Sponsorship opportunities – crafted just for you

Every year we carefully review the sponsorships we offer to make sure they’re delivering the impact, value and return our exhibitors want. So, whether you’re looking for a classic print package or something entirely new – and probably bespoke – we’re perfectly placed to advise you. Why not consult us on how to activate a current sponsorship or challenge us for a bunch of fresh ideas? Our sales team has 50 years’ experience of sales and sponsorships. That’s a lot of sponsorship wisdom to tap into!

Brand spotlight exposure


If your appetite is for location-specific brand visibility on or off the show-floor, then we have the right packages for you - all in prominent locations, perfect for delivering big brand value.

  • BIG AND BOLD BANNERS from $12,000

Large, small, high, low, up, down or all-around…we can work something out. And what makes a good banner? Striking images. Bold colors. Short, provocative straplines. Captivating, memorable faces.

  • EVERY STEP THEY TAKE…stair risers from $12,500

New for 2017! Registration joins the hosted buyer lounge on the lower level. This means all attendees will use your branded stairs at least once during the show. Every step on the stairs between the hosted buyer lounge and the show floor is your space to share multiple messages.

  • AISLE MARKERS from $18,750

Experience shows that our 25 aisle markers work extremely well when exhibitors have a call to action or a tagline that draws an audience to their booth. Just a logo is not enough but if you have a crafty way with catchy words, then aisle markers can be a winner for your brand.

  • IMEXRUN from $8,000

The ever popular IMEXrun is back on Wednesday before the show opens. We anticipate over 800 runners taking part in the fun run, managed by events by tlc/Case Imagine, so place your brand in our runners sights – from t-shirts to boards to flags you are guaranteed exposure.

  • CAFÉ MOMENTS prime locations, high traffic, no froth from $35,000

Our three show floor cafes provide important places for attendees to have down time in a busy day…moments for calm, comfort, coffee and cakes. All cafes feature clearly on our floor plans throughout the hall, our website and in the Show Planner. They are also frequently used as meeting places for thousands of our attendees.


Place your brand directly into the hands and minds of meetings and events buyers from all sectors of the market and all corners of the globe.

  • IN THE ZONE hosted buyer lounge zone packages from $26,000 

Our hosted buyer lounge is a special place. It’s where buyers come to rest, recharge and feel at home in-between busy appointments. It’s not just banners, sponsoring a zone gives you the chance to bring your brand to life right in front of the hosted buyers. Available to a maximum of five sponsors.


Association Focus is a headline education event on Monday, October 9 that only association professionals attend. As a supporting sponsor it is the perfect opportunity to spend time with over 200 association professionals and place your brand in their sights.


This is your chance to spend time in the company of corporate hosted buyers and directors from some of North America’s (and the world's) biggest companies (just think Fortune 500). As the sole sponsor of our prestigious Executive Meetings Forum Sunday evening dinner, your brand message will be front and center with a prime audience, one that’s notoriously hard to reach.


Community engagement, leaving a legacy and minimizing our environmental footprint are issues we care deeply about at IMEX. If your brand is committed to making lasting, positive impacts on people and the planet we have a simple and attractive package combining prominent at-show presence with new group activities (the chance to meet and mingle with new contacts) plus plenty of PR possibilities where you’ll have space and time to tell a longer story. 


  • WEB BANNERS from $1,850

Maximize your visibility by posting your banners on this website in the build up to the show. A great value way to promote your presence online and drive buyers to your booth.
