Welcome to Beijing and to the 10th anniversary of the Incentive, Business Travel & Meetings Expo in Beijing, China. For our returning Exhibitors and Buyers, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support and extend a very warm welcome to those of you attending for the first time.
As part of ibtm events, the show provides the stage on which businesses can connect, perform and prosper uniting a global community of suppliers and meetings professionals. This event has been integral to the development and growth of the industry in China over the past 10 years.
We would like you to celebrate with us this year and engage with all of the features we have created to help inspire you to succeed. This is your opportunity to meet new contacts, strengthen existing relationships and connect with friends and colleagues over the next few days.
This show was the first MICE event in China to deliver an industry education programme which has developed over the years to support the need for knowledge about not only China’s developing industry sector but also the Asian region and the rest of the world.
This year we have Knowledge sessions on trends, procurement, how to develop business connections, how to develop technical and production skills for your events and how to be a “winner”. All dedicated to discovering new solutions and empowering your own career and business development.
We have several live feature areas onsite so you can get involved in activities including Chinese tea art, calligraphy and typography. We also have a dedicated event innovation zone to showcase innovative products that can be applied to meeting and event design as well as a community hub where you will be able to attend destination presentations and seminars and meet up with colleagues and friends.
You can view the full programme of events by downloading the event app via www.ibtmevents.com/IBTM-App. Should you have any enquiries, our staff will be available at the Information Centre (located at the front of the hall) to assist you.
On behalf of the show team, we would like to extend our sincere thanks to the Beijing Municipal Commission of Tourism Development.
To all of our attendees - sponsors, partners, exhibitors, Hosted Buyers and visitors - we wish you an enjoyable and successful time in 2015.
