Bruges present with strong delegation at IMEX Frankfurt 2024

From 14 to 16 May, IMEX will take place in Frankfurt. IMEX is the place where the global meeting, event and travel sector comes together during Europe’s largest trade fair. No fewer than 3,883 buyers from 94 countries will make some 57,700 appointments over three days.

The Visit Bruges Convention Bureau cannot be missing from this international MICE fair either. This year, Bruges will present its ‘Visit Bruges’ stand (stand number E-130), measuring no less than 35 m2, where the partners BMCC, Historium, Bruges Beer Experience, Radisson Blu Brugge and Ibis Styles Zeebrugge will also represent our congress city.

Mieke Hoste, alderwoman for tourism and also responsible for the Visit Bruges Convention Bureau: “With this strong delegation, we will be able to showcase Bruges’ congress city assets even better. Our UNESCO World Heritage city not only boasts very well-equipped and sustainable convention centres, but also unique heritage locations where corporate events and dinners can be held in a unique atmosphere. Add to this the expertise of specialists in the domains of healthcare, the port, tourism & culture, ICT and mechatronics and buyers will find many advantages when considering organising their congress or corporate event in Bruges.”

Kathy Van Wambeke, Sales Manager of Visit Bruges Convention Bureau: “Bruges is participating in IMEX with its own stand for the second time in a row. Each time, our appointment book is well filled. By joining forces, we bring a strong story. IMEX also provides space for knowledge sharing and insights into the latest MICE trends. Here, too, we actively participate to detect new opportunities for the future.”
