IT&CMA 2010 sees returning exhibitors pledging substantial increase in their participation. National Convention and Exhibition Bureaus such as Thailand, Brunei Indonesia, Seoul and Korea have committed to larger floor spaces of 20% to 50%.
“The increased participation affirms Asia-Pacific’s desire to further expand the MICE industry in Asia. Choosing IT&CMA is testimony of their confidence that the event can deliver superior business prospects,” acknowledges Darren Ng, managing director of TTG Asia Media, the organiser of IT&CMA and CTW 2010. With some five months to the event in October 5 to 7, IT&CMA 2010 has sold more than 90% of its exhibition space.
Confidence in the show remains buoyant despite the recent challenges in Bangkok. “The safety and welfare of our delegates are our utmost priority. As normalcy returns to Thailand we are confident that the event will be staged with minimal disruption,” assures Darren Ng. Long-standing partner Thailand Convention and Exhibitions Bureau (TCEP) have also re-affirmed their support and commitment to making IT&CMA and CTW 2010 a success.
The team remains positive that industry demand will spur IT&CMA and CTW 2010 to out perform last year’s sales and delegate numbers. In addition to exhibitor bookings, the organisers have received more than 500 applications from interested buyers, corporate travel managers and media to date. These numbers are set to increase as marketing efforts heighten in the run-up to the event.
