Timor-Leste in southeast Asia, Pau in southwest France, and Cameroon in Africa are celebrating their entry onto the show floor at IMEX, a worldwide exhibition for incentive travel, meetings, and events April 19-21 at Messe Frankfurt, Germany. Each won a free “Wild Card” spot at the show, competing for the honor with other destinations that have never exhibited at a major meeting and incentive trade show and demonstrated the potential and infrastructure to establish themselves as a leading destination.

Each of the Wild Card winners receives free booth space, accommodations in Frankfurt, and attendance at the show's gala dinner, as well as strategic and tactical advice from a member of the IMEX team.

Previous winners of the competition include Rotorua in New Zealand and Mozambique, Africa.
