The MBCC’s event lineup is extensive and varied. Peterson mentions Seatrade, a major event in the cruise ship industry, and FIME, alongside new launches like Cosmoprof, a beauty event by Informa Markets. The partnership with Informa markets and Reed Exhibitions has fostered a series of annual events, including several jewelry shows and the popular Supercon. Peterson’s excitement is palpable as he talks about expanding into the sports market. “It’s starting to heat up a lot more,” he says, revealing plans for volleyball, a major basketball event, and other sports-related gatherings.
