Meanwhile, NBTC Holland Marketing is onboard as the exclusive destination supporter and partner for this 2016 event.
â€śMeeting professionals from around the globe attend ibtm world, which is great exposure for the foundation and its effort to fund education and pan-industry research,â€ť said Paul Van Deventer, president and CEO of MPI.
NBTC Holland Marketingâ€™s director for meetings & events, Eric Bakermans, added: â€śIt perfectly fits our goals to create awareness for Holland as a business event destination and it will be virtually impossible to miss out on this night full of fun and dancing.â€ť
