AIM Group International, a diversified company working in the meeting industry released its financial results for the year 2016 and generated revenue of 107 million euro and an EBITDA of over 3 million euro.
The increase of more than 7 million euro in revenues compared to 2015 is due mainly to the growth in assets reported by all of the Group’s companies and offices.
Gianluca Buongiorno, President of AIM Group International, stated, “All key indicators are positive and we continue to see improvements across the board. We will continue to leverage this growth into smart investments, acquisition and growth.”
Gianluca Scavo, the Group’s Managing Director added, “We are very satisfied with the 2016 results and are exploring new opportunities to expand our portfolio and services to develop strong partnerships with our clients.”
AIM Group continues to see profitability from each of its operating segments. The asset base continues to grow as the company expands operations and creates more services throughout all sectors.
The 2016 growth shows stable development in the two leading product areas: Professional Congress Organisation (PCO) and Meetings, experiencing strong advancement in the healthcare sector and a client portfolio made up of association and corporate clients. The Group has managed more than 2.000 projects and more than 20 as Core PCO. It has seen a stable increase of global accounts and has confirmed congresses until 2025.
