Support for IBTM Asia Pacific
IBTM partners SACEOS' SMF
IBTM, part of Reed Travel Exhibitions, has entered a letter of agreement to partner the renowned Asia-Pacific MICE industry business conference SMF (Singapore MICE Forum) with its newest Business Event, IBTM Asia Pacific. This "SMF x IBTM Asia Pacific" initiative comes at the back of the recent agreement between Singapore Tourism Board and IBTM Asia Pacific signed at the opening day of IBTM World 2019 in Barcelona. With the combined support of the Singapore Tourism Board and SACEOS, IBTM Asia Pacific is poised to become the leading trade event for the MICE Industry in the region. Running in partnership with SACEOS (Singapore Association of Convention and Exhibition Organisers and Suppliers) – the national trade association for meetings, incentives, conferences, exhibitions and events in Singapore – SMF2020 will take place over one and a half days at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre on April 6, 2020, followed by IBTM Asia Pacific from April 7 to 8, 2020. Nick Pilbeam, divisional director, Reed Travel Exhibitions, commented: "We know from our extensive research prior to launching IBTM Asia Pacific, that there's a real appetite for education in the Asia Pacific region and we're delighted that we're going to be delivering on that through our partnership with SACEOS. SMF 2020 will provide an inspiring and educational kick-off to our inaugural event and I'm looking forward to announcing more details in due course."
