IMEX America, the largest meetings industry trade show in the U.S., will be held October 11-13 at Mandalay Bay. If you are a meetings and events professional, you will find all the suppliers you need for your events — from new venues in major cities worldwide, to the latest event tech providers. See our full preview in this month’s digital edition of Corporate & Incentive Travel magazine.
New this year is Pathways to Clarity, where they have streamlined the education program from 10 tracks to four: Respect for People and Planet, Future Self, Innovation and Creativity and Event Planner Toolkit. There are more than 200 educational events over four days, beginning with Smart Monday on October 10, powered by MPI. Additionally, the expanded Inspiration Hub is once again home to show-floor education tailored for agency, corporate and association professionals. Sessions will include topics such as how to build communication skills; understanding new technologies, such as the metaverse and cryptocurrencies; managing post-pandemic expectations and more. Attendees will learn strategies on everything from managing supply to handling pricing fluidity and contract clauses.
The IMEX-EIC People and Planet Village, which was launched last year, will return, featuring a campfire area dedicated to sustainability, diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as the chance to take part in activities that support the local community. C&IT
