The convention and incentive industries have thrown their weight behind AIME 2007, with strong bookings flowing in from previous exhibitors during the priority booking period. AIME Event Director, Rosemarie Sama, said early indications suggest the return to February has been well accepted.
“Companies booking space have been delighted that AIME is returning to 13 & 14 February. They have also confirmed their support for AIME as the premier event for the industry in the Asia Pacific region,” she said.
“We will once again see increased space being taken by Asia destinations including Hong Kong, India and China and international exhibitors from the northern hemisphere and the Middle East. Australian support has also been strong with exhibitors from Queensland and the Northern Territory looking at larger stands and Melbourne increasing its space once again,” Ms Sama said.
AIME 2007 will mark the 15th staging of the event which has grown to include more than 850 exhibitors from 50 countries.
More than 400 Hosted Buyers and 2,000 trade visitors will attend AIME 2007, and according to Rosemarie Sama there is significant interest in the Hosted Buyer Programme.
“We already have many applications from potential Hosted Buyers who understand the importance of attending AIME if they have business to facilitate in the region,” she said.
Ms Sama said that Reed Travel Exhibitions would be announcing some new initiatives for AIME 2007 in the coming months.
“We have been working closely with Melbourne Convention + Visitors Bureau (MCVB), the owners of AIME, to introduce some new and exciting events that will add even further value to AIME 2007.”
