Co-location of Industry Meetings at EIBTM

With only a matter of days until EIBTM (www.eibtm.com), some of the world’s most influential industry organisations have announced that they are to hold events in Barcelona during EIBTM (30 November – 2 December 2010) to make the most of their attendance at the exhibition.

EIBTM has provided the seed funding to set up Project Meeting Architecture, where part of this sponsorship will see the first annual board meeting taking place during EIBTM in Barcelona.

MPI has a busy week, starting with the Chapter Leaders Conference on Sunday 28 November and the MPI Global Training Day on Monday 29 November. MPI and EIBTM have a strong commitment to providing industry professionals with globally standardised content, which increases crucial core knowledge and correspondingly heightens the value and effectiveness of meetings and business events.

The AIPC Facility Operations Summit on Monday 29 November will bring together operations and event managers from around the world to address key operations issues and strategies.

The Joint Meetings Industry Council (JMIC) Board Meeting will also take place on Monday 29 November. On Tuesday 30 November, the first Congrex Client Forum will take place following the continuation of their partnership with EIBTM.

The Green Meetings Industry Council (GMIC) will hold its board meeting at EIBTM for the first time this year. The council has made a substantial contribution to the educational content of the Green Room sessions - a series of sessions running all day on Wednesday, focusing on case studies and best practices on sustainability.

In addition, 20 industry professionals, 30 years of age or under, will join ICCA and EIBTM from Saturday 27 November to Tuesday 30 November for the ICCA Forum for Young Professionals in a programme of education, networking and a visit to EIBTM.
