IMEX Chairman Ray Bloom described the 2019 show in Frankfurt, which drew to a close on 23 May, as “an outstanding week of business, learning and experiences to stir the imagination”.
The IMEX Chairman claimed the show as the largest ever IMEX, taking into account Hall 9. There had been approximately 4,500 exhibitors and 3,800 hosted buyers, he said.
EduMonday, on the day before the show proper, had transformed the show into a four-day event, Bloom noted, and attracted 1,100 participants.
IMEX CEO Carina Bauer picked that the experiences in the new Discovery Zone and fresh ideas in the Red Lab and the new technology as show stand outs. The social side of the show include a 5km IMEXrun, Association Evening and SITE Nite, while the Gala Dinner saw major industry awards handed out.
