Registration for IMEX Frankfurt 2023 continues tracking up, reports IMEX Group, the show’s organizer.

As of April 13th, 3,000 buyers from more than 60 countries have registered to attend the show, which runs May 23-25 at Messe Frankfurt in Germany.

The surge in registration is complemented by a strong exhibitor presence, many of whom will be announcing refurbishments, new properties, product innovations, new technologies and more.

The show’s line-up of exhibitors spans the globe. It includes CVBs, DMCs, hotels and other industry suppliers from Europe, North and South America, and Asia.

Sarawak, the largest of Malaysia’s 13 states will have its own stand for the first time and will also be joined by the region’s tourism minister. Hotel groups Accor, IHG Hotels & Resorts, NH Hotels and Radisson are expanding their presence as are a number of destinations, including Boston, Georgia, Los Cabos and Morocco.

Registration includes access to extensive education program

IMEX Frankfurt’s education programming centers on its 2023 Talking Point – Human Nature. Attendees will have the chance to learn and embrace skills such as public speaking, experiential design, emotional intelligence, leadership, focused attention and more. There will also be several evergreen sessions, including presentations on contract negotiations, talent acquisition and management, incentive programming, and food and beverage programming.

An extensive, free program of 150 educational and networking events starts with education for specialist audiences the day before the show opens (Monday, May 22). This is followed by six tracks of general learning that run Tuesday to Thursday on the show floor’s Inspiration Hub. Event Marketing is a new track. It joins the tried-and-tested Technology and Innovation, Trends and Research and Experiential Design tracks.

In addition, a new Business Practices track will include the popular Meeting Planner Toolkit while a People and Planet track will address Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), Professional and Personal Development, Leadership, Culture and Engagement, Wellbeing and Sustainability.

“While doing business and powering industry growth sit at the heart of our forthcoming show, IMEX Frankfurt is designed to deliver an enriching, broad experience that ripples further than the eye can see,” said Carina Bauer, CEO, IMEX Group. “We recognize that creating experiences, not events, is more important than ever and that people in our global industry also want to feel connected, revived and re-inspired. We’re happy to lead the way and play our part.”
