AIME attracts exhibitors for 2012 anniversary show

Companies interested in exhibiting at the 20th anniversary Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME) can now take advantage of reduced prices, with organisers announcing its priority booking rates which will be available to all exhibitors until the 30 November 2011.

AIME will be held on 21-22 February 2012 at the Melbourne. Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) in Melbourne, Australia.

Taking a stand at AIME gives exhibitors access to over 3,500 Hosted Buyers and attendees from incentive houses, associations, event management companies and professional conference organisers (PCOs) all under one roof. Priority reduced rates are calculated per square metre.

To maximise the two-day event, exhibitors have a Pre Scheduled Appointment (PSA) diary, which allows them to meet with the Hosted Buyers they are interested in doing business with. Exhibitors also have the opportunity to boost their presence at the show with a range of branding opportunities.

AIME is an event where real business takes place, with 92 per cent of respondents of the 2011 AIME post exhibition survey expecting business leads generated to confirm or convert within the next two years.


Sally de Swart, AIME Event Director, says that the show is going from strength to strength with the number and diversity of exhibitors.

“In 2011, AIME attracted nearly 850 exhibitors of which 200 were first-time exhibitors, representing a greater diversity of companies, products and services for buyers to choose from,” Ms de Swart said. “AIME is the largest exhibition showcase for the business events industry in Australia, presenting exhibitors with the opportunity to meet with a host of domestic and international buyers and decision makers in just two days, conducting business in a rewarding and enjoyable environment with unrivalled networking opportunities.”
