A futurist and growth hacker and a profit-for-purpose entrepreneur will headline the Asia Pacific Incentives and Meetings Event (AIME) Knowledge Program which kicks off in the afternoon of March 21, ahead of the Welcome Party that evening and the official exhibition opening on March 22, which will be accompanied by further educational sessions via the Knowledge Academy.

AIME organisers have partnered with industry associations PCMA and Meetings and Events Australia (MEA) to deliver the three themes of the Knowledge Program. PCMA is looking after business innovation and driving engagement and human connection, while MEA takes on fostering collaboration.

Tech entrepreneur and futurist Steve Sammartino and co-founder of the profit-for-purpose toilet paper brand Who Gives A Crap Simon Griffiths have been confirmed to speak as part of the program. Australian broadcast journalist and former news anchor Mimi Kwa will host the afternoon.

“AIME’s top priority is to put on a quality and thought-provoking show, especially when it comes to the Knowledge Program,” said AIME event director Silke Calder.

“This year is no exception, our line-up of speakers will undoubtedly excite and motivate attendees. With innovators and thought leaders from a myriad of industries sharing their insights firsthand, attendees are encouraged to actively participate in the breakout sessions and get the most out of our speakers’ brilliant minds.”
