“An outstanding week of business and experiences to stir the imagination”


The words are from Ray Bloom, Chairman of the IMEX Group.

IMEX in Frankfurt 2019 came to an end and Ray Bloom couldn’t be happier. “The spectacular destinations and venues, the investment in sensational, creative stand designs and the great energy in the hall have created an inspiring environment to do business and to learn; and from all the business being done, there is evidently a strong, positive, forward-looking mood at the show and optimism around the industry.”This growing confidence was also reflected by the high level of engagement between exhibitors and buyers at the show. Close to 70,000 individual and group appointments were made with 72 per cent having a mini RFP attached.

For Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group, the experiences in the new Discovery Zone, the fresh ideas in the Red Lab and the new technology have stood out. “From the many specially created activities on EduMonday and the learning sessions in the Inspiration Hub to the Discovery Zone and the operations of the whole event, our partners have played a crucial collaborative role in creating such an engaging show.

The new date for IMEX in Frankfurt 2020 will be 12-14 May.
