Last week, Melbourne Showgrounds representatives, Meghann and James, were given the opportunity to host a booth at the 30th Asia Pacific Incentives and Meetings Event (AIME) to promote all things Melbourne Showgrounds.
AIME is the leading trade event for the meetings and event industry in the Asia Pacific region, bringing together international and local event planners and connecting them with the best destinations, venues and event suppliers from around the world.
The Melbourne Showgrounds’ Sales team attended the event from 14-15 February at Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. Over two days full of meetings with event professionals from across APAC, the team were able to talk all about the Melbourne Showgrounds, Melbourne Royal Show, Victoria Pavilion and the F&B Awards programmes – and handed out plenty of curated showbags while they were at it.
‘It was great to connect with so many fantastic meetings and events professionals, spreading the word about our amazing spaces here – particularly being able to highlight our premier space the Victoria Pavilion,’ said James Gilham, Melbourne Showgrounds’ Sales & Sponsorship Manager.
Meghann Lambert, Showgrounds Sale Specialist also found the event to be a great experience, ‘as the ‘cultivators of happiness’ it was wonderful to see everyone’s smiling faces when chatting about our iconic venue…or maybe it was the memories stirred by our Bertie Beetles!’
