From 2021 come-back to 2022 bounce-back: IMEX America numbers suggest confidence boost for the industry


By: Hannah Lee | Sep 28, 2022

With over 3,000 global buyers and 3,000+ exhibiting companies already confirmed, IMEX America 2022 is set to be one of its largest editions since its launch in 2011, suggesting a confidence-boosting bounce-back for the global meetings, incentive travel and business events industry.  

With thousands of event professionals set to gather October 10 – 13 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, the show will soon demonstrate its bellwether credentials, giving everyone in the sector an accurate picture of business volumes and pipelines in 2023 and beyond.

Business always takes pride of place at the show - tens of thousands of appointments have already been booked by buyers set to meet suppliers from across the world.

Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group, says: “Our 2021 come-back show was invested with an air of sheer celebration and excitement as the global industry reunited. This year, the business fundamentals are what stand out. If our numbers are anything to go by, then despite strong macro pressures, including inflation and talent shortages, the bounce-back could be even stronger and more robust than forecasts predict.”

IMEX America 2022 takes place at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, and opens with Smart Monday, powered by MPI on Monday October 10, followed by the three-day trade show October 11-13.
