Frankfurt is home of the yearly IMEX exhibition in Germany but also to EVINTRA as our Head Quarter are just around the corner.
This year the MICE Industry took a great step forward on this fair, as new activities around legacy focussed minds on the impact of it. Also new events like Learning Labs and Live Zone were introduced successfully. The Chairman of IMEX Group Ray Bloom described the result of this exhibition as “the most creative and spectacular IMEX yet”.
IMEX’s core element is making connections!
As we have a look at the hard facts, almost 9,000 hosted buyers and visitors attended the fair and in total the visitors had 68,000 appointments to run business!
EVINTRA is also in the lucky position to have a very successful and positive result on IMEX 2018. This year we could exhibit the third time on this fair and we are very glad to be media & buyer program partner but also for the first time share our booth with several premium members.
In a great effort of team work, Andreas Thölken and Andrea Gavilanes accomplished 242 meetings at the booth within the 3 days of show. This is not just awesome but a record for EVINTRA. In total over 1.600 buyers recognized in the EVINTRA network had been present at the fair.
The EVINTRA booth had been shared 6 fabulous premium members in total. We are very pleased to name Blacklane; MR Congress; Helden DMC & Events Greece; NOTA BENE events; Visionarea and Boutimar Travel as our partners for imex 2018.
Special EVINTRA buyer reception
A special night for 50 exclusive buyer guests and partners of EVINTRA. The event was hosted by Chateauform who offered an amazing Castle as event location named ‘Schloss Reinhartshausen’ and Blacklane who also took care of all VIP transfers.
The program included a welcome cocktail before we invited to a special guided private tour around the castle which was finished off with an all-inclusive experience dinner.
But this was not all, imex was another launch pad for our first EVINTRA print edition! The Catalogue which includes all members as well as MICE related topics, events and hosted buyer programs. The next edition will is published in November and first distribute dat ibtm World in Barcelona.
EVINTRA is looking forward to continue this great partnership and we are already planning a the next year’s booth on IMEX, which will even bigger to give more premium members the chance to join us there as well.back
