Commenting on his plans to attend ibtm Arabia, Jad Taktak, General Manager, Semark, Saudi Arabia, said that he was attending to stay up to date with the new venues for his company's exhibitions and events, and finding new plans for new projects.

Working in partnership with ibtm arabia exhibitors, the one-to-one business event is recruiting buyers who exhibitors have specifically requested according to their business objectives. In total, up to 200 Hosted Buyers will come from Middle East, Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, South America and Africa, and are qualified under criteria including their purchasing authority, their annual Middle East and international MICE business organised, confirmation of their annual budget and future business to place at ibtm arabia. In addition each of these Hosted Buyers will not have attended GIBTM in 2014. 

For the first time, and unique to the region, ibtm arabia will allow both exhibitors and Hosted Buyers to select online who they would like to schedule a meeting with, and their appointments will be mutually matched based on the preferences of both parties. Some 30 appointments will be provided to each exhibitor and Hosted Buyer on a one-to-one ratio over the duration of the event.

“We have designed ibtm arabia to be...an event created on a more personal level for networking, combining opportunities to do everything together from the outset," said Lois Wilcox, exhibition manager, ibtm arabia in a statement. "We will have a Discovery Day where exhibitors and Hosted Buyers can share time seeing and learning about Abu Dhabi, a Knowledge Forum and a welcome reception.”
