One event that has come out of Australia’s Omicron festive season with a positive attitude for 2022 is the Asia Pacific Incentives and Meetings Event (AIME), which released a statement last week indicating it’s all systems go for the major business events trade event in March.

Last Tuesday AIME confirmed 17 of Australia’s convention bureaux are locked in for the event.

“AIME 2022 is set to be the next big ticket trade show to drive confidence right across the Asia Pacific region and importantly where key decision makers connect, exchange ideas, and create business opportunities,” said Julia Swanson, CEO of Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB) which owns the event.

“The show will be one of the first international trade shows to be held in Melbourne and now in its 29th year, AIME 2022 will be a significant recovery platform for the business events industry right across region, creating and re-establishing valuable connections to drive commerce.

“It’s an excellent time for the sector to come back together and show the world that Melbourne is back.”
