IMEX in Frankfurt:
IMEX is the event at the heart of the international meetings industry. Held every May in Messe Frankfurt, IMEX is where event planners from around the world come to meet with destinations, convention bureaus, hotels, destination management companies – and each other.
A three-day festival of product launches, networking events, creativity and education, IMEX has a reputation for being an ideal place to source fresh ideas and information key to organising an outstanding event or incentive travel programme. It’s also, quite simply, where people spend time getting to know each other face to face.
The day before IMEX opens, there are two free educational events offering a chance to learn, share ideas and network. Association Day is designed exclusively for association executives, and is delivered by ASAE and ICCA, while Exclusively Corporate @IMEX is a programme tailored for corporate event planners. If you’re in the meetings industry, you should be at IMEX. Website: www.imex-frankfurt.com
Every October, event planners from around the world head to Las Vegas for IMEX America, where – just like at its sister event in Frankfurt – they can meet international destinations, convention bureaus, hotels, airlines and DMCs – all under one roof. A vibrating hub of business, networking and education opportunities, IMEX America provides everything essential to making an event not just successful, but outstanding.
While IMEX America is brilliant for getting business done, its other magic ingredient is its warm and welcoming atmosphere. People come here to catch up with contacts old and new, to spend time getting to know each other in person. It makes a refreshing change from long-distance conversations.
The day before IMEX, Association Focus – a free educational event – is brimming with problem-solving workshops and networking opportunities. Run by ASAE and ICCA, it’s designed exclusively for association executives. Come to IMEX America and experience the pulse of the meetings industry. Website: www.imexamerica.com
IMEX Group runs two international shows for event planners looking to organise worldwide meetings, events and incentive travel programmes. IMEX in Frankfurt and IMEX America provide outstanding business opportunities for exhibitors and buyers, as well as offering exceptional education and networking opportunities. Both shows offer a convenient chance for people to meet face to face and build lasting business relationships.
