  • About the Knowledge Programme

    Inspiration comes in many forms and our Knowledge Programme offers just that. Our objective is to inspire, engage and educate our attendees on the hottest topics and latest industry trends in a range of innovative learning formats.

    To deliver on these objectives, we’re looking for thought leaders, educators and experts who are confident speaking in front of an audience, and that they have relevant content that they can share. 

    Please note that IBTM do not simply sell speaking slots – all presentations need to be insightful and educational to be considered part of the Knowledge Programme.
    If you would like to present your destination, solutions or other offerings to our delegates, you are welcome to attend as an exhibitor, where you can run a presentation from your stand.

    If however, you think you're what we're looking for, fill in the form below and our conference team will get back to you.
