ibtm america 2016 (www.ibtmamerica.com), taking place from June 15-17 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee, is set to debut it’s 100% mutual match business appointments design among an elite group of exhibitors and Corporate, Agency and Incentive Hosted Buyers.


 
Jaime McAuley, Event Director, ibtm america commented, “Our Hosted Buyer applications will go live early February, but for the first time this year we allowed Hosted Buyers to pre-register for ibtm america, and so far we’ve received applications from over 400 high-calibre buyers. We’ve also had over 100 exhibitors register for the event, which is not surprising considering that post-show feedback from ibtm america 2015 revealed a 95% satisfaction rate among exhibitors who felt our event platform worked for them.”
 


Corporate Hosted Buyers that have pre-registered for ibtm america 2016 will attend from companies such as Nature’s Way, Dell Inc., Metlife, Inc., Principal Financial Group, Tetra Tech, Inc. The Wall Street Journal, and Intel Corporation. Pre-registered Incentive/Agency Hosted Buyers will attend from companies such as American Express, Grass Roots, Meetings and Incentives Worldwide, Inc, and Peak Performance Distinctive. Association Hosted Buyers will attend from associations such as the American Association of Retired Persons, American Bar Association, California Alarm Association, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, American Public Human Services Association, Penn State University, and UC Berkeley.


 
All exhibitors and Hosted Buyers will be able to partake in 100% mutual match business appointments, which allows both parties to select who is relevant to their business needs and set up a diary of up to 30 appointments. ibtm america 2016 is the first event of it’s kind in the US to offer 100% mutual match business appointments.


 
Jaime McAuley, Event Director, ibtm america continued, “100% mutual match is a real game-changer for our attendees and definitely a draw for our exhibitors. Allowing exhibitors to request appointments with Hosted Buyers really puts them in the driver’s seat and gives them a real return on investment. The 100% mutual match system eliminates non-relevant meetings.”


 
New exhibitors confirmed to attend ibtm america 2016 include Cedar Rapids Convention and Visitors Bureau, Eau Palm Beach Resort, Fairmont Orchid- Hawaii, Oklahoma City Convention and Visitors Bureau, Social Tables, TripBuilder Media, and Visit Wichita. Returning exhibitors include British Virgin Islands Tourism, Conrad London St. James, Jamaica Tourist Board, Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, Live Nation Special Events, Marriott International Inc, Maui Jim Sunglasses, Station Casinos, and Vail Resorts Meeting & Events.
