  • Engagement decoded: Using science-based evidence to achieve engagement: In this session, attendees learned about barriers to true audience engagement, and that engagement could and did mean different things to different companies.

    You can expect equally intriguing sessions at IMEX 2024. We’ll update this section with specifics on sessions when they’re available.
  • More than 150 networking opportunities: You will have plenty of chances to expand your network and mix with the industry’s best and brightest via different activities such as dinners and forums, golf tournaments, and even 5km runs!
  • Access to 1000s of buyers and products from North America and worldwide: Exhibiting at IMEX means that you’ll get in front of important buyers, meeting planners and suppliers from every sector of the global meetings industry, which can mean you can get months' worth of business done in just a few days. Just to give you a scale of what’s possible,  IMEX 2023 was attended by 5000+ buyers and led to 80,000+ meetings scheduled. 

All signs point to a highly educational and value-driven experience, that should be one of the top B2B marketing events in 2024 you’d want to attend.
