled stay in the capital of cool.”
