IMEX shows


Show history

Our vibrant shows are the go-to events for the global meetings industry.  

Since launching our first exhibition in 2003, IMEX Frankfurt has been held at Messe Frankfurt since 2005.

Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas has been our dedicated venue partner since 2021, which coincided with our 10 year IMEX America anniversary celebration.

We are supported by our partners, including leading industry associations AIPC, Destinations International, ICCA, MPI, PCMA and SITE and the GCB German Convention Bureau.

Everyone who is part of the global meetings industry is invited to join us and be a part of our shows.
