AIME will be expanding the event’s footprint by an additional two bays at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre next year.
This growth allows the introduction of new zones, such as The Boutique and DMC Network.
A dedicated zone for the world’s boutique experience makers, The Boutique will showcase such operators as small, independently-owned wineries with intimate spaces, design-led luxury venues with distinct personalities and services to match, and other bespoke and highly customisable experiences.
Also, for the first time at AIME, a dedicated zone for Destination Management Companies (DMCs) will exist – the DMC Network. This space will bring together on-the-ground teams from all over the world to curate tailored experiences for conferences, incentives and events in their region.
AIME 2024 will also feature dedicated spaces on the showfloor for those impromptu meetings, facilitating more networking opportunities across the three days of the event.
Held alongside the AIME tradeshow, the Ideas Academy will provide visitors access to short, thought-provoking panel discussions and sessions.
Presented by industry publication Spice Magazine, each Ideas Academy session will be delivered silently via individual headphones, with high-quality, informative content providing practical takeaways for attendees to implement in their business.
Sessions will run continuously at AIME on February 20 and 21, 2024, and are free for all attendees.
Visitor registration for AIME opens November 13, 2023.
