Priority bookings open for AIME 2010

Companies that participated in last year’s Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME 2009) have until 4 September to select their preferred space at the 2010 event, which takes place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 2-3 March. From 7 September, space on the floor plan will be open to new exhibitors.
All the information required in order to book space at AIME 2010 is available on the AIME website (www.aime.com.au), including a downloadable floor plan, prices, stand options, furniture packs and information on the hosted buyer program and pre-scheduled appointments.
Event director Rosemarie Sama said that this year’s record-breaking event had resulted in 92% of exhibitors stating they intend to return in 2010.
“Based on the success of this year’s event, we are expecting a record number of space bookings to be made during the priority booking period,” she commented.
Figures audited by the Circulations Audit Board in Australia verified an increase in the total attendance numbers by 10% on the previous year. A total of 3,581 visitors, including 467 hosted buyers and 71 media representatives, visited the two-day event. AIME’s trade visitor numbers rose by 12.5%, from 2,768 in 2008 to 3,114. The audit also showed that 832 people visited AIME more than once over the two days.
Exhibitor numbers set a new record, with 854 exhibiting companies from 50 countries participating, an increase of 3.8% on 2008. Australian exhibitor numbers also increased from 354 in 2008 to 396 at AIME 09. What’s more, the number of exhibitors from Asia rose from 261 in 2008 to 296 this year. The remaining 162 exhibitors came from New Zealand, the Pacific or from other international destinations.
