AroundThen has been shortlisted by ibtm - a recognised global forum within the meetings, events and incentives arenas - as one of the top ten technology innovations set to transform the global meetings and events industry.

The announcement was made after a rigorous evaluation process for the Technology and Innovation Watch award, where an independent panel of judges made the selection from over sixty other submissions globally.

AroundThen will be showcased within the Innovation Zone at ibtm world 2015 in November, the flagship event within the ibtm events portfolio and will form a key part of the Innovation Zone’s global marketing campaign. In total, ibtm world provides access to 3,000 suppliers representing over 150 countries and over 15,500 meetings and events industry professionals, and is the leading global event for the meetings, incentives, conferences, events and business travel industry.

Graeme Barnett, Senior Exhibition Director of ibtm world said, “This year we had more than sixty international applicants for the ibtm world 2015 Technology and Innovation Watch award and our independent panel of judges shortlisted ten companies for their innovation, completeness of concept, and the value of their product to the meetings industry. The Innovation Zone provides a unique opportunity for attendees to experience, interact with and learn about these exciting innovations.”

Ken Mawbey, Founder and CEO of AroundThen commented, “We’re honoured and delighted to be recognised by ibtm world as one of the top event tech innovators, and are looking forward to demonstrating how our leading edge technology brings greater value and engagement to organisers and delegates, at one of the world’s most prestigious industry events.”
