EIBTM celebrating its 25th anniversary this year will have the largest number of technology exhibitors since the Technology Village was launched in 2003.
Stephane Doutriaux, Founder & CEO, Poken who has exhibited since 2010 commented, “Our experience at EIBTM has always been tremendous. It’s a successful show for us to expand our international presence and the contacts that we make are always very promising. The Technology Village gathers a great mix of people and companies who are bringing real innovation to the event industry. We wish EIBTM a Happy 25th anniversary and look forward to this upcoming edition!“
In addition to the many exhibitors who have benefited from the return on investment that the Technology Village has provided for business, EIBTM has confirmed that there will be 17 new exhibitors participating including Twoppy, Sandsteps, Giumelli, Event Mobi, Eventilo.com, Magic Box, Evenium, Corporate Activities and Events, Artlab, Magency, Urban Gaming, Superevent, Turning Technologies, Soft for You, Idiliq and Magrada.
This year’s winner of the EIBTM Technology Watch award, bXb Online will also take their place within the Village as the prize for their win included a stand.
Tony Lorenz, Founder, bXb Online commented, “EIBTM, and the greater IBTM series of events, has been an increasing driving force in our industry for 25 years. So EIBTM’s recognition of our work underway at bXb Online is especially important and appreciated.
More broadly, the pace of adoption of innovative technology in our industry is accelerating. Business consumers demand a more responsive pace of adoption by event owners. EIBTM is a platform for the industry that enables smart and informed decisions by thousands of stakeholders in our industry”.
Graeme Barnett, Reed Travel Exhibitions, EIBTM Event Director commented, “The growth of this dedicated area is a direct result of the growth in technology products and services for the industry. Some 78% of Hosted Buyers from last year confirmed that it’s a priority for them in their appointment’s diary as they want to keep up to date with what’s new and current trends”.
