The annual Worldwide Exhibition for Incentive Travel, Meetings and Events (IMEX), is being held in Frankfurt on the 15 - 17 May 2018 and is the largest international event of its kind in Europe, with over 4,000 suppliers and meetings and events planners.

The teams from Auckland Convention Bureau, Tourism New Zealand and The New Zealand International Convention Centre (NZICC) will have representatives on hand to talk about Auckland, New Zealand and the NZICC - a new 4,000 pax venue, due to open in 2020.

Hosted buyers can find us by our company profile (New Zealand International Convention Centre) and request a time with Prue. If you are intending on registering for IMEX Frankfurt but don’t have an appointment stream feel free to email us directly to make a time (see details below) or come and talk to the team in the 100% Pure New Zealand Stand, C300. Join the team at one of three Coffee Times that will be hosted on the stand on May 15, 16 and 17 at 10:00 - 14:00.

If you are in Frankfurt, wider Europe region or London, and aren’t attending IMEX Frankfurt but would like more information our team would be delighted to hear from you, and understand your conference needs, and if possible come to see you.

Auckland
Auckland is more accessible than ever and is the best connected city in the county. 30 international airlines fly direct to Auckland from 43 destinations around the world.

Flights to NZ

Auckland is a place where city style and natural beauty go hand in hand. With a vibrant and diverse range of venues, activities and landscapes on offer, event planners are spoilt for choice when it comes to creating a world class business event.

Auckland already has the infrastructure to cater to the needs of groups, with 7,000 hotel rooms from 2 to 5-stars in the central city alone, with more accommodation in the pipeline and of course the development of the NZICC, putting Auckland at the forefront of business events in New Zealand. 

Fresh, diverse, globally-inspired and gourmet are just a few of the words to describe Auckland's exciting dining scene. Being home to a melting pot of cultures, you’ll find a huge range of traditional and modern cuisine throughout the many dining precincts across the city. New Zealand’s famous geography gives its food scene a distinct advantage. (Bloomburg)

Auckland is a thriving high-tech hub of the Asia-Pacific region, home to more than 20,000 innovation-based companies. There are experts across business, industry, tertiary and research institutions, making the city the perfect choice for international delegates to connect and collaborate.
