EIBTM Audit Confirms Record Breaking Attendance

EIBTM, which is held in Barcelona, has announced record breaking attendance following the official results of their ABC Audit – confirming them as the largest audited exhibition in the meetings sector.

The Total Unique Attendance for EIBTM 2011 tipped an all time high with 15,219 industry professionals (6.9% increase on Total Unique Attendance for EIBTM 2010) attending the show over the course of three days to make the most of the international business, networking and education opportunities.

This figure can be split into Visitor and Exhibitor Attendance, allowing clear clarification:

  • Visitor Attendance including Hosted Buyers was recorded as 9,330, the highest ever total number of visitors at EIBTM, marking an 11.4% increase on 2010.
  • Exhibitor attendance also increased from 2010 with 5,889 exhibiting personnel on the show floor at EIBTM 2011

Graeme Barnett, Reed Travel Exhibitions Event Director, EIBTM commented: “These figures are a true testament to the business value and success of our show. Each year we deliver more and more business and with the addition of the seventh appointment for Hosted Buyers, we tipped an all time record of 64,950 pre-scheduled appointments, which took place over three days between international exhibitors and Hosted Buyers with real purchasing power from across the globe.

"Each year we strive to deliver quality audiences that include top-level decision makers and senior level buyers. These proven positive results year after year make EIBTM the global event of choice for the meetings and events industry.”

The EIBTM 2011 audit was carried out by ABC, an independent industry body that audits exhibitions, providing independent verification of exhibition attendance figures.

EIBTM 2012 takes place 27th – 29th November, Barcelona.
