The People and Planet Village at IMEX America

One silver lining of the pandemic has been renewed focus on physical and mental health. This was evident at IMEX America, where the People and Planet Village took center stage.

IMEx provides an open-access platform for analyzing the effect of amino acid variants on physical protein interactions. It contains algorithms for comparing overlapping multiple data samples on CDR3, V-(D)J and rearranged V-(D)-J gene combinations.


Whether you’re an agency director, an association executive, a meeting planner or an in-house corporate event expert IMEX connects you with your global industry peers. The four-day program is bursting with specialist education, networking events and more, both on and off the show floor.

IMEX Frankfurt 2024 features a wide variety of learning formats, from campfire peer-to-peer sessions to formal seminars and Expert clinics. And of course, you can also take advantage of the extensive onsite and city events programme.

John Nawn from The Perfect Meeting recommends you set clear goals for yourself when you arrive at IMEX to get the most out of your time there. Using a network mapping tool, create a list of the key people you want to meet, then plan your itinerary and attend the events that will help you make those connections. Network with purpose, and you’ll leave IMEX with valuable business contacts and fresh ideas for your next event.


IMEX America’s education program blends knowledge, entertainment and clever new formats that appeal to seasoned veterans and industry first-timers alike. More than 150 events—from deep dives to one-to-one sessions, hot topic tables and a host of activities in the Inspiration Hub—will provide a roadmap for attendees to navigate the trends that will shape their business next year.

Coordinating the education program is Head of Programming Tahira Endean, a self-described “total event nerd” who’s fed ideas for speakers and hot topics year-round from IMEX partners, exhibitors and staff members who travel the world to bring back fresh perspectives. As the show continues to evolve, Endean is taking a cue from the latest trends in experience design: “The demands are constantly evolving so we always start with a clean slate.” .
