The latest IMEX America has wrapped its most successful event to date.

Taking place at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, IMEX Group reports an estimated 14,000 attendees participated in this year’s event generating an overall economic impact of more than US$20 million. The show, which celebrated its ninth year in Las Vegas, included more than 3500 exhibitors representing more than 150 countries. In total, IMEX Group estimates a total of 76,000 individual and group appointments in 2019.

“Every year we strive to be our own competition, to push ourselves to deliver richer experiences, better education and, of course, a really strong business pipeline for our exhibitors,” said IMEX Group chairman Ray Bloom.

“Our partners keep rising to the occasion too. We’ve seen some spectacular booths and activations this year and are delighted to see so many exhibitors aligning with our annual Talking Point and using it so innovatively each year.
