EIBTM Barcelona

Now in its 25th year, 27-28-29 November are the dates for the annual EIBTM, Europe’s major meetings, incentives and events gathering.  The venue once again is Barcelona’s massive 42,000sq m Hall 3 of the FIRA exhibition complex.

EIBTM, which pioneered the now popular ‘hosted buyers’ concept, will welcome some 15,000 travel experts from all over the world, supported by 3,000 exhibitors.

Reed Exhibitions Ltd, the show owners, has initiated this year a touring summit dedicated to offering a personal, bespoke service to stakeholders and meeting the growing demand for education and training in the meetings industry.  The first of this new series of branded ‘EIBTM Talks’ is ‘EIBTM Talks Technology’, which will be taking place in Gdansk (Poland) on 28 August and will then take place in Belgrade (Serbia) on 30 August followed by further presentation during September at Beijing, Bangkok, Las Vegas, San Juan (Puerto Rico) and Chicago.

Anna Gorska, CEO, Gdansk Convention Bureau, commented: “The joint project with EIBTM is not only a great honour for us but also a huge opportunity.  Technology standards within the industry are advancing at a fast pace.  We’re more than happy that EIBTM has noticed our activities and is willing to support them and I’m sure the EIBTM Talks Technology workshop will be a great educational event”. www.firabcn.es www.eibtm.com
