New to the show this year and to mark the 25th birthday of the show, EIBTM will be offering “The EIBTM Forum,” an education-led event, which will be taking place the day before the show opens at 4:30 pm on Monday, November 26, in Barcelona city center. The EIBTM Forum will provide inspirational and provocative content, which will set the scene for three days of business that follow on the show floor.
During the show there will also be over 60 tailored sessions delivered as part of the EIBTM 25 education program, including technology, sustainability, and business travel education streams, as well as dedicated sessions tailored for the local Spanish market. The results of the EIBTM Trends Watch will also be released onsite, which will provide an insight into the latest trends on which to base future business strategies.
Graeme Barnett, Reed Travel Exhibitions, EIBTM Event Director, commented: “We are really excited to be celebrating 25 years of EIBTM being at the forefront of the meetings industry and are encouraging trade visitors to sign up early to make the most of all of the offers and services available to them. Further to this, everyone who pre-registers and attends EIBTM, will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a trip for two to Istanbul – so there are a lot of reasons to attend.”
