After a full year of anticipation, IMEX America will soon be opening its doors for another year. From happy hours to after parties, IMEX America is always buzzing with events both on and off the trade show floor.
Today is Smart Monday powered by MPI. If you are already onsite or on your way to Las Vegas, here are some events you definitely won't want to miss.
Clean the World Hygiene Kits Build
In an initiative that kicked off with a Sustainability Safari at IMEX America 2 years ago, event industry professionals will again have an opportunity to give back to the community by building hygiene kits from recycled products collected and cleaned by Clean the World. Right on the tradeshow floor at Booth 3612, all attendees and exhibitors will be able to participate in this initiative that will continue throughout the show. Completed kits will be donated to The Shade Tree, a shelter in Las Vegas for homeless and abused women and children.
Eurozone Block Party
Every year, the tradeshow floor comes alive when the Eurozone exhibitors throw a big bash right on the tradeshow floor. There is music, dancing and other entertainment and, of course, wine and tasty treats. So stick around, grab your passport, and get it stamped by exhibitors to have a chance at some fabulous prizes and have fun. The party begins at 4:00 and continues until 5:30 on Wednesday, October 15th.
Fresh Dinners are a place to mix mingle and meet event industry professionals who are in the know. Attendees will meet event planners, meeting designers, and facilitators. Cvent Event blog wrote about last year's IMEX Fresh Dinner at Madame Tussauds and this year's event will be just as special.
Fresh Dinners always include experiential and innovative appetizers and cuisine. This year's event will take place at Keep Memory Alive Event Center, designed by architect Frank Gehry, on Tuesday, October 21 from 6 - 9 PM. It's not too late to register. Coaches depart from the Venetian every 10 minutes between 5:30 and 6:00.
