The Amer­i­cas Meet­ings & Events Ex­hi­bi­tion (AIBTM), Reed Travel Ex­hi­bi­tions’ pre­miere provider for the US meet­ings and events in­dus­try, an­nounced to­day that it has more than 50 Hosted Buyer Group Co­or­di­na­tors com­mit­ted to AIBTM in Bal­ti­more, June 19-21, 2012. AIBTM 2012 is a three-day event, with one full day of ed­u­ca­tion and two days of ex­hi­bi­tions.

It al­ready has 25 per cent more Group Co­or­di­na­tors signed than for the whole of last year and are still in their pre­reg­is­tra­tion phase for the Hosted Buyer Pro­gram. Each AIBTM ex­hibitor is el­i­gi­ble to ap­ply to be a Group Co­or­di­na­tor. The pro­gramme em­pow­ers ex­hibitors to en­sure that the prospects they want to see are at AIBTM. Group Co­or­di­na­tors re­ceive the same VIP treat­ment as Hosted Buy­ers. They have the op­por­tu­nity to meet face-to-face with top clients through AIBTM’s on­line Pre-Sched­uled Ap­point­ment sys­tem and they en­joy com­pli­men­tary travel and ac­com­mo­da­tions when bring­ing a qual­i­fied group of 10 or more. Among the AIBTM Hosted Buyer Group Co­or­di­na­tors con­firmed for AIBTM 2012 in­clude key hote­liers like Hil­ton, Hy­att, In­ter­Con­ti­nen­tal Ho­tels Group (IHG), Mar­riott, Melia Ho­tels In­ter­na­tional, Shangri-La Ho­tels and Re­sorts, Sof­i­tel Lux­ury Ho­tels and Choice Ho­tels In­ter­na­tional. Ma­jor U.S. mar­ket CVB’s such as the New Or­leans Con­ven­tion and Vis­i­tors Bureau, Meet Washington State (for­merly Seat­tle CVB) and Visit Or­lando will also bring hosted buy­ers.

Space is still avail­able and AIBTM is ac­tively ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for Hosted Buyer Group Co­or­di­na­tors. On­line ap­pli­ca­tions will be live later this month.
