New stream for ABEE Hosted Buyer Program

Business Events Sydney (BESydney), in conjunction with the Australian Business Event Expo (ABEE), has expanded the ABEE Hosted Buyer Program in 2012 to include a Semi-hosted Buyer Program for the first time.

Last year’s Hosted Buyer Program catered for a qualified number of fully hosted buyers. This year, expanding the program to two streams will introduce more local buyers to the show floor and enhance the quality and quantity of appointments for exhibitors.




Hosted buyers will receive complimentary Qantas return travel to Sydney and two nights' accommodation in a leading Sydney hotel. This program includes participation in the educational program, scheduled appointments, a full-day destination site inspection tour, gala events and all ground logistics.

Semi-hosted buyers will have the opportunity to schedule appointments with suppliers, listen to selected speakers on the educational program and enjoy the ABEE Hosted Buyer Dinner. They will also have the option of participating in a full-day destination site inspection tour. 

“The expansion of the ABEE Hosted Buyer Program is a strategic decision to ensure ABEE’s show floor continues to be a dynamic platform for supplier and client connection, networking and business,” said BESydney chief executive Lyn Lewis-Smith.

“The two distinct programs ensure that both the hosted and semi-hosted buyer experience is productive, as well as educational, and really delivers on the modern day buyer’s needs. We’ve acted on feedback provided by previous participants and have made supplier appointments, key site inspections and networking the priorities in both programs.”

This year’s expo runs from August 15–16, 2012, at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre. For more information, visit www.abeexpo.com.au.
