Australia – The Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME) next year will see a 46-per-cent increase in hosted buyer numbers compared to 2013, an indication of the programme’s popularity.

“Showcasing over 750 exhibitors from five continents, we know that AIME is an ideal event for meetings and events buyers but we have also been working to tap into new audiences via our Ambassadors, who are located around the globe,” exhibition director of AIME and CIBTM, Jacqui Timmins, said.

These ambassadors are senior-level industry professionals who play a role in identifying and inviting key clients from their region and key markets to attend AIME as hosted buyers.

AIME will be held at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on February 18-19, 2014.
