IMEX in Frankfurt is the efficient, one-stop-shop for planners looking to book and organise worldwide meetings, events and incentive travel programmes.
n a year when the IMEX Group set out to live and breathe its 2017 Talking Point – Purposeful Meetings – exhibitor and buyer feedback suggests the new, experiential approach to IMEX in Frankfurt paid off.
From the launch of EduMonday on 15 May to the creation and expansion of registration, wellbeing, education and food services into Hall 9, this year’s IMEX was defined by positive and highly visual transformations with innovation radiating throughout the show.
Close to 9000 hosted buyers and visitors flocked to IMEX in Frankfurt for four days of focused business, education, connection and community. Total appointments between buyers and the show’s 3500 exhibitors rose to 68,500.
Following a year of planned improvements to the appointment system, focused on educating buyers about the value of giving exhibitors mini RFPs (‘appointment profiles’) in advance, 74 per cent of all buyer/exhibitor appointments were based on an appointment profile, an increase of 42 per cent.
Ray Bloom, Chairman of the IMEX Group, commented: “The strong level of business conducted here this week is evidence of the wholesale resilience and positive outlook of the market in what are challenging times all over the globe.”
From Monday to Thursday there was innovation at every turn. The introduction of EduMonday added event technology, event design certification and business masterclasses to the options available to every single participant. Along with PCMA Business School, Association Day, Exclusively Corporate and ICCA mid-year meetings, a total of 1500 people took part in the newly integrated programme.
The meeting point for the IMEXrun is the north side of the Holbeinsteg bridge over the river Main. Refer to this link for an exact location: https://goo.gl/maps/8XLNPN1K8N42.

IMEX’s unique “sweatworking” opportunity is back for 2017. This 5km fun run is once again taking place on the shores of the river Main as part of IMEX’s wellbeing initiatives.
We encourage IMEX attendees to join the IMEXrun and balance an intense week of business with healthy physical activity.
The IMEXrun concept was developed by events by tlc, an event specialist with offices in Portugal, Spain, Brazil and Florida who are inspired by healthy lifestyle trends and the unifying power of sports.
