Saxton Speakers Bureau has announced the impressive 11 act line-up for its spectacular Ultimate Event Experience, which is returning to the Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME) for the third consecutive year.
The complimentary event presents a range of quality Australian and international entertainers and speakers to an expected audience of over 1000 meetings professionals and buyers at the annual Melbourne exhibition.
Winston Broadbent, Managing Director at Saxton Speakers Bureau commented: “We are delighted to be involved in such an iconic event and have been able to secure, again, a world class line up of presenters with powerful content, all in the perfect event setting, and in just over two hours.”
“This year’s event will offer guests an opportunity to experience fantastic entertainment, bewildering illusion, extraordinary talent and genuine achievers delivering compelling business and personal messages,” he said.
A mix of Australian and international presenters make up this year’s program.
Exceptional Australians, such as prominent businessman Rod McGeoch and popular media personality Ita Buttrose, will inspire the audience with their thoughts on powerful alternative thinking and doing business better. AIME also welcomes back the always humorous John Lees as consummate master of ceremonies for the morning.
Home-grown talent does not end there: the audience will be treated to the sheer virtuosity of master drummer David Jones, mind-blowing illusion with Cosentino of Australia’s Got Talent fame, an entertaining and fascinating mathematical presentation from Lily Serna of SBS’s Letters and Numbers, the inspiration and creativity of photojournalist Michael Coyne; and the truly unique vocal talents of Mr Percival.
For 2012, the Saxton Ultimate Event Experience is presenting impressive international acts including:
- Robyn Meredith, the author of New York Times bestseller The Elephant and the Dragon: The Rise of India and China and What it Means for All of Us and a correspondent for Bloomberg Television in Hong Kong. Meredith presents a mix of big picture trends in economics and geopolitics with views to make better business decisions;
- Kivi Bernhard, an internationally renowned keynote speaker, highly successful business entrepreneur and the author of the highly acclaimed Leopardology: The Hunt for Profit in a Tough Global Economy; and
- CrazeeHorse, a stunning acrobalance act that has been acclaimed by millions the world over, wowing UK television audiences to reach the final of Britain’s Got Talent and achieving three Guinness World Records.
The slightly earlier timeslot of 8am to 10.05am on the second day of AIME allows Hosted Buyers to attend for the first time, avoiding clashes with Pre Scheduled Appointments.
Mr Broadbent noted: “It has been designed primarily so that attendees will leave with a series of valuable and inspirational messages, at the same time experiencing firsthand the wonderful synergy between the finest in talent, producers and venue. It is this synergy that makes the Saxton Ultimate Event Experience such a feature in Australia”.
Sally de Swart, Reed Travel Exhibitions (RTE) Director for AIME, said the Saxton Ultimate Event Experience is always a popular part of the two-day show.
“This is an incredibly popular and unique experience, unlike any other in Australia, and we’re proud to welcome Saxton back to AIME this year as major sponsors,” Ms de Swart said.
