The dates have been moved to allow time for travel restrictions to be eased so that as many as possible of the event’s international audience can attend in person, according to IBTM Organiser Reed Travel Exhibitions. The decision was also taken following discussions with international event planners and customers.
IBTM Asia Pacific will be designed to meet the requirements of Singapore’s Safe Business Events (SBE) Framework. Developed based on international best practices in consultation with the industry, the SBE Framework is a stringent set of measures which take into account an event attendee's end-to-end journey, with the aim of creating a safe environment for business events.
IBTM Asia Pacific is a major event for the meetings and events industry in the region, bringing together a high calibre group of international and regional meeting planners and exhibitors for two days of pre-scheduled one-to-one business meetings, education and networking. According to IBTM already 50 per cent of exhibitor space has been sold.
The event is under-pinned by a Hosted Buyer programme which creates personalised appointment diaries for Hosted Buyers and exhibitors to ensure that delegates only meet people with whom there’s a very good chance of doing business.
