Before you apply
Your proposed session must be relevant to one or more of our audience sectors: meetings, events and incentive travel planners and buyers; senior directors or managers from associations, agencies, the corporate sector, the not-for-profit sector, government or other sectors. We also provide specialist education for exhibitors.
Your proposed session must fit into one of our 10 education tracks
- Business skills
- Health and wellbeing
- Personal development
- Creative learning
- General education
- Marketing/social media
- Trends and research
In addition we are particularly interested in receiving sessions on security, contracting and negotiation.
We do not typically compensate speakers for travel or accommodation expenses or pay appearance fees. We see speaking at IMEX as a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself in the meetings and events industry and present your expertise to a captive audience. Where possible we will help you gain added value through marketing, social media, PR and in our publications.
If selected, your session will be included in our education programme which is available on our website, our app, in our Show Planner and on screens at the show.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve presented your proposed session elsewhere before but we do favour fresh ideas, interesting angles and inspiring new perspectives.
No sales pitches
It’s important for you, and for us, that we avoid sales pitches masked as education.
You don’t have to present on your own. Co-presenters are welcome.
