For the first time, ibtm world 2015 (formerly EIBTM), in partnership with ACS audiovisual solutions, will deliver all of its education content from a newly designed ‘Knowledge Village’ consisting of four purpose built theatres, which will be located on the show floor.

Erica Keogan, Associations and Education Manager, ibtm events commented: “Education is an important part of ibtm world and each year we devote significant resources to providing our attendees with creative, valuable and unique insights into the latest trends and key issues in the industry and to develop new perspectives on both.

The concept of the Knowledge Village is to bring all the content down onto the show floor and make it much more accessible to the visitors, Hosted Buyers and exhibitors. This is an exciting move for ibtm world in the evolution of our Knowledge Programme and we could not have done it without the continued support from our partner ACS audiovisual solutions, who helped us deliver the vision of creating a Knowledge Programme hub on the show floor.

Jessica Ylstra, Managing Director, ACS audiovisual solutions, commented: “We are proud to intensify our partnership! We have been working together for years with ibtm and are happy with our cooperation. With our new partnership we are able, together with our IT partner Eventresult, to bring our combined solutions to the next level. The wishes of ibtm events inspire us to develop new, interactive and innovative AV and IT facilities. This year, we will build four temporary rooms to accommodate all ibtm lecture sessions and we will integrate a new and refreshing concept. We hope our services will create a buzz and intensify the experience of the ibtm visitors and exhibitors!

This year, ibtm world is introducing seven new global themes to underpin its 2015 Knowledge Programme, which will be led by an exciting line up of influential industry experts on the many and diverse topics facing the industry now and in the future.

ibtm events brings global content to local attendees with a focus on ‘choice
Impact of learning environment and uniqueness of content will be at the heart of every session

Set themes will create consistency across continents and connect planners with industry experts

ibtm events (www.ibtmevents.com) has recently confirmed that a number of key learning principles will underpin each session that is to be delivered as part of the global ibtm knowledge programme on 5 continents.

A focus on choice, impact of learning environments and uniqueness of content will be primary areas of importance within the themed programmes that will be tailored to accommodate the audiences in each show location.

Erica Keogan, Associations and Education Manager, ibtm events comments, “As the world’s leading organiser of meetings industry events, education and knowledge is a core element of our brand values. At the same time, we also know that every country is at a different stage of its development in the sector so we are now strategically working to deliver meaningful content to over 30,000 attendees all of whom will be looking for something that helps their business, and career both now and in the future.

“As education specialists, we understand that although every event professional is different, many of their challenges remain the same, which is why we have created a number of themes which will run across all of the shows.”

The education themes set to be delivered during 2015 include; The Importance of Connections, Meeting Design, Tools for Planner Productivity and Industry Engagement. Each session will be specifically tailored to meet the evolving educational needs of each region, as well as showcasing some of the top speakers in the destination.

Keogan concludes, “Our knowledge and experience of the different cultural aspects in various regions will be reflected in the delivery of content at each show. As an event portfolio that connects business people from all over the world, it is vital that we respect the fact that there is no such thing as one size fits all when it comes to education content.”

Last year ibtm events connected 5,000 suppliers from over 100 countries, with 19,000 meetings and events planners. The portfolio is a catalyst for over 120,000 appointments, which are pre-scheduled between exhibitors and Hosted Buyers®. The next ibtm knowledge sessions will take place at ibtm america (www.ibtmamerica.com) and ibtm china (www.cibtm.com).
