With doors barely closed on its most experiential and largest IMEX in Frankfurt to date, the event’s team now turns its sights to IMEX America.
Free attendee and hosted buyer registration opens online today for IMEX America number eight. The show is set to shine with innovation and ingenuity in its usual setting of the Sands® Expo and Convention Center at The Venetian® | The Palazzo® in Las Vegas from October 16 – 18, 2018, with Smart Monday, powered by MPI, on October 15.
There will be once again be an enormous range of opportunities to do business, to discover new destinations, hotels, services and technologies, to learn about the latest ideas and trends and to make connections with industry contacts.
There will also be some eye-opening and mind-opening innovations to extend and disrupt traditional concepts of meetings and events. In Frankfurt, one observer described the line-up of new formats and experiences as a ‘cascade of cool’. With IMEX America expanding into larger halls for 2018, event’s partners and exhibitors will have plenty of room to demonstrate their inventiveness and flex their marketing muscles.
With experiential events dominating this year’s business landscape, IMEX America will showcase a wealth of new ideas to planners who are constantly under pressure to deliver new thinking and fresh design. One of the outstanding proponents of these radical, challenging and inspiring new experiences will be C2 International, the ground-breaking experts in innovative business conference. As a result of a new partnership with the IMEX Group, C2 will be bringing its Learning Labs to Las Vegas, providing a further indication of the IMEX commitment to encouraging creativity in the industry.
The show will be preceded on October 15 by Smart Monday, powered by MPI, when a vast number of meetings professionals will arrive in Las Vegas for a day full of professional development events. Association Evening, the Executive Meetings Forum, PCMA Business School and the Association Leadership Forum (created by ASAE) are among the activities which, along with an extensive program of learning arranged by IMEX strategic partner MPI, will provide educational sessions to suit many needs and specific interests.
IMEX America is well-known for providing many networking opportunities at popular co-located events including the Shamrock Invitational, SITE Nite North America, the Events Industry Council Hall of Leaders & Pacesetters Awards Celebration plus MPI Foundation Rendezvous.
