The M&IT Industry Awards auction is seeking prize donations for the 2020 auction which will take place in conjunction with the 2020 M&IT Awards. The auction is raising funds for the meetings industry’s own charity, Meeting Needs.

By donating a prize to the next M&IT online auction, you will not only be making a valuable difference to projects supporting disadvantaged people in the UK and worldwide, but you will also receive outstanding company exposure during the course of the auction, highlighting your product, logo, images and link to your own site.

Meeting Needs is a registered charity founded by leading figures in the UK conference and events Industry. The objective of Meeting Needs is to raise funds for worthy causes relevant to the events industry which may not have the resources to raise sufficient funds without additional contributions. Many needy causes do not have access to public funding and Meeting Needs can provide financial support to these types of organisations through various fund-raising initiatives and activities.
