Barcelona. Applications for the EIBTM Hosted Buyer Programme are now being accepted and global Meetings, Events and Business Travel Industry decision makers are invited to apply via www.eibtm.com/hosted
The EIBTM Hosted Buyer Programme provides over 4,200 high level buyers and planners with the opportunity to attend the show (fully hosted) where they will be able to conduct international business with a selection of 3,100 venues, hotels, destinations, technology, business travel and event services providers representing over 150 countries.
Charlotte Hegarty, Conference Manager, The Conference Collective who attended EIBTM 2012 as a Hosted Buyer commented, "It’s been very good, very busy; lots of appointments which is fantastic because you don’t normally get the opportunity to see so many people in one go. We’ve found information out about venues that we didn’t know about before and the convention bureaux we’ve met too have given us some tips for holding future events in their countries which has been good.”
EIBTM Hosted Buyers will also benefit from tailored Education Programmes, designed to meet their specific business needs. EIBTM Knowledge will comprise dedicated education streams tailored for the Association, Corporate, Business Travel and Agency sectors.
This years show is also set to kick off with The EIBTM Forum, taking place on Monday 18th November (4:30-6:45pm), which will set the tone for three preceding days of business ahead. The line-up for the EIBTM Forum is set to include a cutting edge keynote speaker from the business world as well as the second presentation of the EIBTM Lifetime Achievement Award. The Forum will be followed by an exclusive invitation only networking event held in the centre of Barcelona. Registration information will be available in summer 2013. www.eibtm.com/Forum
