What is new for IMEX 2021

Each edition of IMEX Frankfurt has a special talking point, revealing the aspects of a rising or already influential trend through the trade fair programme. The talking point of the next IMEX will be Nature, which will put under the spotlight topics such as the circular economy and the nature's principles in the business world. The ways in which they transform the incentive travel industry will be explored in depth. This will enable IMEX attendees to gain knowledge and find inspiration to create visionary, inclusive and sustainable business events.
In view of the ongoing developments related to the COVID-19 spread, Regent Exhibitions made the decision to cancel IMEX in 2020. IMEX Frankfurt 2021 will be held as planned.
