Between November 29th and December 1st, Barcelona is home to one of the leading exhibitions for the meetings industry, IBTM World (formerly known as EIBTM). The event dates back to 1988 and it started out in Geneva, Switzerland. In 2000, EIBTM was acquired by Reed Travel Exhibitions and in 2004 it moved to Barcelona. It soon turned into one of the biggest and most relevant exhibitions for the global meetings, incentives, conferences and events industry.
The three day event offers innovative education sessions, as well as a wide range of networking opportunities that trigger future business growth.
Around 15,500 international industry professionals from over 150 countries and 3,000 brands showcasing their products and services.
IBTM World pays for the flights and accommodation of selected senior decision makers with top level purchasing responsibility that qualify to benefit from the VIP package. In order to qualify for the latter, they must meet very strict criteria such as annual budget, number of annual events, purchasing power, etc.
A buyer driven matching system enables the Hosted Buyers to schedule appointments with selected exhibitors in advance.
These are the suppliers to the meetings and incentives industry. They come from various sectors including: Airlines & Cruiselines, Attractions, Conference & Meeting Venues, Convention Bureaux, Destination Management Services, Hotels, Incentive Destinations, Travel Management Companies, etc.
They are decision makers who organise meetings, conferences, events, as well as business travel programs and include Agencies, Associations, Corporations, Professional Conference Organisers.
