Politicians Forum

The innovative and pioneering Politicians Forum at IMEX in Frankfurt, Tuesday 21st May 2013

There is a story that needs to be told about the benefits of business events and meetings to a destination and we invite you to bring your politicians to IMEX to hear it.

The IMEX Politicians Forum, arguably the most important and influential event of its kind, is committed to stating the meetings industry’s case for greater recognition of the contribution the industry makes, not only to enrich destinations tourism economy but it’s vital role in generating employment, developing trade, driving exports, staging creative enterprise, spreading knowledge, stimulating culture, regenerating cities and nurturing local communities.


Held each year during IMEX in Frankfurt, the Politicians Forum welcomes 120 industry leaders including 35 economic policy leaders from across the globe, who come together to explore ways they can mutually benefit from the business events and meetings industry and share best practice.

We invite you to bring your influential politicians to IMEX, to see the industry at work, the competition you face and the benefits this industry can bring to your cities and nations.

We have produced a 3 minute powerful video to introduce IMEX, the Politicians Forum and economic benefits that lie behind business events and meetings. We encourage you to use this video to invite your politician to attend IMEX and the Politicians Forum.
