In 2015, IACC is offering members a new way to be involved in IMEX Americas, the leading trade show in the Americas.
Last year over 10,000 attended IMEX and 2,900 were qualified meeting planner buyers participating in 53,000 the pre-scheduled appointments with exhibitors. 70% of buyers were US and 30% from the rest of the world and IMEX today provides the single largest business event in the US to meet industry buyers.
This year IACC members have a brand new opportunity to exhibit and promote their conference center for a fraction of the normal price to exhibit, in the IACC Global Village. Exhibiting members will have their own buyer diary with pre-arranged appointments with matched buyers looking for conference venues in their region.
Members participating in the IACC Global Village at IMEX this year will also be allowed entry into IMEX's Association Event on Monday 13th October, which is a exceptional opportunity for association buyers and venues. For further information and exclusive IACC package rates for IACC members, please email Heidi Lapka in the IACC Chicago Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Spaces are strictly limited, so please act now.
Mark Cooper, IACC's CEO comments, "IMEX is a high profile trade show in the US and we are proud to have partnered with the organisers from the very first year. We are excited to built upon the success of IACC's involvement at IMEX America and to now creating the IACC Global Village for our members to get even more from this key event. We look forward to representing our members and to providing opportunities for those who would like to visit, meet buyers and also attend the great educational sessions."
IACC is primarily a venue-based association, which certifies residential and non-residential meetings and conference focused venues.
The IACC certification is a global badge of honour that is trusted by Meeting Planners and the industry the world over.
