Over the two-day events, attendees have meetings with a selection of companies and agencies from a range of industries such as pharmaceutical, financial and automotive. 

Designed to focus on business, the events also aim to be enjoyable and provide opportunities to make business contacts.  The events include drinks receptions, gala dinners and networking activities which enables contacts and relationships to be made and allows the buyers to learn about the host destination.

Paul Smith, from Octopus Communications attended the GH UK Forum 2007, “It was one of the best factual industry events I have attended in the last eight years. The setting was superb, the quality of hotels was top class and the meeting structure was perfectly balanced with meetings intertwined with delicious lunches, dinners and leisure activities.
