In a partnership that has seen AIME take on a naming rights partner for its hosted buyer lounge for the first time since AIME began in 1993, the Accor Hosted Buyer Lounge has been carefully designed to demonstrate Accor’s exceptional offerings for meeting and events.
“With 400 hotels in the Pacific region such as Sofitel, Pullman, Novotel and MGallery, and more than 5,300 hotels worldwide, partnering with AIME 2023 is a great opportunity for Accor,” said Sarah Derry, Accor Pacific’s CEO.
“This partnership will enable us to show buyers how Accor is changing the world of work through seamless and speedy booking experiences, with a convenient website for event organisers that has innovative booking tools such as the net Zero Carbon Tool and the ALL – Accor Live Limitless Meeting Planner loyalty programme, which rewards event organisers with points on every event. We will also demonstrate the quality of our hotels and how highly we value our guests.”
AIME 2023 will be attended by more than 400 hosted buyers, 2,000 visitor buyers and over 300 exhibitors including our Asia Pacific neighbours and representatives from the Middle East, US and Europe.
Silke Calder, AIME’s event director, said they are thrilled to announce Accor as its naming rights partner for the Hosted Buyer Lounge.
“Our event planners already receive the full VIP treatment with inclusive travel, invitations to exclusive events and now with this new partnership, they will also receive the first-class hospitality at AIME for which Accor is renowned,” she said.
AIME 2023 will be held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 13–15 February.
