The priority booking period for AIME 2009, 17th AsiaPacific Incentives & Meetings Expo is now open. Companies that participated in this year’s AIME have until Thursday 7 August to select their preferred space at AIME 2009. After 7 August, space on the floor plan is open to new exhibitors. AIME 2009 will be held on 17 & 18 February at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, Australia.

Acting event director, Elizabeth Sarian, said that this year’s record breaking event had resulted in 93% of exhibitors stating they intend to return in 2009.

“Based on the success of this year’s event we are expecting a record number of space bookings to be made during the priority booking period,” Ms Sarian said.

Figures audited by the Circulations Audit Board in Australia verified a total attendance of 3,260 at AIME 2008, a 25.3% increase on the AIME 2007 attendance. Hosted Buyer numbers increased from 370 to 492, up 33% on the previous year.

“New initiatives for AIME 2009 include two entry/exits to provide better visitor flow, an extension of the popular networking hours introduced last year and a new floor plan. We have also retained the policy of fully hosting all buyers that qualify to attend AIME, the successful two-way online diary and the function-free Tuesday night.

“This year AIME attracted an unprecedented diversity of exhibitors including 243 new exhibiting companies and we expect even greater demand for floor space from new exhibitors in 2009,” she said.

To make the booking process even easier AIME has introduced an online booking form.

“All the information required in order to book space at AIME 2009 is available on our new website, including the AIME 2009 Prospectus, a downloadable floor plan, prices, stand options, furniture packs and information on the hosted buyer program and pre-scheduled appointments.”

Companies can select their preferred space on the AIME website.

AIME is organised by Reed Travel Exhibitions (RTE) on behalf of the Melbourne Convention + Visitors Bureau. RTE organise 15 events worldwide, including World Travel Market, EIBTM, GIBTM, ICCA Exhibition, in association with the ICCA Congress and China Incentive & Business Travel Mart (CIBTM).
