IBTM launches first details on the IBTM World Virtual which will take place from 8 – 10 December 2020. Although this event was planned to be one of the first physical exhibitions after the corona-pandemic, they’ve now decided to shift to an online-virtual edition due to ongoing unpredictable travel restrictions.
So David Thompson, Event Director of IBTM World commented: „“While we’d all hoped we would be able to meet face-to-face in Barcelona, we’re very excited about what we have created with IBTM World Virtual. The online event will deliver not only the high quality business opportunities for which IBTM is renowned, but also a programme of content that will provide attendees with tangible learnings that they can apply to their business as we evolve and rebuild our industry.“ 
This results in the organization like normal exhibitions: The matchmaking system will organize one-to-one meetings between Buyers and Suppliers as a video call; ‚Walk-up‘ meetings at the booth can be held via chat or personal video call.
Next to meetings, content sessions like destination presentations, the Tech Watch Awards and other targeted content for event planners will be provided. 
Keynote speakers will be amongst others Pancho Campo, speaking about the future of events and his lessons learned from working with Barack Obama; Isabel Bardinet discussing the topic „going digital“; Mikael EK, whose session will cover „state oft he industry: unexpected trends for the future of meetings and events“ and many more.
EVINTRA will participate and contribute as media partner and exhibitor – make sure to book your meeting with us!
