Brussels. The concept of EMIF has been relaunched with the support of Paul Kennedy, former Group Exhibition Director for the EIBTM Group. Kennedy came on board in March 2011 as a strategic adviser of EMIF. The 2012 edition of the meetings exhibition in the Brussels based Tour & Taxis Exhibition Centre will now have a stronger focus on hosted buyers. 400 are to be invited. “As an important European marketplace and meetings place, it is only natural that the team expands the networking possibilities for the exhibitors and visitors to meet and connect”, explains Kennedy. Online visitor and Hosted Buyer registration will be possible as from 1 September.
