Become an intermediary

The intermediary role at IMEX

Exhibitors and industry partners who choose to bring groups of hosted buyers to our show are the mainstay of our hosted buyer program. We call them intermediaries.

What do intermediaries do?

As an intermediary, you’ll invite your clients to the show, check their hosted buyer registrations before we do and look after them while they’re here. 

You’ll make sure your group know their itinerary and their commitment to stay at the show and book and attend meetings during opening hours. You’ll nominate a group leader to look after them and be our key contact for your group. We’ll cover their flights and accommodations too (up to our travel reimbursement limit). 

You’ll be assigned a dedicated IMEX Relationship Manager to help you do all this. We also have easy-to-use guides to help you learn all about being an intermediary

Why be an intermediary?

Inviting your clients to the show and looking after them while they’re here is a unique experience that delivers long-term rewards and relationships.

Who can be an intermediary?

All exhibitors with their own booths at IMEX are welcome to become intermediaries.
