It’s been 16 Years since I am in Hospitality Industry. I have been attending different Exhibitions and Conferences in different parts of the world. IMEX was one of the most important events which was in my TO DO list.
This summer in May 2017, I managed to attend IMEX in Frankfurt, Germany. What is IMEX? It is a platform where professionals meet either to sell their meeting facilities or a Corporate Buyer to find meeting place and all is available under one roof. Well IMEX has explained it with great content in the About Us section in its website.
Even though Hotels do sell their facilities in the exhibitions like WTM, ATM or ITB in different parts of the world but IMEX is focused on single line agenda of booking and organizing worldwide meetings. It was an amazing experience throughout IMEX Journey of 3 days in Frankfurt. Starting from the registration to collecting badge at the arrival to one to one meeting till end of the day was handled like a very well managed organization.
Shuttle buses from airport to all prime hotels were great service for the attendees. The IMEX staff was always welcoming with smiling face and proactively assisting the guests to meet all the needs.
At the entrance 2 very helpful counters were available. One was providing information for all IMEX related questions and second was guiding the guests for all Frankfurt City related information.
The Exhibition layout was very helpful and all respective pavilions were very easy to find. The hospitality of each stand was unforgettable. Each country was attracting the guests with their unique style. Turkish Sweets and Italian Coffee were keeping all the attendees fresh from time to time. Other countries and hotels had their own style of welcoming with traditional bites or chocolates. The souvenir of different stands was given to the attendees as a gift to remember.
The most interactive part was the Inspiration Hub where number of topics were discussed covering all aspects of choice starting from Business Skills, Meetings & Conferences to Security etc.
IMEX Awards has always been talk of the town in order to recognize the extra ordinary contribution of Industry Professionals.
To cop up with the latest updates, DoubleDutch had provided very helpful Mobile App. It was great paperless tool for the guests to organize their agenda and find the respective stand through the provided map in the App.
IMEX had provided daily updates through their printed material as well. It was innovative to provide places for the recycling of unwanted material and leave the badge while leaving. GO GREEN and Sustainability concept
I would like to thank IMEX for their great Hospitality with their welcome and farewell videos. 100 Pictures sent by email was an amazing journey to recapture the wonderful three days. Thanks once again #IMEX #Frankfurt @IMEX_Group @IMEXSocialTeam
