Bangkok Convention Center, Central World, Bangkok, Thailand.
Premier International MICE Event and the only Double Bill Event in Asia-Pacific
Incentive Travel & Conventions, Meetings Asia (IT&CMA) and Corporate Travel World (CTW) Asia-Pacific is Asia-Pacific’s Only Doublebill Event in MICE and Corporate Travel. Both events have been co-locating since 2004, offering its delegates an unparalleled platform to do business, learn and network with industry players from around the region and beyond. This year 2019 will see the 27th and 22nd installment of IT&CMA and CTW Asia-Pacific respectively.
“The encouraging space expansion of returning exhibitors attest to continued confidence that IT&CM Asia and CTW Asia-Pacific delivers across all fronts, internationally and locally. As the show continues to evolve, we progressively put in our best to cater to the ever-changing needs of our suppliers and buyers.” Darren Ng, MD, TTG Asia Media.
The new 2019 highlights feature a re-designed programme with proven engagement activities aimed at fostering new avenues of lead generation between suppliers and buyers beyond one-on-one business appointments.
Following a successful roll-out during the IT&CMA China event earlier this March, new initiatives such as Brand Showcase Presentations, Exhibition Walkabouts and
Meet-The-Corporates. About 20 brands have chosen these activities to supplement their business appointments and enhance their outreach to niche buyer segments during the upcoming show. Conducted in a speed-dating format, up to 12 IT&CM Asia exhibitors like Dubai Business Events have opted to meet and connect with attending CTW corporate travel/procurement professionals over 2 x 1 hour sessions over 2 days.
Brand Showcase Presentations: For the first time, 10 brands including Dubai Business Events, Japan by JTB, Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute, Royal Orchid Holidays, Taiwan, Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), Thai MICE Cities, will be sharing their latest highlights and developments first-hand at these 20-minute sessions open to MICE, Association and Corporate buyers and media.
Exhibition Walkabouts: Targeting association buyers and media, up to 10 featured destinations comprising India Tourism, JNTO, TCEB and more will get to make quick introductions and exchanges with these sought-after delegates at their own pavilions / booths during these 4 x 1- hour guided sessions over 2 days.
Another newly added segment to the show this year is Say Hi to Everyone. Formatted as an interactive ice-breaker and helmed by MICE Strategist and Hospitality Consultant Mr. David Barrett, this session allows all delegates to get a sense of who’s who at this year’s show and to identify profiles they would like to meet across both events, kick-starting connections before business days begin.
In line with the strong take-up of new initiatives, more brands have also opted for captive engagement sessions this year with an extensive line-up of sponsored events to date. TCEB will be presenting a “Corporate Exchange, Exclusively Thailand” networking mirroring the new “Meet-The-Corporates” format, featuring up to 48 Thai suppliers, and attended solely by corporate buyers over 2 days.
“Our new branding “Thailand Redefine Your Business Events” inspires us to find every window of opportunity to create value and enhance return on investment and return on time for MICE stakeholders. Our partnership with IT&CMA in launching Corporate Exchange, Exclusively Thailand initiative is a perfect match with our new branding. We are excited to see the Thai suppliers and Corporate Travel Managers leverage on this new initiative and deepen their interaction in an exclusive setting” said Mrs. Nichapa Yoswee, Senior Vice President – Business of Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau.
As strategic partner, TCEB will continue to host the perennially anticipated Opening Ceremony and Welcome Dinner, pre-show city tours of Bangkok and post-show tours to Ayutthaya and Khao Lak.
Meanwhile on the CTW Asia-Pacific front, sponsor CWT will be fronting the light-hearted interactive session for all CTW delegates over coffee and tea in a corporate networking exclusive.
