Business: Leading Global Hotel Groups choose GIBTM

Abu Dhabi. With less than three months to go GIBTM - the Gulf Incentive, Business Travel & Meetings Exhibition - has attracted some of the world’s leading global hotel groups. The event takes place in Abu Dhabi from 31st March – 2nd April 2009. Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts, Hilton International, Jumeirah, Rotana Hotels and Resorts, Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG), Marriott Hotels International and Leading Hotels of the World have all recognized the importance GIBTM plays in maintaining, developing and attracting regional and international business by signing up to participate.

Thorsten Meir, Managing Director, Worldwide Leading Group Sales, on the importance of GIBTM to the hotel groups comments:“Leading Group Sales is a long standing supporter of RTE’s meetings industry shows and we strongly believe that GIBTM will continue its successful development. It is an ideal mixture of a region/destination which is more and more requested for meetings by buyers both internationally and from the region. We have increased our stand compared to previous years as more of our hotels followed our recommendation to participate. With RTE’s classical and proven concept of carefully qualifying buyers for pre-scheduled appointments we are looking forward to a successful show.”
