M&I Forum The Americas 2015, the industry-leading event for meetings and incentives, to take place in St. Pete, FL.

M&I Forums, the global leaders in one-to-one hospitality trade shows, have opened hosted buyer registration for their annual event in the USA. M&I Forum The Americas 2015 will bring together high-calibre buyers and suppliers from the meetings & incentive industry, allowing them to do business and socialise in the beautiful surroundings of St. Petersburg, Florida. The event will run from 30 August - 3 September, 2015.

Over four days, the event’s 100 suppliers will meet with 200 elite buyers from the meetings industry. This intimate event will provide ample opportunities for networking through pre-scheduled meetings and inspiring activities, forging long-lasting relationships that benefit all parties.

Richard Barnes, Managing Director of Worldwide Events, said: “We believe there is no replacement for meeting your potential business partners face to face. Our aim is to bring together the key players in the industry and create the right environment for them to develop strong business relationships that last for years.”

The historic Vinoy Renaissance St Petersburg Resort and Golf Club (a member of Leading Hotels of the World) will host the Forum, offering the ultimate environment to conduct fruitful meetings and create lasting memories outside of the meeting room.

Barnes added: “We’re delighted to bring the Forum to St. Petersburg. It’s packed with culture, great venues and activities, so for those who don’t already know St. Pete, this is a fabulous opportunity to see what this hidden gem has to offer to the groups market”

St. Pete is an exciting and happening setting for the M&I Forum The Americas 2015 and the ideal starting point for the networking activities planned for delegates. The destination, home to some of the best beaches in the United States, offers something for all – from yacht trips in Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, to tours of the Dalí museum, home to the largest collection of the artist’s work outside Europe.”

Suzanne Scully, Director of Meetings & Conventions at Visit St. Petersburg/Clearwater, said: “We are honored to be the host destination for the M&I Forum in September 2015. Together with the legendary Renaissance Vinoy Resort, we look forward to showcasing our award-winning destination to these prestigious buyers. The exposure we get hosting this type of event is unprecedented and we are excited to welcome M&I Forums to the west coast of Florida.”

With four Forums in Europe and one in Asia this year alone, M&I Forums have the experience to deliver in the USA. “I must say the M&I Forum is the most productive and rewarding event I have ever been to” said a representative from The Venetian Manau Resort Hotel in China, whilst The Ritz, London had similarly high praise: “The M&I Forum exceeded all my expectations and proved of great value to us. The overall standard of the clients was high and many showed a great interest. Thank you and see you next year!”
