The Munich Convention Bureau at IMEX America in Las Vegas

IMEX America is the largest and most important trade fair on the North American continent for the global MICE industry. It takes place from 11 to 13 October 2022 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas and sets the pace for business on an international level. Taking part is of course a must for the Munich Convention Bureau as well.

Suppliers and buyers from all areas of the MICE industry meet at the award-winning trade fair. Last year - despite the pandemic conditions - 3,420 trade visitors attended IMEX America, of which more than 2,600 were hosted buyers from 49 countries, and informed themselves about the services and products of the 2,200 exhibitors from over 200 countries.

In addition to interesting exhibitors, IMEX in Las Vegas also offers a four-day programme of professional development. From Smart Monday, powered by MPI, to the Association Leadership Forum, innovations and advice will be shared here - helpful for everyone in the industry. The educational programme is supported by industry-leading associations and green meetings experts, among others.

Inspiration and lots of networking

The exhibitors at IMEX America present everything you need for an event, from exciting locations in the world's major cities like Munich to the latest event technology. There is a lot of inspiration for visitors to experience, numerous new ideas from experts and different innovations are presented and the networking opportunities are particularly diverse.

The participating partners of the Munich Convention Bureau benefit from the pre-arranged appointments with planners. In addition to the presence of global decision-makers with great purchasing power and exhibitors from all over the world, the highlights of IMEX America are, above all, the many opportunities for face-to-face encounter.

Presenting Bavarian MICE know-how

The Munich Convention Bureau is using the slogan #simplymunich and #simplyyourpartner at IMEX Las Vegas to promote the diverse MICE offerings in the Bavarian capital. In addition, the staff at stand E1932 will provide information about the most successful recent events, among other things. Besides the conferences and symposia, the Munich Convention Bureau has even more tangible information for trade fair visitors.

For example, upcoming hotel openings such as the Marriott City West are among the topics. A new location for incentives and other events is the high-tech golf experience SevenTees: in the golf simulators you can hold team-building tournaments and end the evening relaxing on the 200 square metre roof terrace.

 

Nine partners of the Munich Convention Bureau will be present at IMEX Las Vegas

Representatives of several hotels will be at the Munich stand. They all offer an excellent infrastructure for MICE events. For example, The Charles Hotel of the British group Rocco Forte Hotels: The 5-star superior hotel near the main railway station has 160 rooms and seven conference areas. Directly in the city centre is also the Hotel Bayerischer Hof, which, among other events, has always hosted the famous Munich Security Conference. The Platzl Hotel near Marienplatz also presents itself in Las Vegas together with its sister hotel, the Marias Platzl Hotel on Mariahilfplatz.

The listed hotel building of the Sofitel Munich Bayerpost impresses with architectural class, while design meets comfort in the 396 rooms, 20 conference rooms and the famous Nymphenburg banquet hall. Visitors will also learn all there is to know about the Marriott Hotels: the centrally located Four Points by Sheraton Munich Arabellapark with its 446 spacious rooms combines Bavarian charm and timeless design with local elements; from Munich's highest spa, guests can also enjoy a fantastic view over the English Garden to the Alps.

The Westin Grand Munich is located directly opposite and, in addition to 627 rooms and suites, also offers 21 meeting rooms including the 850-square-metre ballroom and several large foyer areas, which are ideal for events with up to 1,050 people. Centrally located right next to the main station, the Aloft Munich offers a productive working atmosphere with its Tactic Meeting Rooms and is perfect for those looking for a dynamic and lively stay in Munich. The Munich Marriott Hotel is located in the Schwabing district with its newly renovated rooms and stylish suites as well as various event facilities such as a large ballroom.

Not far from here, the Courtyard Munich City Center offers a symbiosis of creatively designed event spaces, 248 comfortable rooms and outstanding culinary delights - the ideal space for a successful stay in the heart of Munich. The 348-room Munich Marriott Hotel is located in the close-to-nature Schwabing district in the immediate vicinity of the English Garden. In addition to its ideal location, its event area features 10 rooms in contemporary design, which can accommodate up to 858m² and 400 people.

Situated exactly between the airport and the city, the Courtyard by Marriott Munich Garching completes the city hotels of the Marriott Group in Munich. Only opened last year in 2021, it is conveniently located near the Allianz Arena and offers 256 bright rooms as well as an event room. For those who want to avoid a trip into the city and instead stop in comfort directly after landing, the Munich Airport Marriott Hotel in Freising offers 252 rooms with Bavarian design accents as well as 18 meeting rooms on 1300m² of space.

Best locations for events of all kinds

Three very special venues in the Bavarian capital present themselves in the USA: Messe München offers plenty of space for every event and scores with four ultra-modern locations, some of which can be combined: the Trade Fair Center Messe München, the ICM - International Congress Center Messe München, the CCN - Conference Center North Messe München and the MOC - Event Center Messe München.

The new Science Congress Center Munich in the north of the city offers a total of 2,400 square metres of event space and the Olympic Park Munich is not only perfect for sporting events such as the so successful European Championships in August 2022, but also for numerous other events, conferences and incentives.

Planning incentives and implementing trips

For the implementation and planning of travel for incentives, conferences or events, the Munich-based destination management agency "Welcome Destination Management Travel GmbH" is on site. The agency offers professional destination management with a focus on quality, innovation and experience orientation.
