Hosted buyer qualifying criteria
All hosted buyers must:
- Be responsible for researching, organising, influencing or making budgetary decisions for international events (outside their home country)
- Have three confirmed or planned events taking place in the next three years
- Be coming to the show with purchasing power
- Be at the show for the duration of their hosted buyer programme (we will check this before issuing any travel reimbursements)
- Book appointments with exhibitors (we recommend between six and eight appointments per day and we will check this when qualifying hosted buyers for future IMEX shows)
Note: We make the final decision on qualifying all hosted buyers. We reserve the right to cancel a hosted buyer registration if it becomes clear that the hosted buyer is unable to fulfil their commitment to us.
