Today, the International Association of Exhibitions and Events™ (IAEE) announces a partnership with CIBTM, the China Incentive, Business Travel & Meetings Exhibition (www.cibtm.com) to host qualified exhibition organisers at its event 2-4 September 2013, in Beijing, China and co-produce education content at the event.

IAEE President and CEO David DuBois, CMP, CAE, FASAE, CTA, said, “In an ongoing effort to embrace new partners in collaborative efforts, we are very excited to work with CIBTM on this strategic initiative and increase awareness about IAEE in Asia. Our priority is to provide new, global opportunities for our members so they can maximise their potential for success.”

To effectively engage attendees at CIBTM, IAEE will host education sessions in the show’s Learning Theatre, which will focus on expertise and best practices for the exhibitions and events industry. Attendees will have an additional chance to get a deeper understanding of the exhibitions and events industry when DuBois participates on an educational panel during the programme.
