With a record 3,300 exhibiting companies the IMEX show floor represents a truly global showcase of suppliers, including all of the world’s largest hotel groups, mature and mid-sized cities from across North America, Europe, South America, Russia, India, China and Africa, destination marketing companies, convention bureaus and agencies. The number of incentive travel and promotional incentive exhibitors has also increased.

The seventh edition of IMEX America opened earlier today at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas. Although the preshow week was marked by tragedy in the city, from the moment the doors opened on the leading trade show for the US and global meetings industry, it was clear that North American and international planners, executives and suppliers had turned out in force.
