IMEX America is back in business.
IMEX Group has announced the first exhibitors to sign-up for the show, which will run November 9-11, 2021 at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, as well as the opening of hotel room blocks.
“IMEX America is, at its heart, a living marketplace so we’re delighted our exhibitors are ready to get down to business again at our face-to-face event. It feels so good to be welcoming them back!” said Carina Bauer, CEO, IMEX Group. “We know many suppliers and buyers are hungry for a carefully crafted, safe and confident in-person experience and our teams are already busy planning traffic flows, arrival journeys, registration guidelines and more.”
The early bird exhibitors include destinations such as Arizona, Atlantic City, Greater Birmingham, Los Cabos, Monaco and Peru along with cruise (Amadeus River Cruises, Carnival Cruises) and hotel companies (Dorchester Collection, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts, Loews Hotels, Montage, Omni Hotels and more).
It’s expected that the city of Las Vegas will be busy in November, so IMEX encourages exhibitors and attendees to book hotel rooms soon. Through IMEX’s partnership with MGM Resorts there is a range of price points and properties available on the strip with rooms starting at $90US per night.
“Some things are truly worth waiting for and we can’t wait to welcome the business events community back to IMEX America,” said Bauer. “Due to the circumstances in which we’re all operating we’ve started planning even earlier than usual. We’ll soon be publishing our first set of safety guidelines and, although these will change as the weeks move on and official advice changes, we’re intent on being open, honest and consistent with all our communications so no-one’s left in any doubt. Our landmark 2021 show will have a fresh look and feel at Mandalay Bay so we’re also planning some exciting new features which we’ll announce closer to the show.”
IMEX America 2021 will be the tenth edition of the show and its first at Mandalay Bay.
