Impressions from IMEX America 2023
Poland, with Warsaw among its representatives, had the honor of showcasing its attractions and opportunities in the meetings sector during IMEX America 2023 in Las Vegas. These prestigious trade shows, organized by the IMEX Group, serve as a key meeting point for MICE industry professionals worldwide. The event offers unparalleled business opportunities, a broad range of training sessions, and networking occasions.
IMEX America is one of the most significant global events dedicated to the meetings industry. Participants have the opportunity to promote their products, destinations, and seek new partners and inspirations for organizing various meetings and events. As announced by IMEX Chairman, Ray Bloom, this year’s IMEX America saw the participation of 12,000 individuals, including over 4,000 buyers. The attendance was 45% higher than the previous year, underscoring the growing significance of this event on the global stage. Notably, 40% of returning exhibitors chose to rent a larger booth space than during the previous edition of the trade show. International exhibitors were present in impressive numbers, with significant representation from North America, hotel chains, Europe, and Asia. A marked increase in participation was also noted among exhibitors from Latin America and the MICE technology sector.
With immense pride, we presented Warsaw and its potential in organizing international meetings and conferences. Together with other representatives, such as Gdansk Convention Bureau and Kraków Convention Bureau, we shared experiences and established new, valuable business contacts.
We extend our gratitude to everyone who visited our booth and to our partners for their joint efforts in promoting Poland on the international arena.
