US Exhibitors Increase Presence in AIBTM 2012

Just three months since the inaugural AIBTM, 22 exhibitors have re-signed with greater booth sizes amounting to an additional 4300 sq ft of show floor for next year’s event. Currently more than 50% of space has been contracted and AIBTM 2012 will also welcome a number of new exhibitors.

In addition to the larger show floor, Hosted Buyers for 2012 will be offered the opportunity to attend AIBTM for 3 nights so that they can participate in the AIBTM Education Day which will again take place the day preceding the opening of the show floor. AIBTM will open with AIBTM Education day on June 19th and will be followed by AIBTM Exhibition on 20th and 21st June 2012.

More Hosted Buyer Group Co-ordinators within the US are requesting to work alongside AIBTM to support the registration process which will start in late January 2012.

New for next year’s event is the addition of a choice of Post Event Tours made available to the Hosted Buyers. As a result of the interest shown by so many US destinations, the full list will be available on www.aibtm.com as they are confirmed.

Hosted Buyers will also see a dedicated Association and Corporate Education programme delivered as part of the Education Day at AIBTM, co-ordinated with the support of the Industry Associations.

“We are well ahead of ourselves and the increase in booths by so many exhibitors who took part in the inaugural AIBTM proves the thirst for continuing the business that was traded on the show floor. Because of the success of the Professional Education Programme, feedback showed that Hosted Buyers wanted to be given the choice to attend the day before the show opened. So for 2012 we will be increasing their flexibility to do so by providing a third night option in Baltimore," commented Steve Knight, AIBTM Project Manager.
