The Americas Incentive, Business Travel & Meetings Exhibition 2014, short AIBTM, starts tomorrow in Orlando, FL. Last year, the conference was held in Chicago and was attended by more than 1000 hosted buyers, that was 30% increase over 2012, and 707 exhibitors, making the show its largest to date. The pre-scheduled appointment system also hit new highs, with some 15,000 business meetings taking place between hosted buyers and exhibitors.
We have already announced our plans to attend it this year and invited guests to stop by our new stand. We think it`s a good reason to visit the conference ;), but if you are still deciding if you should go or not, take a look at 3 more reasons below:
1. Networking with event professionals
AIBTM is the right place for the best event industry professionals to discuss industry issues and trends, and forge crucial relationships face to face. The conference has attracted over 500 exhibitors and over 700 hosted buyers this year! So, if you want to get introduced to the top-level decision makers and get new high – quality leads (and we bet you do), pack your bags to Orlando!
We can`t wait to visit the Innovation Zone – the best place to learn about the latest innovations impacting the meetings and events industry today and in the nearest future. AIBTM also offers Knowledge Programme with 50 education sessions and 28.5 hours of continuing education credits this year. Having spotted and noted down the latest trends during IMEX expo, we are eager to see them coming to life, so see you in EnergyXChange and TechBar!
3. Expo Floor
The expo floor will be packed with companies exhibiting new event-related products. AIBTM is the leading conference in the meetings industry, and you are sure to find inspiration from what you see and those you meet there. For a full list of exhibitors, click here.
We are sure your bag is already packed :) and we look forward to meeting you on the floor by our stand #1577 and reading your tweets (just don`t forget to use the official hashtag #AIBTM).
