The Asia Pacific Incentives and Meetings Event (AIME) will be returning to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) from February 13-15, 2023.
AIME will open its doors next year to 400 hosted buyers, 2,000 visitor buyers and over 300 exhibitors from all over the world. Next year, the tradeshow will also celebrate its 30th anniversary.
Silke Calder, AIME event director, shared: “Five months out from the show and AIME has already sold over 80 per cent of its showfloor. We’re thrilled with the support we’ve received from international destinations along with Australia’s convention bureaus – every state in Australia will be represented at AIME next year.”
Earlier this year, it was reported that AIME 2022 generated A$120 million in business deals.
AIME will also add rigour to its Knowledge Program with the establishment of a new initiative – the Knowledge Program Advisory Committee. This committee consists of eight leaders from the Asia Pacific meetings and events industry, who will guide the curation of the Knowledge Program, held on February 13. The programme is set to spark interest, stir debate and engage all areas of the events sector.
AIME’s highly anticipated Welcome Event will also return this year, and will be held at a secret location to drive further excitement around anniversary celebrations.
Exhibitor sales and hosted buyer registration are currently open.
