Following a competitive tender process, Zibrant has been selected to co-ordinate aspects of the conference ranging from event logistics to delegate registration.

The Institute of Travel & Meetings (ITM) Conference is an annual forum providing opportunity for those within the business travel industry to listen to top industry experts, learn about new products and innovations and network with others in the field. The theme for next year’s ITM Conference is 'Intelligent Futures'.

Head of sales and marketing for ITM, Diane Steed, said: "Our annual conference is a highlight in the UK business travel and meetings calendar. We pride ourselves on staging an event that meets the educational and networking needs of business travel and meetings buyers, and that means we work with organisations that can demonstrate creativity, attention to detail and, above all, value for money.

"Working with Zibrant will bring a fresh new approach and expertise that we were looking for to develop the conference and take it to the next level."

The 2014 event marks the conferences 42nd year, and is expected to draw in more than 350 business travel experts including travel and meetings buyers, third party travel relationship managers and suppliers of business travel or meetings products and services.

In 2014, the ITM Conference will take place at the five-star Celtic Manor Resort, South Wales, from 12-14 of May.

Anthony Coyle-Dowling, global sales director at Zibrant, added: "After a number of years spent enjoying the experience at the ITM Conference as delegates, we’re proud and excited to have the opportunity to now be involved in the planning of such a significant industry event."
