Speaker submissions now open for IMEX in Frankfurt 2017

The IMEX team is inviting speakers and topic experts to submit session proposals for the professional education programme at IMEX in Frankfurt 2017, which takes place 16 – 18 May. 


The sessions, which can be delivered in English or German, should tie in with one of the show’s 10 tracks: Trends and Research, Business skills, Diversity, Health and wellbeing, Personal development, Technology, Creative learning, General education, Marketing/Social media and Sustainability. 


In addition, the IMEX team is particularly interested in receiving proposals on event security, contracting and negotiation skills. 


The renowned education programme at the show is part of the IMEX Group’s commitment to advancing industry standards, supporting meetings and events professionals and showcasing important, emerging trends. The IMEX Group recently defined its mission as: “Our sole aim is to unite and advance the meetings industry – doing everything we can to educate, innovate and help our clients make powerful connections with the right people.” 


The aim of the show’s education programme, which is continuously reviewed and redeveloped in response to attendee feedback, is to provide meetings and events industry professionals of all abilities and experience with new ideas, tools and strategies that benefit their organisations, and their own careers. 


Elisabeth Pine from Pine Communication+Training, who was one of the speakers at IMEX in Frankfurt last year, explains: “I used to come here as a visitor for years, always enjoying the amazing education programme, so it was a real privilege to be able to give back as a speaker. The audience was attentive and appreciative and the networking opportunities fantastic. I’m already looking forward to submitting new session ideas for the upcoming show!”


The closing deadline for speaker submissions is 16 January 2017
