IMEX – the essential worldwide exhibition for meetings, incentive travel and events.
IMEX is the show that exceeds your expectations every time. The trail-blazing exhibition has unleashed the energy of the global meetings industry with new ideas, new vision and a passion for business amongst record numbers of worldwide exhibitors and buyers. And IMEX is unique in attracting over 3,700 international hosted buyers (who travel and stay free as guests of the organisers) together with more than 4,000 decision makers from the valuable German market; amongst an overall visitor total of more than 8,700. The 3,500 exhibitors include national and regional tourist offices, major hotel groups, airlines, DMCs, service providers and trade associations.
Organised in partnership with ICCA, IMEX Association Day and Evening is one of the big successes of IMEX. Every year 800 association professionals attend IMEX; 250 of whom attend Association Day, drawn by the stimulating mix of themed sessions, round-table discussions on relevant issues and the chance to meet old and new contacts in a great atmosphere. All ICCA members exhibiting at IMEX are invited to attend Association Evening – a great opportunity to meet association buyers face-to-face. ICCA also organises its mid-year sector and chapter meetings at IMEX, plus a host of seminars, workshops and receptions during the exhibition.
Over 15,000 meeting professionals. Over 8,700 visitors. 3,700 international hosted buyers. 4,000 German buyers. 3,500 exhibitors. 150 countries.
