IBTM Events, a global organiser of B2B events for the MICE space and part of REED Travel Exhibitions, has announced the launch of IBTM Wired, a global online event and a permanent addition to its calendar. The inaugural edition will be hosted from 28 June 2021 to 1 July 2021 on an event platform built by Sector Global, and will be open 24 hours on all days.
On each of the four days, attendees will get insights into a region through industry outlook and expert opinions, to help discover new opportunities, expand focus areas and get the latest on each region’s recovery.
Asia Pacific will be in focus on 28 June, for which IBTM has partnered with SACEOS (Singapore Association for Convention & Exhibition Organisers & Suppliers). SMF X IBTM Wired will see the 2021 hybrid Singapore MICE Forum (SMF) integrated into the programme for IBTM Wired.
On 29 June, the Americas will take centre stage focused on delivering quality experiences and premium service. The MEA region will be in the spotlight the next day while Europe- centric deliberations will close the event on 1 July. Organisers promise one-to-one business meetings, networking and live and on-demand education sessions.
Michael Jones, Event Manager, IBTM, said, “While there’s huge demand for face-to-face events and we look forward to their return, it’s clear that there is a long-term place for high-quality online meetings. IBTM Wired will tap into the desire for year-round connections and will be a valuable and easily accessible touchpoint for existing and new customers from all over the globe who are looking to do business and network with their peers.”
“IBTM Wired will use the same intuitive purpose-built platform as our successful IBTM World Virtual 2020. The platform delivers an industry-leading experience for customers, delivering for them unrivalled business opportunities with a global network of event planners, destinations and suppliers in a cost-effective and time-efficient way,” he added.
