ACS builds Knowledge Village at ibtm 2017

The countdown to the ibtm world has begun! November 28th through to November 30th will see a ‘who’s who’ of global conference and event players get together in the Fira in Barcelona. Besides the tradeshow, the educational program is also an important part of the ibtm. Encompassing a large number of high quality innovative, creative and groundbreaking subjects presented by top speakers from the industry.

Like previous years ibtm has chosen to concentrate the entire educational program in a single location on the tradeshow floor at the ‘ACS Knowledge Village’. Sessions become more visible and easier accessible to visitors, who don’t have to leave the tradeshow floor to attend. ACS and ibtm have been working close together to deliver the vision of the village.

This year’s ACS Knowledge Village will be centered around a meeting area providing access to three hexagonal shaped theaters, a Tech theatre, a press room and a news area. ACS’s brand Eventresult is onsite to ensure the extensive program runs smoothly by implementing their presentation management system. The Speaker Service Center on the back of the Tech room provides speakers with the possibility to prepare their presentations in peace, surrounded by technical specialists. The Tech theatre provides a unique and interactive showcase of the latest innovations impacting the meetings and events industry. In the adjacent area you can meet the companies behind the top 10 innovations who were shortlisted from over 60 Technology and Innovation Watch Award entries.

For the first time the meeting area will include a Knowledge Village Information Desk manned by ibtm and a ACS and Eventresult hospitality area (P100). From here ACS is taking interested visitors for a tour backstage or for a chat and a drink. The newsroom, also located on the central square is a dynamic area visible to the public in which all content for the digital TV and signage network on site is produced. Also present here is an interview corner, where live interviews will be held throughout. Additionally some of the important keynote speaches wil be streamed live to the ibtm website.

We look forward to meeting you in Barcelona.
