About IMEX America



Your work smarter choice

IMEX America 2024 is a powerhouse show. It’s the most productive, creative, lovingly designed, inclusive, high-value and enjoyable business and learning experience you can give yourself this year. 
And the payback on three days of targeted, intentional business conversations? Priceless.  

Let's go!


IMEX is where the global business events community comes together.

In our exhibit hall, you'll meet exhibitors from hotel groups, event technology providers, convention bureaus, airlines to event management agencies...and many more.

Attendees include meeting planners, event agency heads, association executives, incentive travel buyers and in-house event experts.

IMEX is free to attend—meeting professionals can attend independently or apply to join our unique hosted buyer program. The hosted buyer program offers free and flexible flights, free accommodations and VIP treatment.
