Day two of IMEX saw the introduction of the Paul Flackett IMEX Academy Awards, newly named in tribute to the former IMEX managing director who passed away last year.

The awards aim to recognise the outstanding contribution and professional legacy of three impressive individuals to the global meetings and incentive travel industry.

The gathering was rounded off with live music from Song Division Sound Machine.

The winner of the IAPCO Innovation Award commends the most creative and high achieving young member of staff at an IAPCO member company. It was presented to Amber Chen, assistant vice president at GIS, Taiwan for her work in transforming a local neighbourhood into an ecomobile community and educating children on the benefits of ecomobility.

IMEX Group CEO Carina Bauer said: "The IMEX Gala Dinner Awards celebrates legacy, be it social, environmental, personal or professional. We have re-named the Academy Awards the Paul Flackett IMEX Academy Awards in honour of our great friend and colleague – a man who left a powerful legacy of his own."

Much earlier in the day keen delegates rose early to take part in the IMEXRun 5 km event, which saw enthusiasts hit the road at 7am in central Frankfurt along the banks of the river.

Around 5pm, the Meet In Ireland stand drew a large crowd with a live band and dancers, while handing out half pints of Guiness.

Highlights for day three will include mocktails from euromic’s mixologist 4Flair, testing facial recognition technology with fielddive and more sensorial goings on in C2's Sky Lab and the Dark Lab.
