Throughout the whole IMEX 2020 event there will be opportunities for visitors to meet suppliers, to get abreast of the latest techniques and ideas and to network with experienced people in this specialised aspect of global business.

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.
