Mike McAllen talks about 10 reasons that grabbed IMEX America Attendees Now (Adults only)
Mike McAllen does a quick recap of my IMEX America experience this year that just happened in Las Vegas. I got my title for this podcast from Tim David who keynoted and was on our IMEX pre show podcasts. It is a quick test. He is a magician and wrote a great book called Magic Words –The science and secrets behind seven words that motivate, engage and influence. IMEX America is an adults only Trade Show which I assume is because of the alcohol served at the networking portions on the show floor.
IMEX America Stats 3,100 companies representing 150 countries exhibited including 80 new booths and 56 expanded booths.
Hosted Buyer program brought a record 3000 buyers from 54 countries to the show.
More than 10,600 people participated in the event.
Smart Monday, powered by MPI, and supported by all sorts of acronym type association partners, IAPCO, ICCA, ASAE, PCMA, HSMAI, DMAI, SITE, GBTA, GMIC and ECM, participated.
