A little more then 3 weeks to go before the international meetings industry will gather in Las Vegas for IMEX America 2012. In the past week the pre-show excitement really gained some momentum, as more and more people join the converstation via #IMEX12. In this post I would like to draw your attention to 3 special events at the IMEX showfloor where I would love to meet you in person!
1. #eventprofs Tweetup
Personally I love staying connected with my friends in the meetings industry via Social Media like Twitter and Facebook. This gets even better when we get the chance to meet each other ‘in real life’! At IMEX Frankfurt I was a proud host of the #EUventprofs Tweetup. And currently plans are being made to have a tweetup with the #Eventprofs at IMEX again. So please join us by filling in this RSVP: http://imexlasvegastweetup.eventbrite.com
In case we do not manage to pick a date that fits us all, we could always turn this into a daily event. Like a ‘campfire’ where we share our coolest findings of the tradeshow. I’ll bring some ‘stroopwafels’, delicious with a cup of coffee or tea!
2. EURO Party for hosted buyers
The European CVB’s and Tourism offices join forces and are pleased to invite hosted buyers to the EURO Party at IMEX America on October 10th at 4:30 pm in the European section on the show floor. Back by popular demand, the “EURO Party” will give you the chance to relax, enjoy a bite to eat, have a drink, and mingle with European destination representatives and their partners. Be sure to take a walk around the area to get stamps for your “EURO Passport” and to discover some typical food and drink, unique performances and other surprises from Germany, Holland, France, Greece, Monaco Switzerland, Turkey, and many more!
