We thank Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group for this interview to know more about what is coming on IMEX Frankfurt 2019.

What novelties have you prepared for this 2019 edition?

With 3,500 exhibitors from over 150 countries, IMEX in Frankfurt brings together all the elements that planners need to ignite their imagination – and their business success. Boston, Airport Authority Hong Kong, China Top View Holiday Travel & Tours and Kyiv Tourism Association are just some of the exciting new exhibitors that planners can meet at IMEX in Frankfurt, taking place from 21 – 23 May. The Ministry of Culture & Tourism of Azerbaijan, Caribbean Tours, Monaco, Indonesia, Singapore, Slovenia and Leonardo Hotels are among the many exhibitors who have committed to larger stands this year.

Imagination is IMEX’s Talking Point for this year and informs content throughout the show with education and experiences challenging planners and exhibitors alike to question the conventional and explore new approaches. This includes a new Discovery Zone – an entire hall showcasing the latest in technology and experiential, plus a few surprises along the way.”

The event presents a multifaceted programme with workshops at IMEX Frankfurt and special events. Which of the activities do you think are a must for the visitor or which of them do you highlight?

The aim of our IMEX shows are to bring together professionals from the meetings and events industry in order to build brilliant relationships and do business. The shows also represent a valuable opportunity to discover the latest trends and developments through our education sessions – and IMEX in Frankfurt this year is no exception.

Learning, as always, remains one of the core offerings at IMEX, with a packaged programme of free show floor sessions at the Inspiration Hub as well as a dedicated day of learning - EduMonday taking place on Monday 20 May. 

EduMonday begins with the keynote at She Means Business, created in partnership with tw tagungswirtschaft. After this, attendees can stay and be part of She Means Business, celebrating the role of women in the events industry, or mix and match from a programme of 20 general sessions designed around professional or personal developments.

Event professionals from all sectors and all levels can explore topics and trends via a number of dedicated events within EduMonday, all specifically curated for various audiences. Association professionals from around the world are invited to Association Day & Evening, to share best practice and connect with peers. The Agency Directors Forum is a strategic exchange for small to mid-size meetings and events agencies. There’s also education and networking exclusively for corporate/in-house meeting and event executives at Exclusively Corporate.

What are the advantages of exhibiting at IMEX Frankfurt?

“Exhibitors can meet face to face with qualified buyers from all industry sectors who are responsible for events such as high-level incentives, large scale corporate meetings or huge association conferences. Hosted buyers can use our online appointment system to connect with exhibitors and make appointments to meet them at the show – ensuring that exhibitors meet buyers who are interested in their venue or destination and have business to place.

Exhibitors can also make the most of the free education sessions taking place before the show, during EduMonday, and on the show floor’s Inspiration Hub.

IMEX Frankfurt is constantly innovating in the incentive travel sector!

Raquel González

Imex in Frankfurt is the most important meeting and trade show for the incentive travel sector in Germany. On April 19-21 the worldwide exhibition comes back again to Messe Frankfurt (Hall 8), so in order to know whats going up for 2016's edition, we have interviewed the organisers of the show. Carina Bauer, IMEX Group's CEO has answered all our doubts and gives us some advice on how to enjoy this important meeting of the industry.

IMEX Frankfurt is the most important meeting and incentive travel sector trade show in Germany. What stands out IMEX above other similar fairs?

Our hallmark Hosted Buyer Programme, which our founder and Chairman – Ray Bloom - pioneered 30 years ago, enables qualified meeting and incentive travel buyers to attend the show and do business with suppliers from around the world in a fun and efficient environment. Buyers can tailor the Hosted Buyer Programme to suit their needs with the flexibility to choose the people they want to meet with and enable time to network and attend education sessions. We regularly receive feedback from hosted buyers saying how invaluable IMEX is to them: three days of face-to-face meetings gets their event planning underway and saves them an incredible amount of time.

Our high-quality education programme is free to attend and very comprehensive with over 180 education sessions covering topics such as Business Skills, Creative Learning, Sustainability, Technology and Marketing.

Imex Registration

IMEX also has unique features including events dedicated to specific sectors of the meetings and events industry such as Exclusively Corporate @IMEX for corporate meeting and event planners; and Association Day exclusively for association executives.

We see IMEX as integral to the meetings and incentive travel industry and as such run programmes throughout the year with the aim of supporting and developing the sector. One such programme is the Politicians Forum which brings together the meetings and event sector with governments from around the world to promote the valuable contribution that our industry makes to economic development and business tourism. We’re also dedicated to supporting and developing up-and-coming talent through our international series of Future Leaders Forums that run in 13 countries around the world.

Finally, IMEX has a broad range of industry partnerships including a Strategic Partnership with the GCB German Convention Bureau. IMEX is endorsed by DMAI, ICCA and Site; is a major partner and sponsor of MPI; has an Industry Partnership with PCMA and is an AIPC Corporate Partner. In addition, IMEX has close ties with every major industry trade association, including ASAE, CIC, ISES and JMIC.
