McLean Events brings people in industry together, to 'Talk Business' and is a pioneer of innovative ideas, promoting the development of new events, utilising its unique meetings based concept. The company was founded in 1996 by Nick Needs, former Development Director of Blenheim Exhibitions PLC Group, the world's largest independent exhibition organiser of its time.
Meeting face to face is quite simply the most effective way for any business discussion to take place and is the primary factor behind all events staged by McLean Events. An exceptional venue, a high profile group of delegates and the means to effect positive relationships between people, are the core ingredients.
The first event staged by McLean Events was ERPEC'97 for the retail petroleum industry. At the time the meetings based programme promoted by McLean Events was totally unique and for the first time it was the buyers who received fully serviced meetings facilities and a certain degree of VIP treatment.
To this day, whether you are a small organisation or possibly even the largest, everyone has equal opportunities to benefit from a 'McLean' event because of the cost effective entry price for suppliers, making it possible for all most anyone to consider taking part.
In ten years, over 25 new events, in 10 industry sectors, have been launched either by McLean Events or it's partners, affiliates, friends and even Nick's family, replicated in several places worldwide, utilising the McLean Events proven formula for success.
More business, most people can talk about, over the last 10 years.
