MEI has agreed a commercial partnership with Rugby Expo in recognition of the business opportunities associated with the Rugby World Cup taking place in UK in 2015. This partnership allows MEI to offer shared stand facilities, sponsorship opportunities and positions on presentation panels.


Rugby Expo 2013 (www.rugbyexpo.com) will take place at Twickenham 13 -14 November. The event has grown each year since it’s re-launch under Rugby Ventures Limited in 2009 with the 2012 event attracting more than 800 delegates. It is the single biggest gathering of the business world of rugby including professional clubs representing both union and league and international unions and leagues, alongside the largest collection of decision makers from more than 500 grass roots clubs. Rugby Expo combines a professionally structured conference programme with an exhibition to produce the ideal environment for networking and finding new business.


MEI has agreed a shared stand concept with the organisers which has been highly successful at other events. This provides an opportunity for companies to have an Expo presence without the costs involved of a dedicated stand. It has the added benefit of MEI staff support. The stand will be fully dressed.

Stand dimensions: 6x2m, but may be larger depending upon number of companies involved

Package: A shared, ready to go, booth of approx 3x2m per company to include your logo, furniture, stand construction, minimum electricity requirement, and stand cleaning
