IMEX in Frankfurt is well-known for the scope and diversity of its education programme, which is one of three core activities that drive the show’s value every year; the other two being business AssociationDay2012appointments and networking opportunities.

All IMEX education is provided free of charge as part of the organisers’ commitment to helping the international meetings, events and incentive travel industry develop and grow. Many of the industry’s leading trade associations also use IMEX to share latest insight with their members, as well as providing informed education for all visitors.

Using the IMEX App allows visitors to save and view their personal list of events and seminars while also being able to check what’s coming up in the next hour. A ‘notes’ facility also give app users the chance to take notes during seminars and then email them back to themselves or share them with absent colleagues.
