Reed Travel Exhibitions' IBTM Global Events Portfolio has revealed that IBTM India 2014 will take place at the ITC Grand Chola, Chennai from 3-5 September.

"The launch edition, hosted in Mumbai, was a huge success and as part of our ongoing drive and determination to develop the meetings industry market in India we have chosen to move the show to another up and coming MICE destination. Chennai is the fifth most populous city in India and one of the fastest growing cities in the world," said Shinu Pillai, Reed Travel Exhibitions, IBTM India project manager.

The event will follow the same table-top format as the launch event. Limited to 100 international and Indian suppliers of product and services to the C&I industry, it is designed to facilitate pre-arranged meetings between international and Indian buyers with suppliers over a table-top environment at a 1:1 ratio.
