We are counting the days, the final operations are in progress and we are all looking forward to Barcelona and the 23rd EIBTM. This year the team are focused on delivering more than 30 new features and events.
As you may have read, we are also increasing the opportunities to do business by introducing an additional pre-scheduled appointment upping the total to 7 which means we expect some 60,000 meetings to take place over the 3 days!
Recent research showed 47% of Hosted Buyers have annual meetings budgets of over $1m, so its good news that we are going to welcome a 48% increase in buyers from the UK this year as well as significant increases from Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Russia and Belgium. We intend delivering the very best environment for the meetings industry as we head towards the end of 2011, and if you want to keep up with all our news now and during the show don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
