The Americas Meetings & Events Exhibition (AIBTM) has doubled the number of sessions that will be delivered to the meetings industry in conjunction with leading associations, as part of AIBTM’s Americas Meetings Week. The three-day networking event, held June 19 – 21 in Baltimore will feature a full day of education, followed by two days of exhibitions.
AIBTM’s educational program will feature 30 concurrent sessions over the course of the event, delivering discussions of industry topics, updates on global economic challenges, inspiration through personal motivational anecdotes, discussions on social media implications and an investigation into the positive impact of meetings.
Alexander Blass, an internationally acclaimed American innovator and entrepreneur will kick off AIBTM’s Education Day with his keynote session: ‘Priceless Strategies from an Innovator – How to thrive in challenging times’. Blass will share his passion, vision, life and business experiences while reflecting on the continuing global economic challenges, how they may impact the meetings industry and what implications this may hold for business leaders in the future.
Digital innovation will also be a key component in this year’s program. Led by digital event specialist Michael Doyle, Executive Director of the Virtual Edge Institute, the VEI’s track will feature two sessions during AIBTM’s Education Day. AIBTM Education Day will also feature a series of tracks covering topics such as “Event Productivity and the Power of Connection” and “Transforming Teams into Customer Care Crusaders” from which attendees can learn how to make the most out of meetings and events as well as effective time management tips from the experts of the industry.
