It’s been a week now since Central Hall Westminster’s MD Paul and I returned from Las Vegas where we were exhibiting at IMEX America 2018. We partnered with and were on the London Convention Bureau (London & Partners) stand.

IMEX is all about bringing the meetings industry together in one place at the same time, on an international scale. This show is America’s worldwide exhibition for incentive travel, meetings and events and place at Sands Expo, one of the world’s largest convention centres. This year the show was attended by over 13,000 participants, its largest yet.

Over the three-day exhibition Paul and I held multiple appointments with agents, direct bookers and destination management companies (DMCs) where we discussed their meeting and event needs and were able to showcase the wonderful venue that is Central Hall Westminster.

The show offers an effective way for us to introduce Central Hall Westminster’s event and conference facilities on an international platform; and to gain exposure on our ethos and CSR policy. This year Positive Impact Events created a Legacy Wall, which focuses on reducing the industry’s environmental footprint and supporting our local communities. Thanks to our robust sustainability and CSR initiatives, – we were featured on the Wall.

During the trip, we did manage to fit in a bit of time to take in the sights and have fun, part of which was to watch the fountains at the Bellagio and stroll along the canals of The Venetian (inside that is!)
