Visitor registrations have now opened for the Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME) 2012, providing an affordable and beneficial networking opportunity for anyone involved in planning or booking business events and incentive trips.
The 20th anniversary AIME will be held on 21-22 February at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) in Melbourne, Australia, and with more than 850 international exhibitors showcasing their destinations, products and services, industry visitors are able to book and conduct research for the year’s business events over just two days.
Sally de Swart, Reed Travel Exhibitions (RTE) Director for AIME, said event organisers at all levels can benefit from attending AIME.
“Whether it’s a massive conference or a Christmas party they are involved in organising, we encourage the CEO through to middle managers and PAs to attend AIME,” Ms de Swart said.
“It’s a unique opportunity to meet the suppliers face-to-face, to conduct business under one roof and be inspired by the interesting and creative ideas which are showcased.
Education is also key and visitors can expand their professional knowledge by booking into our Education Program seminars, which have been developed with the assistance of the industry’s key associations to deliver relevant and timely topics.”
Industry visitors are invited to join exhibitors and Hosted Buyers at various networking events throughout AIME, from the popular Welcome Reception to the new Tuesday afternoon exhibitor networking drinks and new Tuesday night networking event.
Visitors also have the option to attend the impressive and unique, Saxton Ultimate Event Experience, a free two-hour session of entertainment designed for business events, which includes an impressive line-up of international speakers and acts including illusion, motivational speaking, dance and music.
Victoria’s capital city is a popular choice for conferences and meetings and AIME attendees should also take advantage of their time in Melbourne to explore its attractions, restaurants and bars.
Visitor registration is free when booking online at www.aime.com.au before the show or $22 on the door.
