The Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME) Welcome Event is back for its 25th year with tickets for $150 now on sale.

The Welcome Event on February 20, presented by Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB), will take place at Carousel by food&desire, located at the water’s edge of Albert Park Lake.

It is expected to uncover the best of Creative Victoria, to showcase the breadth and depth of the state’s thriving creative industries.

Guests will enjoy extensive networking opportunities as well as pop-up entertainment that nods to the city’s creative culture and arts including traditional and contemporary dance, theatre, visual and performing arts.

Karen Bolinger, Chief Executive Officer, Melbourne Convention Bureau said the AIME Welcome Event will be a celebration of the business events industry.

“The AIME Welcome Event is one of the only events in the Asia-Pacific region that brings the global business events industry together. As we celebrate 25 years of AIME it provides us with an opportunity to showcase the best of our city, and in 2017 we chose our creative industries.

“This year’s event will enable attendees to revel in the imaginative creative scene spanning arts, culture, screen and design, that our city is so renowned for,” Ms Bolinger said.

After a competitive tender process MCB has engaged one of Melbourne’s most enthusiastic and creative event management companies, Solution Entertainment.

The boutique agency will be producing the AIME Welcome Event for the first time and were selected because of their energy and visionary approach, as well as understanding of the unique needs of the event and attendees that are looking to network while also being inspired and entertained.

“We’re excited that Melbourne Convention Bureau has partnered with Solution Entertainment to deliver one of the most important events of the year for the business events industry. With fresh eyes and contemporary approach we anticipate the event will exceed expectations,” Brad Hampel, Director, Solution Entertainment said.
