What's New for 2018

  • What's New for 2018

    Team AIME has listened to it's valued exhibitors and attendees and following survey results and valuable feedback from last year’s show, we are implementing significant enhancements and new initiatives for AIME 2018. These include multiple deliverables with the overarching objective of increasing your ROI.

  • New Hosted Buyer Acquisition Scheme

    For the time, AIME is implementing an 'invitation led' Hosted Buyer approval process to ensure exhibitors meet and do business with high-quality invitation only candidates, who meet a serise of criteria, and new fresh buyers to the show. Pre-approved Hosted Buyer candidates will receive an invitation to attend AIME from either our team of experts, or one of our approved event partners.

The new offerings allow us to create bespoke packages for you whether digital, print or on-site to enhance brand awareness tailored to your objectives. For example, utilising remarketing to convert AIME visitors into your customers. Advertising will be specifically designed to drive traffic to your exhibitor profile and establish recognition before the event.

  • New "AIME First Timers" Exhibition Area

    Our new "AIME First Timers" exhibition area showcases a variety of new product offerings and new industry suppliers from around the world. Join the AIME community with an all-inclusive package that removes the logistic hassel of exhibiting, allowing you to focus on your business, appointments, knowledge and networking.

    Longer Appointment Times

    We have increased appointment times to 20 minutes with 10 minutes break between appointments. This allows exhibitors and Hosted Buyers to form stronger connections and decrease the number of no-shows and late appointments.

  • Hosted Buyer Program

    Adapting to the feedback and needs of our Hosted Buyer community, we have modified the Hosted Buyer program for 2018 with reduction in compulsory attendance outside of the show days, allowing buyers to gain the most out of their AIME experience and time away from the office.

    New Trade Buyer Offering

    Trade Buyers now have the option of booking appointments through our Self-Select Appointment tools (SSA’s) with exhibitors without attending the full 4-day Hosted Buyer Program. This allows exhibitors access to a new audience of high quailty buyers who have been time-poor in previous year's to commit to the Hosted Buyer Program.
