The second day of IMEX America 2023, the renowned international trade show for the meetings and events industry, commenced with an exhilarating burst of energy as more than 400 enthusiastic participants eagerly registered for the annual IMEXrun.
This travel trade event, which offers a unique blend of exercise and networking, took participants on a 5-kilometer route that provided an invigorating perspective of the iconic Las Vegas landscape, encompassing the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign and the sparkling Strip.
IMEXrun is a beloved tradition of the IMEX America event and is not only an opportunity for attendees to stay active but also serves as a symbol of the dynamic and vibrant nature of the meetings and events industry.
This year’s IMEXrun was made possible through the generous sponsorship of the Netherlands Board of Tourism & Conventions (NBTC) and the Amsterdam Convention Bureau, reflecting the international reach and support for the event.
Additionally, the event was powered by PRA in partnership with IMEX, underlining the collaborative spirit and commitment of industry leaders to make this event a success.
As participants pounded the pavement, they had the chance to engage in meaningful conversations, establish connections, and forge new relationships. The IMEXrun serves as a microcosm of what IMEX America is all about—building bridges, creating opportunities, and fostering connections within the meetings and events community.
The IMEXrun not only energized attendees for a packed day of business meetings, networking sessions, and educational seminars at IMEX America but also showcased the industry’s resilience and determination to adapt to new challenges while remaining connected and united.
As the runners’ strides echoed through the Las Vegas morning, it was evident that IMEX America was off to a promising start, with the vibrant spirit of the industry propelling it forward.
