WCB at EIBTM 2009

Share |

On 1-3rd December, the Global Meetings & Incentive Exhibition EIBTM, one of the most important trade shows for the international meeting industry, has revisited the city of Barcelona. The event has attracted almost 3 300 exhibitors from 92 countries, that could participate in 30 + educational sessions within EIBTM’s professional education programme and 5 official business networks.

Warsaw exhibited at the Polish national stand. Warsaw Convention Bureau has again joined forces with Warsaw Destination Alliance in our marketing activities to enhance Warsaw’s appeal as an attractive destination for conventions, meetings and incentives.

Our stand attracted the largest number of meeting planners from the British, German and French market. Interestingly, we are receiving more and more requests from farther destinations such as USA and Mexico. During the three busy days we have made many valuable contacts, which will certainly intensify our cooperation with local service providers. Warsaw shared the Polish stand with the representatives of city convention bureaux from Cracow, Katowice and Gdańsk as well as with representatives of Polish service providers.

This year’s edition again has had a very high attendance. Without doubt, a record number of Hosted Buyers – 3,791 up 2% on the previous year and 4% rise of pre-scheduled meetings can be considered as the most important achievements of EIBTM’09.
