IMEX in Frankfurt 12-14 May, 2020

3,400 exhibitors from 170 countries

Make sure you get to mix with them
Taking place at the Frankfurter Messe from 12 to 14 May 2020, IMEX will once again be an exhilarating exhibition with something to inspire and update everyone in the global MICE sector. There will be over 3,400 exhibitors from at least 170 countries.

But IMEX has now grown into something much more than an exhibition Even before the exhibition opens, the previous day, 11 May, will be EduMonday, totally dedicated to education for all levels of MICE professionals.

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.
