From 29th June to 2nd July 2013 the 28th Annual General Assembly / Congress of the World Association of exhibition forwarding agents IELA - International Exhibition Logistics Association - was held at the invitation of BTG Messe-Spedition GmbH in Munich.
Following on from Barcelona, Seoul, London, Paris, Melbourne and Santiago de Chile, we were very pleased that IELA chose the Bavarian State Capital as the venue for their annual congress – this was already the second time after 1990.
Over 150 delegates from 41 member-companies attended the IELA Congress. During the subsequent IELA partnering event - a networking event for non-members – which took place from 3rd to 4th July, BTG was able to welcome more than 300 participants to Munich.
Five days of intensive networking on the part of all participants (over 3,500 one-to-one meetings), interesting lectures and productive meetings of the working groups of IELA were only part of the programme.
There was no shortage of fun either – for example at the traditional
Bavarian evening in the well-known “Augustiner Keller” or during the Bavarian Olympic Games on the grounds of the Arnhofen Estate.
The Gala Dinner to celebrate the 28th IELA Congress took place at the noble Bernheimer Palace.
The Congress and the partnering event were a great success for all participants and for BTG Messe-Spedition GmbH it was a pleasure to organize this congress and to be able to act as host.
