AIME partners with Delegate Connect to power online platform

Delegate Connect will partner with Asia Pacific Incentives and Meetings Event (AIME) to power its online platforming 2021.

As part of the new appointment, the Melbourne-based company will launch an innovative meetings algorithm, to match connections between buyers and exhibitors from all over the globe.

Through its custom functionality, meetings will match through a series of criteria – including business objectives, industry requirements, budgets and region – which will evaluate and summarise an overall percentage rating of each matched meeting.

“We understand the importance of delivering AIME as the industry’s first successful hybrid event,” said Silke Calder, AIME’s event director.

“While our dedicated team are experts in the business of creating meaningful connections, we needed to partner with a tech platform that could seamlessly host the virtual experience for delegates unable to visit Melbourne due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.

“After meeting with many potential partners, the team at Delegate Connect were unparalleled in their understanding of how an event experience should live online. And, after seeing how far the virtual platform has come since the partnership began, we cannot wait to introduce it to our community.”

Delegate Connect managing director Jordan Walsh said they were looking forward to playing a role in the rebuild and revival of the business events and tourism industry around the world.

“The launch of our custom developed algorithm is very exciting, and its capabilities stretch further than the online space, also measuring the engagement of onsite meetings via a rating and review system,” Walsh said.

“Outside of matching business connections, the platform also ensures that users will have an incredibly engaging experience and receive ROI in networking, social events and the much-anticipated Knowledge Program.”
