IMEX Chairman Ray Bloom, Chairman and Carina Bauer, CEO IMEX Group sent this message today to exhibitors and registered visitors:
Dear IMEX Participant,
We are shocked and saddened at the events that have taken place in Las Vegas over the past 24 hours.
We can confirm that IMEX America will be going ahead at the Sands Expo next week from Oct 10 – 12 (Smart Monday, Oct. 9).
Both IMEX America and the Sands have very strong security in place, with both visible and plainclothes security teams in the venue and at the tradeshow. Over the coming days, we will be working closely with the Sands, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and the Las Vegas authorities to assess any additional security measures that are needed at this time. We will take their full advice in ensuring the best possible security and safety of our guests.
We will send you further information as it becomes available.
In the meantime, if you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to contact us and we are very much looking forward to welcoming the industry to IMEX America next week.
With Best Regards,
Ray Bloom, Chairman and Carina Bauer, CEO IMEX Group.
