Buyers Preference Selection is Now Open for AIME

Press Room > 2018

The trade show has announced the launch of its meetings software for the 2019 event, which will carefully match 32 guaranteed pre-scheduled appointments (PSAs) between buyers and exhibitors.

With meeting preferences opening earlier than ever before, the bespoke algorithm, designed for AIME in partnership with Centium Software, matches the preferences of buyers with the services and capabilities of exhibitors through the EventsAir® portal.

Once buyers’ registrations are reference checked and approved, they are able to begin their preference selection which includes a range of criteria questions spanning preferred destinations, capacity, product strengths, buyer types and budgets – all of which will then be used to match the most relevant and mutually beneficial meetings with AIME exhibitors.

Approved hosted buyers and confirmed exhibitors, will be given the opportunity to pre-connect via the buyer zone portal which opens in mid-January or through the AIME app. Both parties can then begin the exchange of relevant business information to ensure the most effective use of time at the event.

Each hosted buyer and exhibitor can expect to have 60 percent of their diary carefully filled with the first round of scheduled matching.  While 40 percent of the diary will be opened up to pre-registered trade buyers and media with all diary holders free, to organise appointments with AIME attendees they are specifically interested in meeting.

The technology will also extend into how appointments roll out on event day taking into consideration, the show’s floor plan and pre-empting travel time between each meeting. This new software also assures buyers that should they missed a meeting their appointment, will be rescheduled automatically.

AIME’s partnership with Centium Software is one of many new elements that are part of its refreshed event strategy, promising more measurable return on investment for exhibitors and buyers alike.
