This year’s show will see the return of the successful AIME Community Hub, decorated in the iconic purple and silver accents to highlight the anniversary. The Hub is the perfect place for visitors to get connected, recharge both themselves and their devices, gather information, and view live footage from around the show floor. The Hub will feature a dedicated photo booth and an interactive ‘Post-it Note’ wall, which lets visitors share their AIME moments and inspirations. This year AIME has partnered with Microhire, who will provide an innovative video wall and interactive social media broadcast that will post live updates at the HUB for a truly immersive experience for guests.
AIME has once again partnered with with Clifton Productions and exponent, to create the AIME Knowledge Lounge, a unique educational environment that provides two full days of learning opportunities, easily accessible on the show floor and open to all attendees free of charge.
The Hyatt Regency Lounge has been designed to encourage people to connect by offering Confident, Clever and Energetic experiences. An oxygen bar will provide the revitalising effects of pure oxygen in a variety of flavours, helping to rejuvenate and energise visitors, while a juice bar will provide healthy refreshments.
Celebrating the local and international guests, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is hosting a food fair called ‘Streets of Melbourne’ that will highlight locally sourced produce, local delights and delicious food accessible to all visitors.
Be Challenged will showcase a range of activities and programs aimed to engage visitors and encourage them to learn something new. From the latest gamification technology to experiencing the thrills of playing in an Orchestra, visitors will have the opportunity to join in the latest in interactive team building activities.
Ian Wainwright, Event Director – AIME, Reed Travel Exhibitions commented on why these features strengthen visitor experience.
“This year we focused on enhancing the visitor experience by providing opportunities to engage and interact with technology and creating a fun collaborative atmosphere for networking. Everyone involved in AIME becomes truly immersed in the experience of doing business, being inspired, making connections, and engaging and interacting with exhibitors.
“AIME 2017 is sure to cater to all our visitor’s needs, and features a few surprises to make it even more memorable. Beyond connections, AIME is about celebrating our community, our powerful meetings and events industry and of course, our 25th birthday,” said Mr Wainwright.
