‘Sharp restart’ for in-person events as Covid restrictions ease in Europe

The last part of the year is proving to be a real restart period for AIM Group International, with a sharp reboot of in-person events including many international conferences with large audiences.

From the end of August to December, AIM Group is managing 35 major events (with more than 100 participants) involving about 15,000 participants overall, more often in hybrid format.

“We are experiencing an enthusiastic response to in-person events from association and corporate clients and from the delegates, happy to leave for a trip, meet their international colleagues face to face, exchange ideas, chat freely and strengthen new relationships in a safe environment,” said Gianluca Buongiorno, president at AIM Group International.

“Safety is a major concern, all the protective and preventative measures are put in place, and we notice that delegates feel very comfortable and confident and are quickly getting used to a new normality.”

Some of the major events organised include the European ESOT Congress 2021 which brought together 1,200 delegates in-person in Milan, joined by 1,400 delegates online.

The Cibus International Food Fair in Parma and the General Assembly and Scientific Symposium of the International Union of Radio Science are other significant conferences planned across Europe. Another upcoming event is even an incentive group from Mexico to Portugal.

“We are really excited about these results,” said Buongiorno.

“We are sure that the recovery of the events industry and its new face and identity will emerge only if we don’t let go of our obsession with making it happen.”
