IMEX Frankfurt cancels but organisers optimistic for November IMEX America

Although IMEX Frankfurt is cancelled organisers are optimistic for the November show "We are very confident that we’ll be able to deliver a successful IMEX America in Las Vegas from 9-11 November"

Regent Exhibitions, organisers of meetings industry IMEX events have announced the cancellation of up coming IMEX Frankfurt. “It is with regret that we announce the cancellation of IMEX in Frankfurt 2021, due to take place at Messe Frankfurt from 25 – 27 May.” The business stated in a press release this week.

The announcement comes after the cancellation of  IMEX in Frankfurt and IMEX America last year. “We hoped 2021 would see the early recovery of the industry and the IMEX shows. We still believe wholeheartedly that a resurgence will come, but sadly we do not believe it will happen in time for us to deliver a strong and successful event in May.”

However, the organisers are upbeat for IMEX America, which is due to take place later this year in November.

“The vaccine roll-out and improvements in rapid testing programmes give us great confidence for the prospects of our industry and of travel in general. We are very confident that we’ll be able to deliver a successful IMEX America in Las Vegas from 9-11 November; as well as the 20th anniversary edition of IMEX in Frankfurt in 2022 (26-28 April).” state the organisers.
