New date for AIME as organisers opt for consistency


The next Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME) will be held in February - not March as previously announced. Organisers Reed Travel Exhibitions (RTE) said the Australia-based show would take place 26 – 27 February, 2013.


Karen Bolinger, CEO of the Melbourne Convention + Visitors Bureau (MCVB), which owns AIME said: "Over the last two decades, AIME has traditionally been held in February, so we are delighted that the revised dates will ensure the show is consistent with previous years."


The revision was only possible when exhibition space at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) became available.


Sally de Swart, RTE's director for AIME, said: "February best suits the industry diary and allows AIME to remain the first meetings and incentives event on the year's calendar, so we're really happy with the revised dates for the 2013 show."


AIME 2013 will bring together exhibitors, hosted buyers and visitors from the meetings and incentives industry from around the world to network and do business. Already, 50 per cent of the floor space is committed.
