“This feels like a new world for our industry and gives me hope that 2022 will be a strong year.” Buyer Valeria Serrano, CTA Event Design and DMC in Mexico, sums up the joy and excitement felt at IMEX America’s pre-show day of learning, Smart Monday, powered by MPI. “It’s like a reunion of old friends,” she said. “I'm reconnecting with my industry friends and have many meetings scheduled over the next few days.”

Buyer Donna Rogers from Solus Sustainable Hydration in California agreed. “I’ve already filled my boss's calendar with face-to-face meetings and networking events!”

The power of the live, in-person experience resonated loud and clear with many as hosted buyer Shelby Green from Enterprise Events Group in California, explained, “I’m so excited to see people again—and happy not to be on another video call!”
