Organizers of IMEX America have now published full details of the show’s professional education program, which runs over four days at the Sands Expo® in Las Vegas . The program starts on Smart Monday, powered by Meeting Professionals International (MPI), Oct 14, and continues through the tradeshow, Oct. 15- 17.

Every year IMEX America works with a variety of leading industry partners and partner associations to deliver an extensive and free education program to complement the strong business focus of its three-day trade show. The majority of the education earns CMP/ clock hours or other accreditation.

The 2013 program will kick off with Smart Monday, Oct. 14, powered by strategic partner and premier education provider MPI, and also including specialist education from a variety of additional association partners. This unique pre-show day of education allows all participants including buyers, exhibitors and trade attendees to take part in valuable professional development sessions before the show even opens.

Once the show is underway, the education focus shifts to daily morning keynotes taking place before the start of business, followed by regular sessions at various locations on the show floor for maximum convenience and easy accessibility in between exhibitor appointments.
