Meatup is the biennial show for the UK meat industry, which last took place over the two days of 30th June and 1st July. Meatup is the only show of its type serving the UK market and offers a unique and exclusive opportunity to both meet and network with executives from right across the industry.

Organised by the experienced team at YPL Exhibitions and backed by the main media partner Meat Management magazine, the exhibition is the ‘meeting place’ for the UK industry where good business is done and valuable networking is available. The show features meaningful and relevant seminars from top speakers as well as major trade competitions, together with craft demonstrations and there is always something of interest for everyone, from the smallest butcher right up to the largest processor or retailer.

Our exhibitors find that Meatup offers a really cost effective way of meeting key buyers face to face, together with other important trade contacts from throughout the meat business – itself a £24 billion industry. No beverages, no seafood, no dairy, in fact nothing but a clear focus on all aspects of the meat and poultry sectors.

The show attracts major names as exhibitors and is sponsored by a range of leading and influential trade associations.

Various high profile sponsorship opportunities are available including the two seminar theatres, the networking bar area, the competition arena, the show carrier bag, visitor badge lanyards, breakout seating areas and the bacon butty breakfast.

The show offers exhibitors a cost effective two day open period, a two day pre-build period and a one day down build for those who need it, thereby keeping ‘on costs’ to a minimum. There will also be a vibrant and targeted visitor campaign using trade journals, the internet, direct mail, social media, PR and third party databases.

Meatup also co-locates with the Food Science & Technology Show, which means there is an important cross section of buyers and visitors interested and attracted to both events.

Meatup takes place at the National Agriculture Centre, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire. A superb location with easy access and free parking. So If you want to improve sales, increase profits and to network with key buyers, make sure you don’t miss out on Meatup – it's the place to be!
