Meet your match

We know achieving results from events is not always easy. With such a mix of products on offer, it's hard to tell who is a right for your company, and who doesn't quite fit the bill.

Our goal is to be different from other events - simply select your preferred product types, and we'll connect you to leading suppliers via our matchmaking software.

Meeting high calibre exhibitors in a 1-1 meeting ratio ensures that you'll make meaningful connections at the event.

The opportunity to see everyone in person again is priceless and makes such a huge difference. IGTM is the opportunity for the networking we’ve missed. This is my 4th IGTM and when I think about the key points in my career when I’ve needed people to help me or an important connection, it was always made at IGTM.

IGTM is crucial for my business, to get out there and play some golf, as well as network with 500 people from the industry. We’ve had 18 months of hardly any meetings so to see people face to face has just been fantastic to look at what we can do for 2022. The UK market has had a brilliant 2021, I think the overseas market will develop and come back, we can already see this from September’s bookings.
