YOUR MEETINGS

The primary function of AIME is to connect the right buyers with the right exhibitors.

The AIME Hosted Buyers are committed to attending 32 pre-scheduled appointments. Dedicated, carefully matched appointments that will deliver potential commerce with every meeting.

 

In 2019 AIME introduced sophisticated software that seamlessly matches buyers’ needs, desired destinations and budgets against exhibitors’ unique products, services and capacity.

 

Buyers and exhibitors are able to set their meetings preferences so that we could align the needs of the Buyers against the services and destinations of the Exhibitors. All contracted Hosted Buyers had 60% of their diaries allocated with the matched appointments. Once the diaries were opened, buyers had the freedom to set the rest of their diaries with select exhibitors, destinations and media.

 

Contact details for each meeting are shared, so you can start building your business relationships early and get down to business when you meet at AIME.
