Armed with this research and " mounting exhibitor bookings and visitor and hosted buyer registrations" for the eighth annual IMEX exhibition this May, organiser, the IMEX Group, is predicting that this year's show is set to deliver " more business opportunities than ever before". Chairman of the IMEX Group, Ray Bloom believes the show's enduring success is founded on making sure that exhibitors and buyers can do as much business together as possible. " The industry returns to IMEX year after year because we deliver maximum return on investment for their money and time," says Bloom.

Scandic Hotels and Albert Management of Latvia will exhibit for the first time and Warwick International makes a return.
