THE FIRST hybrid event for Asia’s only double-billed corporate travel, incentive and meetings show takes place in Bangkok in September on an in-person basis followed by nine days of virtual networking and on-demand content.
IT&CM Asia and CTW Asia-Pacific return to the Thai capital after two years of the event being held virtually. The three-day in-person vent takes places September 20-22 and is set to go virtual September 20-28.
The event will see new formats such as Hybrid Business Meets, a 3D Virtual Exhibition and scheduled meetings with streaming broadcasts and opportunities to participate remotely.
“This year’s show aims to deliver a brand new format like never before, differentiating IT&CM Asia and CTW Asia-Pacific 2022 hybrid from any other experience as our industry continues to evolve to stay versatile,” said Lynette Tey, event manager at show organisers TTG Events.
Hybrid Business Meets: Parallel in-person and virtual appointment tracks, offering multiple ways to meet and connect.
3D Virtual Exhibition and Walk-In Meets – All-new 3D mode visuals that promises a more realistic and engaging experience for delegates right from the point of event access made possible by Official Technology Partner EventsAir.
Scheduled Meetings x 24: Delivering optimised business leads between MICE and Corporate Travel suppliers and procurement professionals. There will be a renewed focus on face-to-face Scheduled Meets (both in-person and remotely) for exhibitors and buyers from across the region and globally.
