IMEX took place at Messe Frankfurt this week from 19-21 May, with 9,000 buyers, exhibitors and press from the industry flocking to Germany from across the globe for the three-day trade show. IMEX 2015 was the biggest to date, featuring 3,500 exhibiting companies from more than 150 countries, including 55 new stands.

SAP CEO Bill McDermott gave a keynote address at the opening ceremony before the sessions and individual meetings kicked off. Day two of the show saw the IMEX Run take place in the morning, and the IMEX Gala Dinner, including its awards ceremony, take place in the evening. Attendees enjoyed a three-course meal before a live band took to the stage.
