IMEXWith a mission of bringing the global events community together to do business, learn and drive positive change, IMEX is making Impact its annual Talking Point for 2024/25.

Over the next two years, IMEX will be inviting people and organizations from every part of the global business events industry to make a more positive impact through their events, their personal and professional actions, their commercial partnerships and more.

“IMEX is in a unique position in the global events industry,” said Carina Bauer, CEO, IMEX Group. “We ‘only’ run two annual trade shows and yet, because of their global market significance, our team’s visibility and experience, and our deep relationships with the sector, we’re often treated differently. That means people expect us to lead, to have a voice and to represent the best interests of all involved. I’ve learned not to take this responsibility lightly but to embrace it as an extraordinary opportunity to make a bigger, positive impact on the world.”

IMEX Frankfurt takes place May 14 to 16 at Messe Frankfurt, with more than 150 education sessions across seven tracks:Trends & Research, Impact, Business Practices, Experience Design, Event Marketing, Technology & Innovation and Wellbeing.

IMEX America will be held October 8 to 10 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
