New creative dimensions to learning in the Inspiration Hub at IMEX in Frankfurt
There will be plenty of creativity to be discovered among the 170 education sessions at IMEX in Frankfurt from 19 to 21 May.

Creative Learning and a wide variety of innovative General Education sessions will be the focus of two of 10 different tracks brought together at the new Inspiration Hub on the show floor.

The comprehensive range of education strands will also include Business Skills, Marketing and Communication, Risk Management and Compliance, Technology & Social Media and Trends & Research, along with Diversity and Sustainability. A new dedicated Health and Wellbeing track will cover concepts such as mindfulness at events, the importance of good posture and staying healthy while travelling. Among the other initiatives are new early morning deep dive sessions on Business Networking and Building Confidence.

The key feature of the Creative Learning strand is the new Creative Thursday. The last day of the show will feature at least 12 original sessions on thought-provoking subjects such as developing emotional connections in corporate events, why the experience matters and using science to design with confidence. The sessions on ‘Five Ways to Boost Creativity and Innovation …or Kill it’ and ‘Why Chocolate Comes in So Many Different Flavors’ will be particularly engaging and different as they will be presented in a ‘creative play’ format.

On Tuesday and Wednesday there will also be at least 6 creative learning sessions each day including ‘3½ Ways to Effectively Manage People’ and ‘What Makes a 3 Michelin Star Experience?’

The extensive General Education programme will cover topics ranging from reputation and relationship management, public speaking, meeting ROI and face to face communication in the digital age.

The session on ‘Navigating the Corporate Meetings and Incentive Industry as a Young Professional’ is one of many that are designated for each of two levels of experience, Young Professional and Senior Professional. The German sessions also remain extensive with over 30 sessions planned. Overall the Inspiration Hub will use a variety of learning styles and areas including seminar rooms, campfires, the research pod, hot topic tables and meet the expert.

Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group says: “The General Education and Creative Learning tracks and, in particular, Creative Thursday sessions are sure to inspire and reward those who take part in these highly original sessions. They are exciting new additions to our already wide ranging education programme which adds an important dimension to IMEX.”
