IMEX: A conference in review By Dana Jackson
In the 12,000 attendees that were present at this year’s IMEX conference, the Bishop-McCann team walked away with so many unique takeaways from America’s worldwide exhibition for meetings, incentive travel and events. From new hotel security measures, like having to scan room cards at elevators to ensuring your event in case of a natural disaster, this year’s conference was packed with 3,300 exhibitors, 3,200 buyers and endless information.
During the conference I was able to attend workshops on Smart Monday and met with different hotels while other Bishop-McCann representatives met with gifting companies, app companies, media, and travel and meeting companies to learn about and discuss the future of meetings, events and incentive travel.
At the conclusion of the yearly conference, we put our heads together and came up with these top 5 takeaways.
