The IMEX 2023 Talking Point – Human Nature – provides a steer for education and activity at IMEX Frankfurt, taking place 23 to 25 May. Running as a thread throughout the show, the Talking Point celebrates the innate human need to meet face to face and its ensuing benefits, from driving business growth to creating lifelong, global connections.
According to a press release, the result is a new set of education tracks reflecting the way people now live and work – attendees can “pick and mix” across these tracks to suit their skill requirements.
Event Marketing is a brand-new addition, while Technology and Innovation; Trends and Research and Experience Design are tried and tested tracks that are “always in demand”.
A new Business Practices track will include the Event Planner Toolkit while a People and Planet track will specifically address Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), Professional and Personal Development, Leadership, Culture and Engagement, Wellbeing and Sustainability.
The education programming – there are more than 150 events altogether – has reportedly been crafted in a variety of formats, from solo presenters to duos and panels, workshops, co-labs and ideation sessions, all designed to recognise and serve diverse learning approaches. “Tangible, practical takeaways are front and centre to encourage attendees to immediately apply what they’ve learned in their business meetings the same day”, the release reads.
The full range of speakers and sessions are now live online – attendees can dive into the listing to plan their learning time at the show. The education at IMEX in Frankfurt is free of charge and open to all. Full details can be found here. Find the programme highlights in this PDF file.
