From the end of August to December, italian AIM Group International is managing 35 major events (with more than 100 participants) involving about 15.000 participants overall. All event types are involved: association and corporate meetings (pharma and non-pharma), CME courses, DMC activities and incentive travels (even from overseas). According to AIM, these events are taking place in virtual, but more often in hybrid format, with large in-person attendance.
“We are experiencing an enthusiastic response to in-person events from association and corporate clients and from the delegates, happy to leave for a trip, meet their international colleagues face to face,” says Gianluca Buongiorno, President AIM Group International.
Major events have been organised by AIM Group, such as the European ESOT Congress 2021 which brought together 1.200 delegates for an in person in Milan joined by 1.400 delegates online (read the full press release). The Cibus International Food Fair in Parma, the General Assembly and Scientific Symposium (GASS) of the International Union of Radio Science are other significant conferences planned across Europe: (Austria, Belgium, Italy, Portugal, etc.). Another upcoming event is even an incentive group from Mexico to Portugal.
“Since the pandemic, we have experimented with our clients and helped them pivot to new solutions, formats and technologies. We have had some stunning results, for example the SIAARTI ICare tour or FIMP House were recently recognised with international innovation awards,” says Buongiorno.
