IBTM Americas has witnessed strong international and domestic exhibitor sales ahead of its 2019 edition, taking place from May 29-30 at Centre Citibanamex in Mexico City.
More than 80 domestic and international exhibitors are confirmed, with a strong mix of returning and new customers, such as Thomas Cook, Hilton, Melia Hotels International, Radisson Hotel Group, Hard Rock Hotels (RCD HotelS), Visit Jamaica and more.
Show director, IBTM Americas, David Hidalgo stated: “We have ambitious targets to grow the event this year, so we’re delighted to be performing so well against our targets, especially in light of the strategic change in dates for the event which effectively shortened this year’s timeline by over three months.
“We’re particularly focused this year on growing our international exhibitor base, and we already have an increase in the number of Asia Pacific exhibitors this year, and some North American exhibitors extending their stand size. We are looking forward to welcoming all our customers to what is renowned for being an extremely productive and, importantly, fun event set against the colourful backdrop of Mexico City,” he concluded.
As well as two days of pre-arranged one-to-one business meetings, visitors can make the most of a range of networking events and targeted education sessions, including MPI academic day; a specialised programme to show the latest innovations applied to the MICE and business travel industry, as well as trends to inspire future events; an event production forum; an event marketing congress; a wedding congress; a pharma congress; and a sustainable events interactive forum, amongst others.
