CIBTM set to gain from Olympics

With Beijing about to play host to the 2008 Olympics and welcome millions of visitors from around the world, the China Incentive Business Travel and Meetings Exhibition (CIBTM) in 2009 is set to benefit from the Games.

CIBTM 2009 will take place between the 8-10 September and will be utilising Beijing’s new state-of-the-art China National Convention Centre (CNCC), which is serving as the main international media and broadcasting centre for the Olympic Games.

Ideally located just 25 minutes from either the city centre or Beijing’s International Airport, the venue boasts China's biggest and newest world-class meeting and exhibition space. This includes a 6400 square metre Grand Convention Hall accommodating up to 6,000 delegates, a 24,000 square metre exhibition hall and a ballroom.

The four-star, 443-room China National Convention Centre Hotel, adjacent to CNCC will be the event’s official partner hotel.

“The legacy of this summer’s Olympics in Beijing can only enhance CIBTM’s reputation as one of the world’s leading event for the meetings and incentives industry, together with EIBTM in Barcelona and GIBTM in Abu Dhabi,” said CIBTM event director Graeme Barnett. “The new China National Convention Center is an ideal venue for CIBTM to showcase the meetings industry, which in 2007 attracted more than 250 exhibitors and nearly 4,000 trade buyers.

“Having seen the venue during a recent visit to Bejing, I am looking forward to creating a new fresh and exciting CIBTM in a world-class venue. The Grand Convention Hall, which hosts the Olympic Fencing Competition and is the new home for CIBTM looks amazing.”
