The organiser of the meetings industry trade show IMEX, which opens in Frankfurt today, has hailed the IMEX Association Day for 2013, which took place on the eve of the show, a success, with 300 association executives attending.
The delegates networked at the Messe Frankfurt Congress Centre and took part in a programme devised by association executives for association executives. Debate centred on important issues facing association meetings planners as well as their senior directors, and particularly to provide specific takeaways and practical action points.
There were three education tracks – executive, operations and meetings.
Meanwhile, 70 corporate buyers from a variety of multi-national companies attended the first ever Exclusively Corporate @IMEX event at the Rocco Forte Villa Kennedy in Frankfurt on 20 May. Together they control annual meetings and events budgets in excess of US$200m.
The event is the latest in a series of meeting industry innovations by IMEX. This event is designed to provide corporate buyers with a high-level, private forum offering tailored education and networking plus expertly-facilitated discussion.
IMEX 2013 takes place in Frankfurt 21-23 May.
