What to expect at IMEX Frankfurt

Taking place from 31 May to 2 June, IMEX Frankfurt will be packed full of meetings and content, with some new additions for 2022.

IMEX Frankfurt is returning to the Messe Frankfurt again this year, with a packed agenda of networking, education and experiences. Thousands of delegates and exhibitors will descend on the German city between the 31 May and 2 June to meet, learn and make connections.

Educational sessions this year will focus on a multitude of topics including D&I, wellbeing, trends, professional development, tech, sustainability and purposeful recovery. Highlights include a Policy Forum, bringing policy makers together with influential industry leaders; the MPI Future Leaders forum; and SITE Night, raising funds for the SITE Foundation while networking with fellow SITE members and industry colleagues. There will also be a plethora of experiences including Cim clubbing and a gala dinner and awards night and a dedicated Association Social.

New for this year is the IMEX-EIC People and Planet Village, sharing how the show is reducing its environmental impact and supporting the local community. Exhibitors are being encouraged to exhibit sustainably and visitors are being asked to take a People & Planet Pledge to support sustainability and DEI.

A new wellness focus introduces the Listening Lab to allow delegates to experience what it means to be truly heard, to grow forwards in uncertain times, and to develop their own listening superpower. The show is bringing back the Be Well Lounge and inviting participants to take part in the traditional 5km IMEXrun.
