Several destinations -- Colombia, El Salvador, Paraguay and Uruguay -- will have stands for the first time at EIBTM, the annual meeting and incentive trade show, which will take place Nov. 28-30, 2006, in Barcelona.

The National Restaurant Association announced on Friday the group will keep its annual Restaurant Hotel-Motel Show in Chicago at least through 2011. According to association officials, a recent labor agreement between McCormick Place and Riggers Union Local 136, which gives exhibitors more flexibility and control when loading into the convention center, contributed to the decision to stay in Chicago.
