AIME launches Associations Round Table

Asia Pacific Incentives and Meetings Event (AIME) has announced a new initiative called the Associations Round Table.

The invitation-only roundtable will connect event professionals in the association sector with discussions and workshops. It will take place over half a day during the Knowledge Programme.

AIME will take place from 17-19 February 2020 in the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Jay Martens, Event Director of Talk2 Media and Events, said, “In today’s hyperconnected digital world, our industry has, and will, face challenges. The 2020 Knowledge Program is focused on how we approach these, which is why our theme is all about the power of human connections.

“The Associations Round Table will link key players in the industry to not only discuss these challenges, but also to reinvent and redefine the way they communicate and co-operate.

“Traditionally, associations worked independently, focused exclusively on member’s needs. Today, they face common challenges that unites them all. We want them to leave AIME with models that can be applied to their associations in their regions.”

MCB CEO Julia Swanson added: “We are thrilled to be a part of the first-ever Associations Round Table at AIME – an extraordinary testament to the event’s development and understanding of what the industry needs.

“There are not many business events so invested in the development of strong networks and communities, and we are very excited to help grow and support AIME in its immeasurable influence across the Asia Pacific region.”
