IMEX America returns this September
Registration is now live for IMEX America taking place September 10 – 12, 2019 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center at The Venetian® | The Palazzo®.
With the show hitting the Strip a whole month earlier than previous editions, planners and exhibitors alike are encouraged to prepare for three days of premium business, learning and networking opportunities. IMEX America is again preceded by the popular Smart Monday, a dedicated day of learning powered by Meeting Professionals International, on September 9.
Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group, explains: “Our experience of delivering the show year after year shows that the magic happens in between the cracks – an unexpected business connection, piece of advice or new supplier that’s truly a result of meeting face to face. IMEX America allows planners to dive into the heart of the events industry, do business, update their skillset and make new discoveries along the way.” Expert speakers and presenters from around the world are now invited to apply to present an education session at IMEX America. The IMEX team uses a stringent blind-review process to ensure that all sessions that make the cut are relevant, relatable and deliver actionable insights. This year the team is particularly interested in submissions relating to diversity & inclusion, imagination & curiosity, negotiating skills & difficult conversations, crisis management & contingency planning, networking and technology including Artificial Intelligence. For more details and to see the speaker application criteria, see here. The deadline for applications is Monday, June 3.
