    International Association Research and Sales Lead Development

    Here at Watterston Associates we are destination strategists. Specialising in international association lead generation and business development for conference destinations and venues, we provide highly qualified sales leads to our destination clients. We enable them to secure a larger percentage of international association business and give them a strong return on investment.

    We are proud to have been one of the very first consultancies in the conference industry specialising in international association research and our team of three, Julie Watterston, Mary Lewsey and Janet Rossiter, all have extensive experience in this field.

    We have built excellent relationships with a large number of international association executives and regularly organise client dinners, breakfasts, hospitality events and European roadshows for our destination clients to meet with the international association decision makers.

    We will be inviting International Associations to apply for Hosted Buyer status at the following trade shows in 2016. Registration links to follow but please ‘Save the Dates’ and email julie@watterston.com to register your interest:
