Can I invite potential clients?
ONLY send to clients whose events you have already hosted or provided services for, or with whom you have a contract for future events. DO NOT send to clients whose future business you want: your ICCA colleagues who have hosted their events in the past will be inviting these individuals.
What are the criteria for clients to join the EIBTM Hosted Buyer Programme?
Clients MUST have at least one international event which rotates between three or more countries.
What is the registration deadline?
The registration deadline for Personal Connections is 15 October 2012. This is also the deadline for sending invitations to clients.
What if the clients I invite cannot attend EIBTM as hosted buyers?
Your clients do not need to all register for the Hosted Buyer Programme for you to participate in "Personal Connections" - the fact you have invited them is sufficient demonstration of your support and commitment to the initiative.
What does it cost to attend?
Personal Connections is free of charge.
