IMEX in Frankfurt 21-23 May, 2019

The worldwide exhibition for incentive travel, meetings and events

Sights set on diversity, inclusion, collaboration, ‘new work’ and more . . . .
May 21-23 2019 are the days when a visit to IMEX in Frankfurt
offers worldwide destinations, venues, tech providers - and much more. (As before, there will also be an earlier day devoted to education on May 20.)
Exhibitors will range from New Zealand, Senses of Cuba, Barcelona Convention Bureau, Visit Brussels to Kempinski Hotels, Melia Hotels and Latvia.
During the three days of the show planners can meet with more than 3,500 suppliers from every sector of the global meetings and events industry.
IMEX’s pre-show education day, EduMonday, will take place on 20 May and this year it will again include ‘She Means Business’. But, new this year, EduMonday will start at lunchtime with a Keynote Speaker after which the programme offers both English- and German-language learning opportunities.

Collaboration, co-creation and the circular economy
The 2019 edition of IMEX in Frankfurt will also feature many new content ideas that have flowed from the feedback received from previous shows.
Reflecting current trends within the events industry and the world at large, topics such as diversity and inclusion, collaboration and co-creation - plus the circular economy - will all be explored.
IMEX in Frankfurt 2019 will take place at Messe Frankfurt from 21 -23 May 2019, with EduMonday, its pre-show day of learning and insights, on Monday 20 May.
