Event professionals have travelled en masse to Las Vegas for the sixth annual IMEX America show, taking place from 18-20 October at the Sands Expo.

The pre-show celebrations began on Monday night (17 October) with the return of Site Nite at Omnia Nightclub, Caesars Palace, with more than 1,200 event professionals from the US and beyond enjoying food, drinks and entertainment.

The trade show floor opened on Tuesday morning (18 October) with approximately 3,250 exhibiting companies from more than 139 countries welcoming hosted buyers from around the globe for three days of one-to-one meetings, interactive workshops and networking. The tradition for exhibitors to host extravagant and fun-filled 'happy hours' continued with London & Partners serving gourmet canapes from Smith & Wollensky and the Monaco Government Tourist Office hosting a 'Champagne Happy Hour'.
