EIBTM Welcomes Over 42 New Exhibitors to the Show

EIBTM will see 42 new destinations, DMC’s and venues present at the show this year which takes place in the Fira Gran Via, Barcelona (29 November – 1 December).

New suppliers exhibiting for the first time include: American Express, Calima Marketing Turistico Sl, Btg Event Solutions DMC & PCO, Louvre Hotels Group, Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau, ATAHOTELS Spa, Pepper and Salt Event Group, 2morrow srl, H10 Hotels, Georgian National Tourism Agency and Riga Tourism Development Bureau.

EIBTM, a Reed Travel Exhibitions event, has also seen 43 exhibitors from 2010 expand the size of their stand to accommodate more sharing companies who plan to do business at the event. These include Pacific World Asia / Ultramar Events Spain, Hungarian National Tourist Office, Moscow Exhibition and Convention Agency, Finland Convention Bureau, NH Hoteles and Cyprus Tourism Organisation - others are expected to follow.

Reed Travel Exhibitions Event Director EIBTM, Graeme Barnett commented: “EIBTM expects to see over 3,800 Hosted Buyers with serious purchasing power attend the show this year - 47% of Hosted Buyers attending EIBTM 2010 had annual meetings budgets of over $1m - so it is not surprising that suppliers of products and services for this industry should choose to attend EIBTM as part of their strategic marketing plans.”

“Exhibitors at the show benefit from tailored solutions for their sales and marketing objectives from having a stand presence to brand enhancing sponsorship which supports them further in delivering the best possible return on investment from their participation at the show.”
