IBTM World has announced the introduction of its Elite Corporate Programme, which takes place on November 20th, the second day of IBTM World, in Barcelona.
Created in association with American Express Meeting & Events, a division of American Express Global Business Travel, supported by the Event Marketing Association and sponsored by London & Partners, the Elite Corporate Programme includes four sessions addressing some of the key challenges facing senior corporate event organisers.
The programme is an opportunity to learn, network and share best practices in an intimate environment and finishes with an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Barcelona and an exciting social dining experience.

Our new Elite Corporate Programme is all about providing these event planners with a unique environment in which to learn and share ideas and challenges.”
