G+B at IMEX 2019


With more than 3500 exhibitors from 150 countries, IMEX 2019 took place from May 21 to 23, 2019 at the exhibition grounds in Frankfurt am Main. The trade fair kicked off with the EduMonday on May 20. GAHRENS + BATTERMANN was technology partner of EduMonday and sponsor of She Means Business. The G+B Interactive® team presented itself and its software solutions together with Düsseldorf Convention and the Cologne Convention Bureau.

To kick off the international trade fair for incentive travel, meetings and events, EduMonday was held on May 20 at Kap Europa, Messe Frankfurt’s congress center. Here, IMEX attendees were able to network before the show and participate in free training and networking events. One of the many EduMonday events was She Means Business, a conference on the role of women in the meetings industry. The professional audience, consisting of international meeting and event strategists, joined inspiring guest speakers to discuss the topics of diversity, gender equality and emancipation. As the official technical sponsor of She Means Business, GAHRENS + BATTERMANN provided the entire event technology and took care of the smooth running of the event.

There was positive feedback from the She Means Business organizers for the G+B team’s efforts:

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our colleagues from G+B once again for their great commitment and the super pleasant cooperation. It’s great to work together with full professionals!

The cooperation with the Cologne Convention Bureau and Düsseldorf Convention at IMEX was again a complete success. In addition to the classic media technology, we programmed a raffle for “The Meetropolis” with G+B Interactive® again this year. More than 300 trade fair visitors participated in the raffle, which could be operated via iPads. Many good and constructive conversations with fair visitors and a great team at the booth are the lasting impression of this cooperation.
