Appointment Diary

  • Appointment Diary

    At AIME we recommend you purchase a diary in which Pre-Scheduled Appointments (PSA) are arranged with Hosted Buyers. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to secure appointments with highly qualified buyers who have defined business and networking objectives in mind. What’s more, our ‘mutual-match’ system ensures that appointments are matched based on both exhibitor and buyer preferences – so you’ll meet with buyers who have genuine interest in placing business with you.


    "I had the easiest time with the PSA selections and
    no self-selections required since BEV’s (Business Events Victoria) slots were full."

    Adeline Keh, Sales Executive
    Business Events Victoria

    How does it work?

    Prior to the show you’ll select Hosted Buyers you want to meet with, Hosted Buyers will do the same and our system will match according to both of your preferences. Once the match takes place, you'll then have the opportunity to request additional appointments in any remaining time slots through the Self-Scheduled Appointment tool (SSA's).

    What are the benefits?

    • Secure appointments with highly qualified Hosted Buyers who have proven business to place and budgets to spend.
    • The mutual match guarantees you’ll meet with buyers who have specific interest in your destination or product.
    • Increase the relevance of your appointments and increase your ROI.
    • View Hosted Buyers who have selected you as a preference and select them to increase your chance of a mutually matched appointment.

    *NEW* - 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.

    *NEW* - Trade Buyer Offering

    Pre-approved 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.
