The increased stand space, double what was taken at the previous event, will enable Macau to promote itself as a business tourism destination and position it as the new, vibrant, appealing and exciting destination for the international meetings industry. Exhibiting partners from Macau have grown three fold, increasing from 8 to 24. In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Macau SAR (Special Administrative Region), the MGTO launched the “Strategic MICE Market Stimulation Programme” in May, which forms part of the biggest ever promotion by MGTO at CIBTM 2009. The stimulation programme is to assist business tourism partners and maintain the momentum and competitive edge Macau has been building as an international destination. CIBTM exhibition director Graeme Barnett said “Macau’s continuous presence at the show demonstrates their rise as a destination for the meetings and incentive industry. We are excited that they are back and have increased their stand space. Their attendance will certainly add to the success of CIBTM 2009.” Free registration is now available for hosted buyers and trade visitors by visiting www.cibtm.com and completing the online form.
