AIBTM signs ICCA for education track at 2012 show

The International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) is to provide an educational track at American Meetings and Events Exhibition (AIBTM).

The ICCA Global Meetings track will feature two 90-minute roundtable sessions on 19 June during AIBTM’s Education Day.

The roundtable discussions will be followed by a one-hour clinic, where ICCA members will be available to give personalised advice to planners.
This year’s ICCA roundtable sessions and clinic topics are:

  • How global destinations can penetrate the US market
  • Global meetings:  practical advice for North American planners
  • Going global one-on-one clinic

“We are pleased to announce our partnership with ICCA for the ICCA Global meetings track at AIBTM 2012,” said AIBTM Project Director, Steve Knight. “The first roundtable session will be aimed primarily at suppliers, with the second session aimed at planners, as well as suppliers who are interested in meeting internationally focused planners.”

“We are thrilled to offer an educational track at AIBTM 2012,” added ICCA CEO, Martin Sirk. “We look forward to lively discussions about the industry at both our roundtable sessions and our one-on-one clinic. With approximately eight moderators per session, we expect our roundtables to be very beneficial to advancing the conversation about our industry on a global scale.”

ICCA joins other AIBTM Association partners for AIBTM Education Day, which is comprised of a series of conferences, forums and workshops. Other partners include the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA), the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) and the Society of Incentive Travel Executives (SITE).

AIBTM, organised by Reed Travel Exhibitions, takes place at the Baltimore Convention Center from 19 June to 21 June 2012.
