Asia Pacific Incentives and Meetings Event (AIME), has announced its speaker line-up and the official themes for its 2022 Knowledge Program.
Delivered in partnership with Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) and Meetings & Events Australia (MEA), the AIME Knowledge Program is a mix of keynote and breakout sessions. The three core themes behind this year’s program are Business Innovation, Driving Engagement and Human Connection.
The Knowledge Program will be hosted by Australian broadcast journalist and former news anchor Mimi Kwa. Confirmed speakers for the program so far include Simon Griffiths and Steve Sammartino. Griffiths is the co-founder and CEO of Who Gives A Crap, a profit-for-purpose toilet paper company that uses 50 per cent of its profits to build toilets in the developing world. Sammartino is Australia’s leading futurist, tech entrepreneur and growth hacker. He is also the host of TV Program The Rebound (featured on the Nine Network, one of Australia’s largest commercial free-to air television networks).
In anticipation of the Knowledge Program, Steve Sammartino says he is most looking forward to sharing his expertise on how to lead and succeed despite the uncertainty of the pandemic. “The past 23 months have led to dramatic shifts in the way organisations operate. In a climate of constant disruptions, effective leaders have to embrace and thrive within uncertainty, possessing the foresight to transform their organisation to capitalise on new business growth.” said Sammartino.
AIME event director Silke Calder said, “AIME’s top priority is to put on a quality and thought-provoking show, especially when it comes to the Knowledge Program.
Program partner, PCMA’s Managing Director (APAC) Florence Chua said, “PCMA is very excited to partner with AIME in curating this much-awaited opportunity to re-convene the community for the human connections we dearly missed.
AIME’s Knowledge Program will commence in person Monday 21 March and continue with the Ideas Academy on Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 March.
AIME takes place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on 21–23 March in person and 28 March–1 April online.
