AIME 2024 – the Asia Pacific Incentive and Meetings Event – is expecting to host 500 buyers from around the world, welcome 3,500 visitor buyers and up to 400 exhibitors with Macau, Japan and Singapore among the destinations signing up for the Melbourne show.
Organisers are now extending an invitation to senior event professionals to apply for AIME’s Hosted Buyer Program.
Hosted buyers receive complimentary return economy flights to Melbourne, group transfers, luxury accommodation, meals and exclusive invitations to VIP networking events.
Buyers who qualify are also invited to Melbourne Convention Bureau’s “Uncover Melbourne Experience”. In return, hosted buyers commit to attending a minimum number of pre-scheduled appointments with exhibitors across the two-day tradeshow, which takes place February 19-21, 2024.
Australian and New Zealand based event professionals who apply for the 2024 Hosted Buyer Program before October 31, 2023 and are accepted into the program, can win a “Canadian experience” trip.
The prize, supported by Club Med and Air Canada includes return flights, seven nights’ accommodation at Club Med Quebec Charlevoix with all meals, drinks, entertainment and activities – including ski lift passes and lessons.
Meanwhile, AIME 2023 has been nominated for two categories in the Australian Event Awards and Symposium. The trade show, owned by Melbourne Convention Bureau and managed by Tallk2Media, is up for Best Exhibition or Trade Show, as well as Best Achievement in Marketing or Communication in conjunction with its agency littleBIG Marketing.
