Held on Monday, May 21st IMEX Association Day will come with a brand-new program, featuring over double the number of educational sessions in 3 specialist tracks for executive, operations and meetings professionals. 25 speakers, including CEOs and Executive Directors of some of the largest associations will contribute to the Association Day, which typically attracts around 300 association executives from over 30 countries. Delegates can choose from single-issue topics in each specialist track, a learning format called "Deep Dive". Additionally an "Ask the expert" clinic will provide one-to-one consultancy on VAT issues. Association Day will end with round table discussions with pre-chosen topics. IMEX calls Association Day a "power packed, high value event" that equally strives to deliver the big picture on broader strategic topics as well as cover niche topics. Just as in past years, there will be an Association Evening on Monday night at the Westin Frankfurt. Registration is free if you are member of one of the following associations (ICCA, AIPC, ASAE, MCI, PCMA, ESEA, IAPCO, Destination Marketing, IAEE)
Power of 10 Research Study
The "Power of 10" also marks a milestone in the 10th anniversary of IMEX. This major new research study, sponsored by the German Convention Bureau (GCB), Messe Frankfurt, CPO Hanser and the Frankfurt Tourist Office, seeks opinions from 10 leaders from 10 key sectors- asking them 10 questions about the meetings’ industry future for the next 10 years. According to the IMEX chairman, Ray Bloom, the "Power of 10" study "will enable us to learn from the past years and help the industry to project forward for the future". The findings will be presented in a festive setting.
IMEX Educational Tracks
Seminars and educational sessions will be held throughout four days from Monday to Thursday, also including an extension of the popular "Campfire" sessions, which are informal educational sessions about PR, social media, interview techniques, personality type theories, meeting design and winning bids, for small groups up to 12 people, facilitated by an industry professional. Also, the Women’s Leadership Forum got a makeover and will be extended over 2 days, treating important issues about leadership in today’s industry.
