Marvel Stadium will play host to the highly anticipated Asia Pacific Incentives and Meetings Event (AIME) Welcome Event on February 13, with Peter Jones Special Events responsible for the evening designed to bring the business events industry together in celebration of AIME’s 30-year milestone.
“AIME, MCB, PJSE and Marvel Stadium have worked tirelessly to create a 30th anniversary extravaganza and we are delighted to make the eagerly awaited venue announcement ahead of time,” said Silke Calder, AIME’s Event Director.
“The business and events industry should take a moment for themselves to appreciate the hard work it’s taken to get us to where we are today. I encourage everyone to enjoy a relaxed evening and ladies, you can leave your heels at home.”
AIME delegates will celebrate on the Marvel Stadium oval with state-of-the-art pearl theming celebrating 30 years mirrored in a directional menu curated by Victorian producers, Delaware North.
“As owners of AIME, we are delighted to be co-hosting the 2023 Welcome Event and to celebrate close to a third of a century of bringing the business events industry together, building connections and sharing knowledge at AIME, right here in Australia’s events capital, Melbourne,” said Julia Swanson, Melbourne Convention Bureau’s CEO.
“AIME is now the foremost business events trade show in the Asia-Pacific region. This is a significant testament to the longevity and legacy of the show and its importance to the global business events industry.”
Scott Fitzgerald, Head of Marvel Stadium Commercial, said he is thrilled to showcase Marvel Stadium’s hospitality to the business events industry.
“As the flagship trade show for the business and events industry, and a key contributor to the health of our business tourism economy, AIME is one of the most important events of the year and we couldn’t be happier to be launching its 30th anniversary celebrations at our world-class venue,” he said.
“Marvel Stadium and our facilities connect business and customers together and the soon to be completed $250 million redevelopment, will amplify our ability to bring to life global events such as AIME, and help deliver the best industry event for the Asia Pacific region.”
