Asia Pacific Incentives and Meetings Event (AIME), held in Melbourne on February 17–19, has announced the theme for its much-anticipated 2020 Knowledge Exchange – inspire communities to connect through authentic learning experiences and human-centred interactions.
AIME 2020 will see the program evolve from its developments in 2019, sharpening its focus on the fundamentals of relationship building in today’s hyper-connected world – and its power to drive positive change throughout the region.
“Business events are all about human interaction and so it makes absolute sense for us to challenge our visitors and exhibitors alike to connect and maximise the potential for business in different and exciting new ways. 2020 is all about AIME’s evolution, and we are placing people at the heart of our event to develop both professionally and personally,” said Matt Pearce, CEO, Talk2 Media & Events.
Appointed as the program’s content weaver, Holly Ransom, CEO of Emergent and globally renowned speaker and curator, is set to guide discussions with delegates on the core principles of connections and how technology can enhance them.
“The Asia Pacific is one of the world’s most diverse cultural regions, and connecting and understanding its neighbours has been one of the key driving forces in its economic success. I’m very excited to lead discussions on how technology has played a role in all this, but also on the importance of stripping back to the basics,” said Holly Ransom.
Open to both buyers and exhibitors, AIME 2020 will see bespoke experiences offered across all sectors of the industry. Furthermore, it marks the first year that associations will be able to participate in an invitation-only discussion with industry leaders on the topic.
Running 17–19 February, AIME is the first event to kick off the 2020 Business Events calendar and is held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
