The festival, which takes place across 50 days this month, will also host ABPCO (Association of British Professional Conference Organisers), AEV (Association of Event Venues) and ESSA (Event Supplier and Services Association), as well as a networking reception at the Liver Building on 1 July, sponsored by Concerto Group, as part of a joint industry initiative.
The Business Visits & Events Partnership (BVEP) will host its partner meeting and has created a programme of site visits around Liverpool including Albert Dock, the Echo Arena and BT Convention Centre and Anfield, home of Liverpool FC.
Michael Foreman, ABPCO immediate past chair and head of external relations, said: "The International Festival for Business shows Britain at its most creative and innovative best.
"It’s only right for the events sector to play its part and be fully represented as the world of business gathers in Liverpool to work together to build better relationships".
Also delivering a full programme of events during the IFB will be the National Tourist Board, Visit England, British Destinations, the Tourism Society and The European Tour Operators Association.
Earlier this month (8 May), Adlib won a three-month contract to help deliver the Trade and Investment hub at the IFB.
