AIME education proves to be a winner

Tickets are selling fast for AIME’s Master Class Series, Saxton Ultimate Event Experience & Business Events Forum - a major attraction for visitors and exhibitors alike at the industry’s leading meetings and incentives expo taking place on 2 and 3 March in Melbourne.

More than 700 seminar spots have been booked by attendees. Among the most popular seminars are ‘Marketing to Win’ and ‘How to Get More Bang for Your Buck’.

Each year the AIME Master Class series brings together some of the finest speakers and thinkers from across the industry to share ideas, discuss best practice and provide inspiration to tackle issues faced by our industry now and in the future.

Seminars include ‘How to Win Sponsors and Influence People, ‘Is Green a Buzz Word or a Business Essential’ and ‘Let me Entertain You’ which is presented by Tania de Jong AM, who is also the co-founder and artistic director of Pot-Pourri and Music Theatre Australia.

The two-hour Saxton Ultimate Event Experience taking place on Wednesday at 8.40am has more than 300 registrations with attendees eager to experience the showcase of some of Australia’s best entertainers and speakers. Catriona Rowntree will MC the event.

The popular Business Events Forum being held on March 2 sees the industry’s hottest talent share their tips and expertise with the hard-hitting Business Events Forum kicking off two days of seminar events on Tuesday. The Business Events Forum draws together a stellar line-up of industry ‘insiders’ to discuss recent trends, insights and the future direction of the meetings and incentives industry.

Key speakers include events management guru and TV personality, David Grant, president and CEO of the USA Professional Convention Management Association, Deborah Sexton, Cisco Australia and New Zealand Vice President, Les Williamson, and CEO of the International Congress and Convention Association, Martin Sirk.

The AIME education program is considered the leading forum in the Southern Hemisphere for new thought and innovation in the meetings, incentives, convention and exhibition business.

The Master Classes are a valuable resource for industry professionals, priced at $33 per session (including GST) and a $5 discount per session applies when you book three or more.
