A new Start-Up Pavilion has been created at ibtm world 2017 where tech and experiential start-up companies can exhibit.

Companies eligible to exhibit in the Start-Up Pavilion must be two years or younger, with five or fewer full-time employees, with an annual turnover of less than €500k (£441k). As part of the exhibiting package, they will get their own personalised diary, with the opportunity to arrange pre-scheduled appointments with high-profile meetings and events planners interested in meeting technology providers.

James Morgan, founder of Event Tech Lab, said: “With so many tech companies entering the industry, it’s fantastic that ibtm world is offering a platform for smaller, younger companies to showcase their ideas and how they’ve put them into action.

“The exposure that start-up technology companies can gain from exhibiting at this international event is unparalleled. The advantages of an international shop window, combined with the connections they can make and the potential business they could come away with proves that it’s an unmissable event.”

Kerry Prince, portfolio director at ibtm events, said: “For the past 30 years our focus has always been and continues to be on providing our customers with the best possible experience, which includes access to the latest and most exciting innovations in the industry. The Start-Up Pavilion is not only a cost-effective opportunity for younger companies to gain exposure in the industry but also a real draw for our Hosted Buyers and trade visitors looking to experience and invest in the very latest event technology.

The three-day event takes place from 28 – 30 November at Fira Gran Via Barcelona.
