Mark Your IMEX Calendar Now for the 2019 Edition of the AIPC Sales and Marketing Summit | May 19
For each of the past 13 years, the AIPC Sales and Marketing Summit has proven to be the perfect kick-off for member participation in IMEX and all the client and industry interactions it entails. Summit participants have the opportunity to compare notes on current issues, consider the latest industry trends and hear from representatives of key customer groups before they hit the show floor and a time of intense industry competition. This year will be no exception.
The 14th in our series of AIPC Sales and Marketing Summits will be held May 19, 2019 in cooperation with IMEX. Now recognized as a key session for International Sales and Marketing executives, the purpose of the Summit is to create a forum in which key market issues and challenges can be assessed in a global context and new strategies developed to address them. Its proven formula of bringing together more than 80 senior-level convention centre sales and marketing executives combined with client representatives and marketing specialists in a workshop setting has delivered consistent results since its inception twelve years ago.
