Melbourne, 29th June: Beginning in 2019, the Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME) will have a new organising company. Melbourne-based Talk2 Media and Events has been appointed as the new organiser of AIME. The announcement was made at the Melbourne Convention Bureau’s (MCB) annual Partner Outlook Event.
Founded in last year, Talk2 Media and Events is led by Diversified’s former International Director, Matt Pearce and Finance Director, Steve Malbourne. The company has a staff of about 30 based in Melbourne.
AIME provides a platform for industry players organising business travel, meetings, incentives and events. Prior to the appointment of Talk2 Media and Events, Reed Exhibitions managed the event for the past 15 years.
Matt Pearce, CEO of Talk2 Media and Event, stated, “AIME is the most important international event of its kind in Asia-Pacific, trusted with providing the stage on which the business events community can connect and create business opportunities. We’re excited to explore how we can reimagine AIME so that it continues to foster connections, inspire new ideas and drive business outcomes for both visitors and exhibitors.”
