IMEX America is America's largest tradeshow for the meetings, events, and travel industry in Las Vegas, where thousands of industry professionals gather every year to network, learn, and share. The conference is typically 4 days long, and is filled with seminars, exhibitions, and networking opportunities. For working professionals, suppliers and buyers, business is flowing and deals are being made. But the conference is also open to students, where the opportunities for enrichment are endless.
Students who have the opportunity to attend IMEX are granted the ability to experience the professional world hands on, as they will be meeting and speaking with thousands of experienced professionals such as event planners, meeting coordinators, audio visual companies, rental suppliers, venue owners, and so many more. Not only is this an opportunity for students to learn, but is also an opportunity to make connections with potential employers. Students may connect with industry workers and secure an internship or post-graduation position.
The students who will be attending IMEX are members of the Meeting Professionals International student group at Oklahoma State University. This group is for students who are interested in the meeting and events industry. These students are dedicated learners who are always looking for an opportunity to connect to professionals and learn more about the industry. By donating to this fund, you will be granting these students the amazing, rewarding, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend the IMEX conference at a significantly reduced price. Your donation will help cover the purchase of attendee tickets, flight tickets, and hotel accommodations. This will alleviate financial stress for students who otherwise would not be able to attend. We sincerely appreciate your consideration and donations to our fund and thank you for giving our students this amazing opportunity!
