IBTM Launches New Content, Connectivity Platform in IBTM Connect

March 25, 2020

IBTM Events launched a new platform this week called IBTM Connect. The online resource hub is designed as a space for business events professionals to access and share knowledge and practical guidance, increasingly relevant in today’s uncertain world. 

According to IBTM officials, the launch is part of a three-step plan to connect exhibitors, hosted buyers and the wider industry as we collectively navigate the impact of COVID-19.

“We recognize that this is an unprecedented period of challenge for our industry and we’re absolutely committed to continuing to provide support and education for our peers,” said Shane Hannam, portfolio director for IBTM Events. “Our connections and industry partnerships mean that we are uniquely positioned to create and curate high quality content from around the globe that can serve to provide insights and tangible benefits during this time.”

He added, “By keeping conversations going and sharing learnings, together we can weather the storm and emerge in the strongest possible position to rebuild and recover.”

IBTM Connect will feature regular content such as blog posts, newsletters and videos with insights from industry professionals. For example, motivational keynote speaker Gary Bradt will deliver a session on how to cope during times of unprecedented change on April 8 at 2:30 p.m. EST (learn more and sign up for a reminder here). Expect to find coverage on topics from mental health and wellness to crisis management and working from home in the coming weeks.
