Let’s Meet at ibtm world Barcelona and Discuss the Biggest Medical Congresses of 2018

This November, between the 28th and the 30th, Barcelona hosts ibtm world, “the leading global event for the meetings, incentives, conferences, events and business travel industry.”

With a 30-year history, the event was initially named EIBTM. It started out in 1988 in Geneva, Switzerland, and it soon became a global exhibition for those in the meetings, incentives, conferences and events industry. In 2000, EIBTM was acquired by Reed Travel Exhibitions, part of the Reed Elsevier Group in 2000 and moved to Barcelona in 2004.

The three day event offers innovative education sessions, as well as a wide range of networking opportunities that trigger future business growth.
