About us

Grass Roots Meetings and Events have been delivering meetings and events services for over 18 years.

Our story

In 2006, Grass Roots Group acquired Delegate Management Solutions (DMS), followed by Hotel Brokers International (HBI) in 2008, creating Grass Roots Meetings and Events.

Our combination of clients and expertise led to quick growth, and we established offices in the US and Singapore in 2011. 

Over the years our client roster has grown to include three of the Big Four professional services firms; nine of the top 15 investment banks, and many other large organisations.

We joined BCD Meetings and Events in 2017, creating of one of the world's largest corporate meetings and events agencies.

With our shared values and dedication to professionalism we continue to deliver exceptional service to our customers.

Grass Roots Meetings and Events are now BCD Meetings & Events.

We still specialise in venue sourcing and delegate management, but are now part of one company with more to offer.
