EIBTM (www.eibtm.com), the leading global event for the meetings, events and business travel industry, taking place in the award winning business and tourism destination of Barcelona, has announced that Trade Visitor registration is now open. All meetings industry professionals are invited to register at www.eibtm.com/visit for the event that will take place one week earlier than its usual dates.
Benefits of pre-registering as a Trade Visitor Buyer include : Free fast track entry saving valuable time queuing, flexibility to arrange personal schedules, discounted travel and accommodation and pre-show information and updates allowing attendees to effectively plan their visit.
Attending EIBTM also allows meetings industry professionals to keep up to date with what is new in the industry. To support this demand, EIBTM will deliver a series of EIBTM Knowledge sessions covering the latest industry hot topics including dedicated sessions on technology, innovation, sustainability and industry trends and research (www.eibtm.com/knowledge).
The 2013 show will see the launch of the second EIBTM Forum on Monday 18th November. Open to everyone attending the show, the EIBTM Forum will provide a thought provoking opening conference and will set the tone for the following three days of business. The speaker line up will include expert perspectives from an emerging market and a unique look at the global economy, in addition to the presentation of the EIBTM Lifetime Achievement Award, which was also launched in 2012.
The event organisers have also announced that the Official EIBTM Welcome Reception will take place onsite at EIBTM, which will allow people prompt access following the show on Tuesday. They will also conduct the EIBTM Networking Hour on Wednesday the 20th November, prior to the EIBTM Club Night which will once again be hosted in Opium Mar (www.opiummar.com).
Graeme Barnett, Reed Travel Exhibitions, EIBTM Senior Exhibition Director commented, “Last year, 96% of Trade Visitors were satisfied with their experience at EIBTM. This year we are confident that we will deliver this high level of satisfaction again and we are delighted to confirm that we will be announcing a host of new activities for this year in the coming months.”
