The IMEX Group has been shortlisted in two categories at the Exhibition News Awards, taking place on 30th July. The national industry awards, judged by some of the UK’s top event professionals from venues, organisers and agencies, have shortlisted the IMEX Operations team for Best Ops Team and PlanetIMEX for Best One-off or Series of Virtual Events, a new category for this year.

“We’re delighted by this national industry recognition,” explains Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group. “Our Ops team is a real powerhouse with a long history of creating compelling live trade shows, and they’re currently working closely with our industry partners in Las Vegas to deliver an exciting, new-look IMEX America. 

“We’re also proud that PlanetIMEX, our creative and community-centred response to the extraordinary circumstances of 2020, has been nominated in the Virtual Events category. 

“The EN Awards are both timely and significant – showcasing the sheer innovation, passion and commitment shown by event professionals as the industry builds forwards together. Given that IMEX America in November will be our 10th edition, these nominations give us even more reasons to celebrate.”
