IMEX in Frankfurt 2017 is offering a comprehensive programme of free education running across all three days of the trade show, 16 – 18 May, combined with its new EduMonday, 15 May.

EduMonday will combine contemporary learning styles with hot industry topics and the latest personal development teachings. With registration free of charge and open to all, the day will provide insights into event design, future trends and hot new technologies. IMEX’s EduMonday will feature experts from the new Zeus Eventtech Academy, the German Convention Bureau (GCB), Meetology® Masterclasses and Play with a Purpose. IMEX is also offering the Event Design Certificate Programme Level 1 of Mastery as part of a three-year agreement with the Event Design Collective. Roel Frissen and Ruud Janssen, from the Event Design Collective, will deliver The Event Design training. Roel explains: “Events can be demanding for the event owner and the team responsible for delivery. Event Design should be fun, democratic and engaging for everyone involved in order to deliver events of high quality. The Event Design Certificate programme level 1 of Mastery equips teams with a methodology to do just that." A wider programme of free education runs across the three days of the show with close to 150 seminars, including workshops, campfires and bite-sized show-floor education. Participants can choose from carefully selected tracks to create their own bespoke schedule, all designed to help them keep a finger on the pulse of the industry. “We don’t believe in ‘business as usual’ – and are always seeking engaging and effective ways to further our industry,” comments Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group.
