AIME organisers are encouraging attendees to the show to conduct business on and off the show floor through its dedicated networking events. The unrivalled networking opportunities, which kick off with the renowned Welcome Reception at 6pm on Monday 14th February, are considered a key benefit of attending the event.
AIME’s Welcome Reception, organised by the Melbourne Convention + Visitors Bureau (MCVB), will be held at the St. Kilda Sea Baths in Melbourne. It is one of the industry’s most talked about events and last year attracted over 2,200 AIME attendees from over 50 countries. The creative concept, staging and design for the AIME 2011 Welcome Reception, showcases the best in event production and is executed with the assistance of key event sponsors Atlantic Group, Solution Red and Explore Engage.
Sandra Chipchase, CEO of MCVB said that a drawcard for the Welcome Reception is not only the reputation of the event but the unique location chosen for this year.
“Melbourne’s avant-garde seaside suburb, St Kilda, will be on show during AIME 2011 and the use of the St Kilda Sea Baths for a major event marks a first for AIME. It will see the Sea Baths complex transform into a series of distinct spaces, each set around the oceania and spa theme to take full advantage of the stunning location on Port Phillip Bay.”
Networking events do not end there, there is also a dedicated networking hour at AIME’s Globe Restaurant and Bar during AIME and in the evening attendees can mingle and dance the night away at the ever popular AIME Club Night at Crown on Tuesday 15th February with complimentary drinks until 11pm, courtesy of Crown Events and Conferences. Also attendees can take advantage of the 601 and 501 networking evenings at Lagerfield Bar in the Crown Entertainment Centre with special drinks promotions on offer.
