AIME 2019 announces changes to ensure long-term success of the event

Incoming organiser for AIME 2019, Talk2 Media & Events (Talk2 ME) announced a series of changes the new team are planning for the 2019 event to reflect the industry research the company has undertaken since being awarded the management contract.

The changes announced today include specific focus on the hosted buyer program to ensure it can deliver quality, quantity and a good geographic split of buyers from around the Asia-Pacific region. Talk2 ME has identified the number of buyers, by industry and geography, that it intends to bring to the event next year. The hosted buyer program is central to the success of the event and the team will be
working immediately post AIME 2018 to ensure we encourage the right buyers to attend AIME 2019.

Change will also be implemented within the education offering at the event, expanding the range of education offered to include both individual and industry development across the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the event. The significant change will be that the education will be offered to all attendees, across all 3 days. Pearce noted that they were in discussion with a number of recognised
industry associations, both locally and internationally, to provide meaningful education across a broad range of subjects. Another major initiative announced was the introduction of additional networking opportunities in 2019. These include networking sessions on the show floor each day of the event as well as a new offering on the Tuesday evening.
