Key highlights for 2022


For over 30 years the Language Show has been providing language learners, language teachers, linguists and language professionals with the best ways to learn, the latest resources to teach and ways to enjoy and deploy language skills. Knowledge, education as well as fun and entertainment.


Now, after 2 years of being staged virtually, the Language Show returns to the real world. The key highlights for 2022 include;


– A new venue, London’s ExCeL. With London’s epic new cross-rail link, the Elizabeth line, opening just last week, ExCeL becomes London’s undisputed leading venue, reached in breathtakingly short times. 10 minutes from Liverpool St, 12 minutes from Farringdon, 15 minutes from Tottenham Court Road, 20 minutes from Paddington, 24 minutes from Victoria, 43 minutes from Heathrow, 48 minutes from Gatwick!


– Not just easier to get to, ExCeL is a large, busy, modern and impressive world-class venue offering visitors a first rate experience with wonderful facilities. So many of London’s top trade and consumer fairs have moved to ExCel over the last 10 years.


– In 2022 the Language Show becomes a 2 day show, dropping the Sunday which was always the quietest of the days. Instead its 2 open days, Friday and Saturday, are extended allowing more time to jam-pack days with talks, presentations and classes and to provide visitors more time to spend with exhibitors on what have always been the busiest days of the show. (Speaker proposals are being invited via our online form here – https://languageshowlive.co.uk/talks/speaker-proposal-form/)


– Whilst the Language Show’s last 2 years’ virtual outings have not offered exhibitors a chance to participate, they have attracted tens of thousands of new zoom visitors with 52,000 registrations coming from 12,000 individuals in 2020 alone. With the show’s history dating back over 30 years and a vast database of previous visitors now recently replenished, we have huge numbers of language enthusiasts – language learners, language teachers, language professionals – itching to get face-to-face with you and to visit the show.


– The cost of exhibiting remains virtually unchanged from 3 years ago. Stand space costs £400 + vat per square metres and includes walls, name board, lights and electrics. With stand sizes starting at 2 sq metres, it’s possible to buy a stand for both days of the show for just £800 + vat.

Visitor marketing

The 2022 marketing campaign will target the three core visitor categories – language learners, language teachers and language professionals.


The show will be promoted via its large and comprehensive database of past visitors, dating back nearly 20 years. During lockdown, this database was greatly expanded by those registering to take part in the show’s virtual programme, with 52,000 registrations coming from 12,000 individuals in 2020 alone.

Historically the show has benefitted hugely by word of mouth recommendations amongst the language community and in 2022 the show will make extensive use of social media campaigns as well as reciprocal links with exhibitors and associations to maximise attendance.
