EIBTM ADDS FURTHER SUPPORT TO THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF EUROPEAN MEETINGS INDUSTRY

http://www.mpiweb.org/Events/EMEC2014

EIBTM (www.eibtm.com), the leading global event for the meeting and events industry, is to enhance its support for the professional development of the European meeting industry through its sponsorship of the annual MPI European Meetings & Events Conference, taking place next week in Istanbul, Turkey.

Sallie Coventry, recently appointed as the new Portfolio Director for the IBTM Global Events Portfolio, announces that Reed Travel Exhibitions and EIBTM will be sponsoring the General Opening Session entitled “Flipping the Model: When Companies Reboot in the World of New Normal” at this year’s EMEC.

Sallie Coventry, commented, “We are delighted to once again be part of the annual EMEC event. At the core of the IBTM portfolio of events, is the Knowledge Programme and our partnership with MPI through education is a key strategic alliance. Our sponsorship of the opening session recognizes the value we place on industry education, not least because the IBTM portfolio itself hosts more than 150 sessions, conferences and workshops every year at its events on 5 continents. Understanding the need for professional qualifications in this industry and the continuing education process we are also in partnership with RecertTrack, the world’s first online portal for re-certification. IBTM Events now gives attendees participating in our global Knowledge education programmes the opportunity to track their industry related professional development activities towards certification or re-certification at http://www.recerttrack.com/assn-meetings.”

The MPI EMEC General Opening session will be held by Peter Hinssen, Co-founder of Across Group and one of Europe’s thought leaders on the impact of technology on our society. The session will provide attendees with an understanding of new business models that are emerging in an era of communications and technology commoditization.

The next EIBTM 2014 will take place from 18th – 20th November, with the EIBTM Forum taking place the day before the exhibition on 17th November. For more information visit http://www.eibtm.com and for details of the IBTM Global Events portfolio go to http://www.ibtmevents.com.

CIBTM CALLS FOR PARTICIPANTS TO TAKE PART IN WORLDWIDE MEETINGS INDUSTRY RESEARCH
Key findings for Asia Pacific will be presented at CIBTM on Wednesday 12th September at 14.30 – 15.30

CIBTM (www.cibtm.com), China’s leading meetings, incentives and business travel exhibition invites leading professionals from the meetings and events industry to take part in the highly targeted annual industry research study, a combined analysis of over 17,000 meetings industry professionals from across the globe.

The IBTM Global research study is based on the business decisions and challenges of professionals as they move into a new age of global event planning. The feedback, which is received from global meeting planners and suppliers through the survey process will enable the report to deliver a clear industry overview with a focus on developments in China and Asia.

The research, which combines and compares the results of last year’s annual China and Asia Meetings Industry Research Report, will build on last year’s findings which revealed that China and Asia offer huge potential growth in the domestic, regional, international inbound and outbound markets for all types of meetings and events.

The IBTM portfolio call for research participants spreads from the United States (AIBTM), China and Asia (CIBTM), Europe (EIBTM), Australasia (AIME) and the Middle East (GIBTM) which provides an unrivalled opportunity for a truly global outlook for the meetings and events industry in 2012 and 2013. The key objective for this project is to lead industry professionals to a more global understanding of the meetings industry.

CIBTM invites participants to take part in the survey, which will take only 5 minutes to complete – for more information please visit http://www.cibtm.com/research. Reed Exhibitions will donate per entry to Just a Drop, providing clean water for up to ten years for one child.

CIBTM 2012 takes place on the 12th-14th September 2012.
