November 17, 2014

EIBTM IS GETTING READY TO OFFER ATTENDEES A QUALITY KNOWLEDGE PROGRAMME, BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES AND FLEXIBILITY
With over 78,000 pre-scheduled appointments already confirmed, EIBTM (www.eibtm.com) is set for opening in Barcelona from 18th – 20th November. Whether it is new exhibitors or new themes to the Knowledge programme, new areas of the show floor or networking events, EIBTM continues to innovate and this year the highlights are:

The new flexible options for the Association Planner with the launch of “My Association | My Club”, sponsored by Dubai Tourism, and the creation of an Association hotel at the Rey Juan Carlos for their own networking, as well as their own Association Hub, a dedicated club lounge, on the show floor.

A record number of Hosted Buyer Group Coordinators, the biggest in the history of the show, will bring some of the world’s most senior buyers to this year’s event. New Hosted Buyer groups this year include: Kuoni Russia, GoodCause Travel, Hilton Singapore, Hilton Israel, Hilton Middle East, ICCA, Visit Scotland, Melia Asia, Morgans Hotels Scandinavia, Travel Reps, EVINTRA USA, Meet in Flanders, Liberty India and Mandarin Oriental France.

Outside of the business of meetings, EIBTM’s Knowledge Programme will present 70 sessions of innovative professional education, from seminars to workshops and key notes, in the conference centre and on the show floor, with themes that include research and trends as well as Technology, Meetings Design and engagement, and specific education for the exhibiting community for the first time this year. Two key industry associations are supporting the Spanish language sessions this year – MPI Spain and the ICCA Iberian Chapter.

In addition to the Knowledge Programme, there will be 11 co-located events, conferences and meetings which will take place alongside the show including the JMIC Board Meeting, EFAPCO Board Meeting, AC Forum Board Meeting, ICCA Forum for Young Professionals, AIPC Summit, The Best of Meeting Architecture in a Day, MPI Chapter Leaders Meeting and Spain DMC Awards.

Finally, the EIBTM Event app, sponsored by Monaco Government Tourist and Convention Authority, will provide all attendees with essential information, venue maps and interactive floor plan, a guide to the city of Barcelona and view of all social media channels. It will also allow users to be continually updated before and during the show with a full ‘What’s on’ guide, shuttle bus timetable and exhibitor listings.

EIBTM EXHIBITORS CAN NOW SELECT THEIR OWN APPOINTMENTS WITH HOSTED BUYERS

EIBTM EXHIBITORS CAN NOW SELECT THEIR OWN APPOINTMENTS WITH HOSTED BUYERS
NEW #BeAwesome #EIBTM14 CAMPAIGN LAUNCHES

From October 22nd, EIBTM opens its online diary between exhibitors and Hosted Buyers. For the first time exhibitors will now be able to request additional appointments with Hosted Buyers following the initial appointment match. Once logged in to their diaries exhibitors can browse Hosted Buyer profiles and select those that they would like to request a meeting with and the time at which they’d like to meet them. Hosted Buyers will have the option to accept or decline these additional appointments.

“For the first time at EIBTM we are able to offer this major business opportunity to exhibitors, EIBTM has been working on the programme over the past year and the self select appointments give our exhibitors a great opportunity to connect with buyers that they want to meet with, and also extra visibility ahead of the show. Research told us that this was one of the key changes they wanted to see at EIBTM and we have delivered it for the first time this year,” said Graeme Barnett, EIBTM Senior Exhibition Director, Reed Travel Exhibitions.

EIBTM is also planning to launch a major social media initiative at the same time to engage with its online community in advance of the show. #BeAwesome #EIBTM14 encourages attendees to share how they are planning to #BeAwesome #EIBTM14 at this year’s event, whether from a business or personal perspective.

“EIBTM is not just about business, we are probably the single biggest industry community event with some 15,000 of us in Barcelona over much of the week, there will be a big buzz on the show floor, lots of fun at the networking events and of course Club Night, we think EIBTM is awesome in many ways, and we want the community to get involved by posting their selfies and comments as well as following ours, it’s a big social media opportunity for everyone attending,” added Barnett.

EIBTM 2014 will take place from 18th – 20th November.
