IMEX America set to be a global ‘homecoming for the industry’ - first international event to open after US travel ban lifts

IMEX welcome back

By: Hannah Lee | Nov 1, 2021

“IMEX America is the very first international event to open once the US travel ban lifts on November 8, and by bringing together a large cross-section of the global and US business events community at the show, we hope to pave the way for the sector’s regeneration and recovery.” Carina Bauer looks ahead to IMEX America, taking place November 9 – 11 in Las Vegas.

With just under two weeks to go until IMEX America, hundreds more global buyers, exhibitors and industry professionals have now confirmed their attendance:

  • Over 3,000 global buyers are registered to attend

  • Over 2,200 exhibiting companies, from destinations, venues, hotel groups and technology providers, are also confirmed.

Expanded exhibitor line-up

The recent US travel announcement has significantly strengthened the European presence at the show with exhibitors including Holland, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, Scandinavia and Spain. The show floor spans all four corners of the earth with Australia, Korea, Japan, New Zealand and Singapore among the Asia-Pacific countries along with other global heavyweights including Dubai, Morocco and South Africa. They join the US, Canada and Latin America to create a truly international reach. These global destinations are proving popular, with many exhibitor schedules filling fast shortly after diaries went live.

Watch Carina and the IMEX Team preview the show and provide an insight into the planning process in the latest Conversations with Carina.

IMEX America takes place 9 – 11 November at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas with Smart Monday, powered by MPI, on 8 November. To register – for free – click here. For more details about accommodation deals and to book, click here.
