The world’s leading international meetings marketplace is marking its 14th Anniversary with an earlier date in April for 2016. As always IMEX Frankfurt is going to be another incredible experience. Over the years, IMEX has become the leader in the ever-changing face of the meetings industry. Constantly evolving and with a firm finger on the pulse of all the breaking news and trends, this show really puts you at the center of the action and MCI is inviting you to attend as our guest.
Every year record numbers of international meeting planners and association executives attend IMEX, the essential worldwide exhibition for meetings and incentive travel – featuring IMEX Association Day & Evening, a dedicated education and networking day for association executives.
