The Asia Pacific Meetings & Incentives Expo (AIME) is the centerpiece of Business Events Week, with a program of activities in place that showcase the value of business events to Australia - from generating economic wealth, export opportunities and job creation, through to driving tourism and creating lasting legacies for business and the community.

Karen Bolinger, MCB CEO, said as at February 2015 the value of business events to the Australian economy was valued at $28 billion.

This year Australia's business events leaders will also attend the first Business Events Council of Australia (BECA) Policy Summit on Tuesday, February 23. 

The BECA Policy Summit will bring together key stakeholders from across the Australian business events industry to collaborate on policy priorities in the business events sector. The final agreed priority policies will give the industry a platform to speak with one voice to government.
