After just two years in Baltimore, AIBTM, the Americas Meetings & Events Exhibition, has announced the show will be moving. In 2013 AIBTM will be held in Chicago, followed by Orlando in 2014.
Next year, AIBTM’s appointments, education,, and networking events will be at McCormick Place, June 11–13. In 2014, the meeting will rotate to the Orange County Convention Center, June 10–12.
The second annual event runs June 19–21 at the Baltimore Convention Center, and organizers are aiming for 20,000 pre-scheduled, on-site appointments. That number would be a big jump over the augural event, which drew about 1,550 buyers and 11,200 appointments.
AIBTM is one of five events in Reed Travel Exhibitions’ meetings, events and business travel portfolio, which includes EIBTM in Frankfurt, Germany.
