EIBTM [www.eibtm.com ], the global hub for the meeting and events industry, which is dedicated to driving the industry forward, has kicked off 2013 through supporting a number of key events in the meetings industry calendar across the globe this month.
During the month of January, EIBTM supported events including the Fresh Conference, which took place in Copenhagen from January 13-15, where they were a Gold Event Sponsor. The Fresh Conference [ www.thefreshconference.com ] is committed to exploring and sharing new insights into meeting design and demonstrating them to attendees in the most practical way possible.
David Benitez, “IBTM Talks” Project Manager, Reed Travel Exhibitions (UK), and Amber Zhang, CIBTM Hosted Buyer Program Director, Reed Travel Exhibitions (Hong Kong), also took part in a round-table discussion, “Motivation progrmes as a tool for increasing the event efficiency and quality,” at the EFEA [ www.euras-forum.com/conference ] which took place in St. Petersburg, Russia, from January 23-25.
The EIBTM show team were also supporters of the launch event for the Sustainable Events Summit [ www.sustainableeventssummit.com ], organized by Sustainable Events Ltd., Positive Impact, and Smyle, which took place in London on January 24, 2013 at The Crystal.
Jennifer Booth, Group Operations Manager, Reed Travel Exhibitions, delivered an education session at the event, sharing insight and routes to best practice through a case study about EIBTM and event sustainability management systems (ISO20121).
Following her presentation, Booth commented: “These events are really important as they give us a great opportunity to network with industry peers and impart the learnings we have achieved through years of experience in the industry. We hope that through sharing our knowledge, we can help other meetings planners create and deliver more efficient and dynamic events.”
As part of their wider support and commitment to Meetings Professional International (MPI), EIBTM were also sponsors of the Opening General Session at EMEC 2013 [ http://www.mpiweb.org/Events/EMEC2013/index ], the conference for meetings and events professionals in Europe which took place in Montreux, Switzerland, from January 27-29.
Graeme Barnett, EIBTM Exhibition Director, Reed Travel Exhibitions, commented: “We see our support for the industry as a year round exercise, we are not just a once-a-year event, and our clients and partners can benefit from our commitments through the sharing of knowledge and connections across the globe. Our own annual calendar of IBTM events also enables critical business touch points throughout the year.”
EIBTM 2013 takes place November 19-21 in Barcelona.
