The 2013 edition of the Americas Incentive, Business Travel & Meetings Exhibition (AIBTM) will feature more than 50 first-time exhibitors, including new participants from the travel, hospitality, destination, incentives and meetings sectors, organizer Reed Travel Exhibitions (RTE) reported yesterday.

“The addition of over 50 new exhibitors to AIBTM clearly illustrates the strong interest in AIBTM that’s been building over the past few months,” says AIBTM Exhibition Director Michael Lyons. “We are confident attendees will leave the three-day show with new business connections and a desire to return in 2014.”

Among the new exhibitors at AIBTM 2013 are:

• United Airlines
• Savoya Global Chauffeured Services
• Visit Savannah
• Travizon Meeting Management
• Sonesta Collection
• The Breakers
• Monte Carlo SBM-Hotels & Casinos
• Detroit Metro CVB
• Sustainable Travel/Namibia Tourism Board
• Poken
• Tropicana Las Vegas
• Sedona Chamber of Commerce
• Monaco Government & Tourist Convention Authority
• Park City CVB
• Jordan Tourism Board
• Malaga CVB
• Sun Country Airlines

“This is the first year that Sedona will attend AIBTM,” says Susan Boehnstedt, director of sales for the Sedona Chamber of Commerce in Sedona, Ariz. “In 2013, Sedona has enjoyed increased interest from planners interested in smaller venues. We thought AIBTM would be the perfect place to spread the word with national meeting planners.”

AIBTM 2013 will take place June 11-13 in Chicago. For more information, visit www.aibtm.com.
