Powered by Swapcard and managed by award-winning creative agency, Smyle, the IMEX BuzzHub offers the global events community multiple chances to learn, share knowledge and network based on an array of professional and personal interests.
The new concept has been crafted following extensive customer research plus dozens of lessons learned from two editions of PlanetIMEX in 2020. IMEX’s agencies, partners and other experts have played an important role in shaping the content and formats on the IMEX BuzzHub.
Visitors can choose from a variety of activities and sessions – all free of charge – and pick options that best fit their business or personal growth ambitions.
Collaborations, connections and community
Monthly ‘Buzz Days’ will take their lead from IMEX’s 12 Commitments for 2021 starting with a day of programming centred on Collaborations, Connections and Community on 12 May.
The first Buzz Day will start at 1500hrs London time with an introduction and welcome by IMEX Group Chairman, Ray Bloom and CEO, Carina Bauer. It will be followed by 20-minute keynotes, intimate campfires with speakers and topic-focused roundtable discussions. The day will close with a heavyweight panel focusing on the role that events play in building and maintaining communities, facilitated by Julius Solaris, Head of Engagement at Swapcard.
The monthly Buzz Days will be interspaced with networking, specialist education, community get togethers plus some fun-filled surprises. IMEX staples, such as the famous IMEXrun, will also feature.
The full programme and speaker line-up for the 12 May Buzz Day will be announced shortly. The IMEX team encourages its partners, buyers and suppliers to use the new platform as a springboard to set themselves up for success in Las Vegas in November. Registration for the IMEX BuzzHub is free of charge and opens very soon.
