After a sold-out show in 2012, IMEX America return to Las Vegas bigger and better than ever. This is the power source for the meetings industry. Plug in this October!
Buyers are invited to attend IMEX America either as part of the hosted buyer program or independently as buyer attendees. All buyers at IMEX America should be involved in, have some connection to, or interest in, the meetings and incentive travel and associated industries.
Buyers placing business both internationally and domestically within the US can either apply for the hosted buyer program or can attend independently as buyer attendees. Buyers who only place business domestically within the US are welcome to attend as buyer attendees but are not eligible to apply for the hosted buyer program.
To qualify for the hosted buyer program, buyers have to meet strict qualifying criteria and commit to attending eight appointments per day at the show with exhibitors of their choice.
If you don't qualify to be a hosted buyer, as a buyer attendee, you can enjoy discounted hotel and travel, no-cost education sessions and more. Check out all the buyer attendee benefits here.
Buyers at IMEX America will be either:
Including incentive, business and conference travel agencies, full service incentive houses, conference organizers, sales and promotion agencies, marketing, PR and advertising agencies.
From international or US institutions, federations or associations who organize congresses, conventions and meetings.
Executives within companies involved with meetings, conferences and incentive travel programs. Buyers have responsibility for, or direct influence over, decisions regarding destinations and/or venues.
A series of educational seminars will be held before, during and after the exhibition, led by the industry trade associations. Whether you are from an agency, are a corporate or association buyer, organize events as part of your business travel or marketing plan - you will find a wealth of educational offerings - all free of charge.
