During an exciting press conference, we announced the launch of our brand new product, EventMobi Live Display™, the world’s first real-time digital signage solution with social media, gamification and event app integration for events and conferences.

The 5k race returned once more! Launched one year ago, IMEX kicked off their Be Well at IMEX initiative, a campaign that includes a series of health and well-being sessions. This year, 800 runners and walkers took to the streets of Frankfurt racing to the finish line before the day of business meetings began.
Found in the Inspiration Hub, IMEX created a brand new space called the Play Room. Attendees gathered in a unique place to get creative by diving into activities such as transforming standard meals into memorable experiences and tackling problems using out-of-the-box thinking and collaboration.
EventMobi: Bigger and Better
This year we were excited to launch our biggest IMEX booth ever (not mention the largest event technology booth at the show)! IMEX at Frankfurt is such an important show to us, that we decided to make a big splash with a custom designed booth. Working with industrial design teams in Canada and Germany, we wanted to create an immersive experience for current clients and #EventProfs new to the EventMobi brand. And the efforts paid off beautifully with our highest booth traffic and engagement ever.
Buyers who were new to our event technology platform got to discover it all in our interactive space, with our larger than life touchscreen tablet. Those who wanted a one-on-one demo were paired with one of our event technology experts and for those who wanted a personalized experience got to enjoy chatting with our friendly international staff in the lounge.
Our booth has really evolved over the past 5 years since we first exhibited at IMEX. We hoped you loved meeting with us, as we did having you!
All in all, IMEX in Frankfurt was a tremendous experience. We hope our recap gives you a stellar highlight of what you missed, and we can’t wait to see you at IMEX in Las Vegas this October to help you experience what’s new with EventMobi firsthand!
