Organisers of the Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME), Reed Travel Exhibitions (RTE), today announced new show dates for AIME 2013, which will now take place on the 26 and 27 February 2013.
Previously announced March 2013 dates have been revised as exhibition space at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) became available in February when the show is usually held.
Sally de Swart, RTE’s Director for AIME, said the change of dates has been well received following collaboration with key buyers.
“February best suits the industry diary and allows AIME to remain the first meetings and incentives event on the year’s calendar, so we’re really happy with the revised dates for the 2013 show,” Ms de Swart said.
Karen Bolinger, Chief Executive Officer of the Melbourne Convention + Visitors Bureau (MCVB), which owns AIME, said she was pleased that space had opened up at the MCEC.
“Over the last two decades, AIME has traditionally been held in February, so we are delighted that the revised dates will ensure the show is consistent with previous years,” Ms Bolinger said.
AIME 2013 will bring together exhibitors, Hosted Buyers and visitors from the meetings and incentives industry from around the world to network and do business over the two-day event.
AIME organisers are now taking bookings for exhibitor space, with 50 per cent of the floor space already committed for 2013.
