  • THE IBTM WORLD VIRTUAL HOSTED BUYER PROGRAMME

    IBTM World has gone virtual to ensure you stay connected with leading industry suppliers, venues and destinations from around the globe.

    If you’re a senior-level decision-maker in your company and are looking to meet with suppliers to help you plan, organise and run future or rescheduled events, you could qualify for our Hosted Buyer Programme at IBTM World Virtual.

    We’re bringing you the IBTM experience direct to your screen.

    Choose your own appointments

    Our virtual matchmaking system will offer you recommendations of which suppliers fit your preferences, you’ll be able to book in appointments with those suppliers, and receive requests from suppliers who want to do business with you.

    Exclusive content

    As a Hosted Buyer, you’ll receive access to exclusive industry insights and trends from IBTM Inspire – a tailored knowledge programme designed solely for Association, Corporate and Agency event planners – which will take place on Day 3 of IBTM World Virtual (10 December 2020).

    As well as that, there’s also a large variety of great content we’ll be sharing across the three days, from IBTM Accelerate’s tech and innovation focus to IBTM TV’s live keynote sessions.

    As a Hosted Buyer, you’ll need to organise 10 appointments with suppliers during IBTM World Virtual but, to put it in perspective, that’s only about 3 hours so you’ll have more than enough time to explore the rest of the platform.
