The organisers of the Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME) are promising a lively show this week with interactive technology, virtual reality, fashion, immersive cultural delights, competitions and games for all to experience.

They are promising a range of interactive and new features on the show floor including a system that blends human connections and technology via a touch-screen, video-based service platform to welcome delegates as they arrive at the expo while a fully automated Selfiebot, a six-foot robot, will interact with attendees and roam the show floor snapping selfies.

Courtesy of Rentertainment, everyone can be a part of the show at AIME Central, with attendees invited to help complete a giant picture-by-numbers mosaic wall, consisting of 1944 social media images that will be taken during AIME.

Info Salons will be presenting their new ‘biometric’ facial recognition registration system. The innovative system uses facial recognition to validate identifications, can streamline badge production for events and will be available on the show floor for delegates to check out and test.

AIME exhibitors will showcase their latest technologies, newest experiences and most unique thrills for everyone heading to Melbourne. The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) stand will give attendees a sensory experience using Facebook Spaces Virtual Reality. The immersive technology will enable AIME guests to tour MCEC’s new expansion in high definition and visualise their own event in the space.

The Northern Territory Convention Bureau (NTCB) stand will immerse attendees with culinary delights from the top end, while Matt Wright from the Wild Australia series – hot off his G’Day USA Tour – will be on hand to share the magic of the Northern Territory.

Catherine Manuell Design will showcase a collection of unique travel accessories and luggage, with ranges created from female Aboriginal artist’s paintings and local Melbourne artist Kate Hudson; inspiring gift ideas for delegates and events.

Angela Sciacca, project manager of AIME, said that the events community loves to get involved and experience everything first hand; this year AIME incorporates experiences with high-quality business appointments.
