IMEX in Frankfurt, May 19–22, has plenty of new educational opportunities for hosted meeting buyers and other visitors this year. Monday, May 19, offers a full day of education, while Tuesday through Thursday are expo days, with some creative education sessions sprinkled throughout the tradeshow floor.

IMEX week kicks off with Exclusively Corporate @IMEX, a new dedicated corporate planner track that features high-level speakers focused on innovation and creativity. Michelle Mone, one of the top three female entrepreneurs in the U.K., co-owner of Ultimo Brands International, is the keynote, sponsored by London & Partners.

Association Day, which also takes place on Monday, is expected to have a record turnout, according to the organizers. More than 300 delegates are expected to attend the program, which offers three tracks: executive, operations, and meetings staff. Topics range from member engagement and entering new markets to designing events for strategic impact.

Association Evening and Site Nite Europe, two networking events, take place Monday evening.
