Visitors to Frankfurt encouraged to ‘Be Well at IMEX’

A new wellbeing focus introduced at this year’s IMEX in Frankfurt is set to help buyers to stay healthy and rejuvenated during their busy days at the show. The ‘Be Well at IMEX’ initiative taking place throughout the show, 19 – 21 May, will help everyone attending the show feel refreshed and revived, giving them the chance to try out some of the latest wellbeing activities being adopted in the workplace today.

The Inspiration Hub, the centre of the extensive education programme at IMEX, has a dedicated health and wellbeing track offering a packed programme of eight sessions each day. These sessions cover mindfulness in events, work life balance, the importance of good posture and staying healthy while travelling. Buyers will also pick up tips on how to adopt ‘slow meetings’, a growing trend that will be explored in bite-size discussions with perspectives from neuroscience, power of silence, and mindfulness. As well as refreshing the mind, the body is also catered for with many exhibitors offering healthy snacks and smoothies.

In addition a new Meditation Room offers daily classes run by InnerSense, covering yoga, relaxation and guided meditation to help attendees re-energise between appointments. The room is open to all and will be the perfect space for time out during a busy day at the show.

Visitors looking for an energetic start to their day can join other IMEX participants on a 5km street circuit run on the Wednesday morning (20 May). Sponsored by the Olympic city of Rio de Janeiro, the scenic IMEXrun takes participants along the River Main offering a beautiful view of Frankfurt. Beginning at 7am, the run will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes and participants can then enjoy a healthy Brazilian breakfast in the finishing area – all before the show opens at 10am. The IMEXrun concept was developed by sports by tlc, an event specialist that is active in Brazil, Portugal and Spain and who are inspired by healthy lifestyle trends and the unifying power of sports.

Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group, explains:
“Wellbeing was one of the four key trends that we identified at the start of the year and it’s clearly a topic that’s making waves in the industry, particularly with the level of travel and long hours that meeting professionals experience as a part of their day-to-day work. Our initiative, ‘Be Well at IMEX’, offers both buyers and exhibitors numerous ways in which they can embrace the wellbeing theme and incorporate it into both their professional and personal life.”

IMEX 2015 – ALLE ZEICHEN STEHEN AUF WACHSTUM

February 2, 2015

IMEX 2015 – ALLE ZEICHEN STEHEN AUF WACHSTUM

Frankfurt, den 02. Februar 2015 Bald ist es wieder soweit und die IMEX öffnet vom 19. bis zum 21. Mai 2015 in Frankfurt ihre Tore. Die positive Prognose für die diesjährige Messe, die die IMEX Gruppe heute veröffentlicht, deutet auch auf die gute Entwicklung der MICE-Branche (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions und Events) hin.

Neue Messestände und vergrößerte “Wiederkehrer” – viele neue Inspirationen und Eindrücke
Auch in diesem Jahr dürfen sich die Besucher der IMEX auf eine ganze Reihe von Neuerungen und weiter entwickelten Initiativen sowie auf eine Vielzahl neuer Aussteller freuen. So sind für 2015 bereits über 20 neue Messestände fest gebucht. Diese stammen aus allen fünf Kontinenten sowie aus allen Bereichen der Meetings- und Incentivebranche darunter Hotels, Destinationen, Fluggesellschaften und Technologie-Anbieter. Zudem haben viele der wiederkehrenden Aussteller ihre Stände weiter vergrößert.

Vergrößertes Hosted Buyer Programm mit noch mehr Serviceleistungen 
Auf die positive Branchenentwicklung und das zunehmende Interesse internationaler Eventplaner an der IMEX reagiert die Show und bringt in diesem Jahr 34 neue Hosted Buyer Gruppen nach Frankfurt. Die Teilnehmer kommen u.a. aus  Frankreich, UK, dem Mittleren Osten, Asien und den USA. Auch in 2015 wird die IMEX die beliebten zusätzlichen Serviceleistungen für Hosted Buyer anbieten und so für ein rundum gelungenes Messeerlebnis sorgen. So wurde der im letzten Jahr erstmals vorgestellte und schon jetzt sehr beliebte “Concierge Service” noch weiter ausgebaut und um zusätzliche Leistungen angereichert. Zudem arbeitet die IMEX laufend an der Weiterentwicklung des “Appointment Systems”, so dass Einkäufer ab sofort ihre Messetermine noch einfacher selbst mit den gewünschten Ausstellern vereinbaren können. Eine weitere Vereinfachung besteht darin, dass letzjährige Besucher und Medienvertreter ihre Daten bei der Anmeldung wieder abrufen und so wertvolle Zeit im Registrierungsprozess einsparen können.

Aus- und Weiterbildungsprogramm geht mit vielen Neuerungen an den Start
Auch in diesem Jahr wird die IMEX ihrer Rolle als Innovationstreiber der Meetings- und Eventbranche gerecht und präsentiert gleich mehrere Neuheiten und Formate.

So konnten in diesem Jahr Experten erstmalig deutschsprachige Vorträge einreichen und sich so auf einen Platz als Referent bewerben. Im Jahr 2015 liegt der Fokus auf insgesamt zehn Themen u.a. aus den Bereichen Neue Technologien / Social Media, Marketing und Kommunikation, Marktforschung und Trends, Nachhaltigkeit sowie Fachkompetenzen.

Einen ganzen Tag widmet die IMEX mit dem “Creative Thursday” am dritten und letzten Messetag dem Thema der kreativen Veranstaltungsplanung und –organisation. In mehreren Workshops und Seminaren erfahren die Teilnehmer alles, was die eigenen Veranstaltungen noch innovativer und  wirkungsvoller macht.

Gleich zwei neue Formate bedienen die spezifischen Bedürfnisse der Bracheneinsteiger und der Branchenprofis: Sowohlfür “Senior Planners” wie auch für “Young Professionals” wird es eigene Workshops und Seminare geben.

Die beliebten themenspezifischen IMEX-Touren werden auch in diesem Jahr wieder veranstaltet.

Zudem wird es am Montag und Dienstag vor Messebeginn zwei Intensiv-Workshops zu den Themen “Business Networking” sowie “Sebstvertrauen im Job” geben.

Exclusively Corporate
Der Montag der 18. Mai – der Tag vor Messebeginn  – ist auch in 2015 zwei der wichtigsten messebegleitenden Events der IMEX gewidmet. Die Veranstaltung “Exclusively Corporate@IMEX”, die vor zwei Jahren mit großem Erfolg erstmals präsentiert wurde, findet in diesem Jahr im Kempinski Hotel Gravenbruch statt. Diese hochwertige und exklusive Veranstaltung ist speziell maßgeschneidert auf die Anforderungen internationaler “Corporate Meeting Planner”. Wertvolles Branchen- und Praxiswissen für Experten von Experten vermittelt – das ist das Motto dieses einzigartigen Branchenevents. Neben der Wissensvermittlung liegt der besondere Mehrwert dieser Veranstaltung auf dem Knüpfen neuer Kontakte und dem Austausch der Experten untereinander.

Association Day & Evening 
Der bekannte und beliebte “Association Day” findet in diesem Jahr im neuen “Kap Europa” – dem beeindruckenden neuen Kongresshaus der Messe Frankfurt – statt. Diese Veranstaltung bringt Jahr für Jahr internationale Verbändeplaner aller Branchen und Kontinente im Rahmen eines außergewöhnlichen Programmes, gespickt mit Networking-Möglichkeiten, Expertengesprächen und Weiterbildungseinheiten, zusammen.

NEU: Wellness-Bereich auf der IMEX – „be well at IMEX“
Schon immer hat die IMEX großen Wert auf den “Wohlfühlfaktor” ihrer Besucher und Aussteller gelegt. Dieser Anspruch trägt nun weitere Früchte: Erstmals stellt die IMEX die gesamte Messe unter das Motto “sich wohlfühlen auf der IMEX”. In einem “Raum der Ruhe” wird es während der gesamten Messe Meditations- und Yoga-Einheiten geben – als idealen Ausgleich zum turbulenten und geschäftigen Messegeschehen. Weiterhin geplant ist ein “Wellness-Guide”, der Besuchern und Ausstellern wertvolle Gesundheits- und Enstpannungs-Tipps vermittelt.

IMEX Group Chairman Ray Bloom fasst die Entwicklungen und Prognosen der IMEX 2015 zusammen: ”Die große Nachfrage von Ausstellern wie auch Besuchern deutet auf ein weiteres Wachstum der IMEX Frankfurt in diesem Jahr hin. Wir werden auch künftig massiv in die Weiterentwicklung der IMEX in Form von neuen Formaten, Serviceleistungen und Ideen investieren, um so die bestmögliche Plattform für ein perfektes und erfolgreiches Messeerlebnis für all unsere Besucher, Aussteller und Partner zu bieten. Auch für dieses Jahr haben wir uns wieder eine Menge an spannenden Innovationen und Neuerungen einfallen lassen. Wir freuen uns darauf, alle im Mai auf der IMEX 2015 in Frankfurt willkommen zu heissen.”
