This year's IMEX in Frankfurt trade show will feature 170 education sessions across 10 different education tracks, including new education tracks devoted to "Health and Wellbeing," "Diversity," and "Sustainability," organizer the IMEX Group announced today.
Sample sessions from the new tracks include "Yoga in Business Clothes" and "Using Mindfulness to Get the Most Out of Events" in the Health and Wellbeing track; "Impact of Gender and Generational Shifts in the Meetings Industry" and "The Young Leading the … Not So Young" in the Diversity track; and "Innovative Approaches to Corporate Social Responsibility" and "What's New and Green in Sustainable Meeting Venues and Hotels?" in the Sustainability track.
All 170 education sessions will be concentrated in a new, education-focused area on the trade show floor. Known as The Inspiration Hub, it will feature spaces to accommodate a variety of learning styles and formats, including seminar rooms, campfires, a research pod, hot topic tables, a "meet the expert" area, and creativity "zones."
Said IMEX Group CEO Carina Bauer, "The developments and additional elements of our education program together add exciting new dimensions that will inspire, engage, and satisfy many buyers and exhibitors, whether they are looking to gain CMP/CEU and ISES Points, catching up on technology trends, or exploring the latest sustainability solutions. There is something for everyone, whatever their preferred learning style or interest."
