  • History of the show

    This event has a strong and successful 30 year history as the leading exhibition for the global meetings, incentives, conferences and events industry, starting out in 1988 in Geneva, Switzerland.

    The first edition of the event featured 450 exhibitors from 52 countries and the Hosted Buyer Programme was launched to the market. EIBTM was acquired by Reed Travel Exhibitions, part of the Reed Elsevier Group in 2000 and moved to Barcelona in 2004.
