IMEX Policy Forum 2019, Frankfurt @ InterContinental Frankfurt
May 21 all-day
IMEX Policy Forum 2019, Frankfurt @ InterContinental Frankfurt | Frankfurt am Main | Hessen | Germany

Since 2003, the Policy Forum (formerly Politicians Forum) at IMEX has provided the only high-level event to bring together industry leaders with representatives of governments and government agencies. Government understanding and support is critical to the advancement of the meetings and events industry.

The Forum has evolved over the past 15+ years and hosts not just politicians but a wide variety of policy makers and government influencers. We bring together the meetings world and public policy makers with the aim to influence policy, rather than influence politicians.

The IMEX Policy Forum is built around five elements: Strategy; Advocacy; Development; Engagement; Enlightenment. The overarching aim of the Forum is to act as a catalyst and provide a collaborative global discussion platform critical to the creation of policy that directly benefits our industry.

 

Partners
The Policy Forum is organised by IMEX in collaboration with European Cities Marketing (ECM), the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) and the International Association of Convention Centres (AIPC), under the auspices of the Joint Meetings Industry Council (JMIC).
