The Middle East meetings, incentive, conference, events and business travel show, GIBTM, continues to attract key players in the meetings industry.

Taking place from 31 March to 2 April 2009 at the purpose built, state-of-the-art Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), recent new sign-ups for the annual event include Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Center and ApartmentStay. 

Following successful attendance at last year’s GIBTM, exhibitors who have chosen to return include: Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority, Cyprus Tourism Organisation, Egyptian Tourist Authority, Etihad Airways, Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG), Jumeirah, Malaysian Tourism Promotion Board, Qatar Tourism & Exhibition Authority, Rotana Hotels and Resorts, Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority ESP Recruitment, and South African based event marketing consultants Drewe Associates.

Meanwhile, returning after a year’s break is the Singapore Tourism Board.

There is also increasing recognition of the event among technology companies, with the likes of CoverEx exhibiting for the fist time, and Hive the Solution, Ungerboeck Systems International and GlobalWare all returning.

Commenting on the current signings and returning exhibitors, exhibition director Graeme Barnett said: “With over six months before the event itself, we are absolutely delighted with the quality of international venues, destinations and services that have already committed to GIBTM next year – those who have recognised that such a dynamic industry needs quality events like GIBTM and EIBTM in Barcelona, Spain and CIBTM in Beijing, China.”
