How to Qualify and Apply

  1. Singapore 5

    Buyers are invited to attend IMEX by their intermediaries. Each intermediary sends their clients a specific registration link to fill in. Buyers fill in a form that asks them for the below info –, our team use this information to  ensure that each buyer that we host has genuine business for a variety of our exhibitors – either by showing us business that they have placed in the past and/ or showing us details of events that they are planning to discuss with exhibitors at the show:

    Buyers must have the potential for researching, organising, influencing or making budgetary decisions for international events within the MICE industry.

    Agency & Corporate Buyers Qualification Criteria

    On the application form we ask for the following details...

    • full details of 3 events which took place outside buyer's home country
      • 2 must be past events occurring within the last 18 months
      • the 3rd can either be another past event from the last 18 months or an upcoming event which will occur in the next 12 months. Future events must be booked/confirmed events - not 'to-be-decided'
      • buyers from outside Europe, where possible, should submit at least one European event

    Association Buyers Qualification Criteria

    On the application form we ask for the following details...

    • full details of 3 events which took place outside buyer's home country
      • 2 must be past events occurring within the last 3 years.
      • the 3rd can either be another past event from the last 3 years or an upcoming event which will occur in the next 3 years

    First our intermediaries check the application form and then they send it on to IMEX . Sometimes it might be necessary for us to ask further questions of buyers. Please bear with us – we are just trying to ensure that each and every buyer we host is absolutely a right match for our exhibitors.
