GIBTM, the leading Incentive, Business Travel and Meetings Exhibition in the Middle East, is preparing for major business with industry buyers from top global technology, financial, agency, corporate and association companies signed up to attend the event. The event takes place annually at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from Mar. 24-26 this year.
Major names accepted for the popular Hosted Buyer program include Kuoni Events, TE Connectivity, UHY International, Medicongress, Mary Kay, HelmsBriscoe, FEI Company, China International Medicine Exchange Association International Service Center, Contendam and Portigon Financial Services.
Out of last year’s 251 GIBTM attendees, about 168 placed orders of more than US $650,000 . The show has extended the program due to the increased interest of both buyers and exhibitors. Over 300 buyers are expected to take part in more than 8,500 pre-scheduled appointments.
Regional and international suppliers will have the opportunity to connect with buyers and expose their products through face-to-face meetings. Exhibitors will be able to receive strategic information while making a name for themselves in the meetings and events industry.
Research from last year’s show determined the top ten countries for outbound business from the Middle East to be Turkey, Spain, France, Malaysia, India, UK, Indonesia, Philippines, U.S. and South Africa.
