“This is a highly creative and forward-looking industry” says Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group

“This is a highly creative, responsive and forward-looking industry – and that will be very clear to everyone who comes to IMEX in Frankfurt,” says Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group before IMEX in Frankfurt takes place from 16 – 18 May.

“It’s going to be a great experience with plenty to inspire everyone. When we bring thousands of people from all sides of the industry together in one place to do business, make connections and discuss what’s new and what they need, there is a creative energy and excitement which those who are there will feel all around them.”

“They’ll find this creativity, inspiration and energy on the show floor where there are many new exhibitors, innovative new products, new services and spectacular new stand designs. There’s also a wider variety of education sessions with many new topics.

Throughout the show are innovations and improvements to enhance the experience for all our attendees.

“Much of this comes from asking, listening and responding to what people say they want. Overall, we’re offering more opportunities to do business, learn and make new connections than ever.”


“It starts on Monday – EduMonday. We’ve created a full day of learning opportunities in both English and German providing insights into event design, future trends and hot new technologies.This is additional to the PCMA Business School, Exclusively Corporate @IMEX, which has a new programme streamed to meet corporate planners’ needs, and Association Day which has also been restructured in response to research. Monday is going to be a busy and lively day!

“Also, during the show, we’ve created Tech Tours, one-hour guided tours taking in several different stands, to help buyers sample a cross-section of the innovative technology solutions at the show.

“Among the many outstanding new education sessions will be several on the theme of Purposeful Meetings. We’ve introduced a keynote session and the first findings of a major piece of research about this will be exclusively revealed at the show.

“And of course, throughout the week there are all the well-established reasons that already bring the industry together at IMEX – the chance to meet face to face and do business with 3000 plus exhibitors, and to take part in the many co-located industry meetings and major networking events and make the most of all the many opportunities to learn.”

“IMEX in Frankfurt will showcase a vast range of new ideas and developments that epitomise the creativity and forward-thinking approach within the industry – it’s the place to discover and experience it all, and to the full,” Carina Bauer concludes.
