Previous results from the IMEX and ExpoPlatform partnership

The IMEX Group partnered with ExpoPlatform for IMEX Frankfurt 2023 and launched an all-new online platform with enhanced capabilities to drive buyer-exhibitor connections.

A wide range of custom tools and features were developed to enhance the platform’s value and boost business growth for participants.

Over the course of three days, IMEX Frankfurt 2023 saw more than 11,000 event participants from over 90 countries gather at Messe Frankfurt.

The show witnessed record numbers in terms of buyer-exhibitor engagement. Over 57,000 confirmed meetings were made, of which nearly 48,000 were pre-booked one-on-one meetings.

More than 285,000 unique messages were sent via the platform, while over 74,000 business lead scans were made by exhibitors and buyers on the new IMEX app.

The free QR scanning feature in the app – previously a paid service – was a big hit as it helped generate quick connections and ensured detailed reports of all business leads that were captured. 

Meanwhile, the 12th edition of IMEX America in October 2023 included an upgrade of the event management platform with a range of advanced, powerful tools.

Connections were optimized using meeting and calendar management as well as allowing exhibitors to host group meetings and event spaces.

The interactive floor plan and blue-dot navigation aided a seamless experience around the Mandalay Bay venue for participants, thanks to ExpoPlatform integration with ExpoFP and CrowdConnected.

IMEX America 2023 created new records for participation and engagement at an IMEX event, with CEO Carina Bauer calling it the group’s “biggest ever show”.
