Over 50,000 business appointments expected at EIBTM 2009

With under one month to go before EIBTM 2009 opens its doors to the international meetings industry, more than 50,000 business appointments are set to take place as the event plays host to more than 3,700 hosted buyers.

As of 10 November, pre-scheduled appointments were up 10% on the same time last year.

More than 255 international association buyers have been accepted onto the hosted buyer programme, a substantial increase on association buyers in attendance last year. Furthermore, all signs are predicting an increase in numbers attending the 30 or more education sessions targeted at corporates, associations, agencies and suppliers.

“We are absolutely delighted with these pre show figures, proving why EIBTM continues to attract hosted buyers from all over the world, who are eager to do business,” said June Clark, EIBTM’s Hosted Buyer Programme manager.

“This year we have seen particular interest from Belgium, Hungary, Italy, Poland and Russia, as well as long-haul destinations, such as Argentina, Brazil, China, India and North America.

“It is clear that, in challenging times for the industry, top international buyers recognise the value and return on investment of attending EIBTM. Our buyer-driven pre-scheduled appointment system ensures that we bring the right people together in an environment that is conducive to doing business.”

EIBTM takes place from 1-3 December in Barcelona.
