IMEX in Frankfurt:
IMEX in Frankfurt is the industry-leading annual trade show that regularly attracts over 14,000 participants from all corners of the international business events industry - and consistently punches above its weight!
The show’s USP is its high-quality hosted buyer programme and its tailor-made online appointment system – where a marketplace bursts into life.
Exhibitors from 160 countries include destinations, convention bureaus, hotels, conference and exhibition venues, cruise lines, airlines, spa resorts, technology providers and more. Buyers representing every client type, from freelance or agency event planners to association directors to Strategic Meetings Management Directors and CEOs of multinational corporations also attend in their thousands.
EduMonday, a pre-show day of expert-led education for the industry, features specialist events Association Day, Exclusively Corporate and the Agency Directors Forum. In addition, general education for planners and suppliers takes place at Kap Europa Congress Centre.
