The Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME), 21 – 22 February, announces its new features that will celebrate its 25 year history, and immerse visitors into the culture that is AIME.
This year’s show will see the return of the AIME Community Hub. The Hub is a place for visitors to get connected, recharge both themselves and their devices, gather information, and view live footage from around the show floor. The Hub will feature a dedicated photo booth and an interactive ‘Post-it Note’ wall, which lets visitors share their AIME moments and inspirations. This year AIME has partnered with Microhire, who will provide an innovative video wall and interactive social media broadcast that will post live updates at the HUB for an immersive experience for guests.
AIME has once again partnered with Clifton Productions and exponent, to create the AIME Knowledge Lounge, an educational environment that provides two full days of learning opportunities, easily accessible on the show floor and open to all attendees free of charge. The Hyatt Regency Lounge has been designed to encourage people to connect by offering Confident, Clever and Energetic experiences. An oxygen bar will provide the effects of pure oxygen in a variety of flavours, helping to rejuvenate and energise visitors. Celebrating the local and international guests, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is hosting a food fair called “Streets of Melbourne” that will offer food, accessible to all visitors.
Ian Wainwright, Event Director – AIME, Reed Travel Exhibitions: “This year we focused on enhancing the visitor experience by providing opportunities to engage and interact with technology and creating a fun collaborative atmosphere for networking. Everyone involved in AIME becomes truly immersed in the experience of doing business, being inspired, making connections, and engaging and interacting with exhibitors. AIME 2017 is sure to cater to all our visitor’s needs, and features a few surprises to make it even more memorable. Beyond connections, AIME is about celebrating our community, our powerful meetings and events industry and of course, our 25th birthday,” said Mr. Wainwright.
