The 250 or more networking events will embrace Educational Seminars, Campfires (small informal sessions), an Agency Directors Forum, Expert Clinics, a Research Pod, an Exclusively Corporate get-together and a She Means Business meeting.

Naturally, IMEX 2020 will finish with an unrivalled Gala Dinner, where some of the new friendships and business connections can be cemented in a celebratory environment.
