The trade show will be taking place at the Hilton Diplomat Resort & Spa Hollywood, Florida, in June 2017.

Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau regional director of sales Gilbert Villard told C&IT he was really excited for the ibtm America to come to the resort, which is currently undergoing a £66m ($100m) renovation to be ready for the show.

Jaime McAuley, marketing director for Reed Travel Exhibitions, added: "It’s great to take the show to new places and we like to move to a different city every year. It keeps things fresh and interesting."

In 2016, ibtm America will take place in Nashville, Tennessee, and will utilise the ‘mutual match’ system from ibtm Arabia, where both exhibitor and buyer have to request to meet each other for the appointment to be made. Ibtm America will also be adopting the ‘individual pod’ design for stalls from ibtm Arabia.
