Make a pledge for people and planet

We’re on a mission to support both people and planet by telling stories and seeking action. Whether you’re a stand coordinator or a buyer, we’re asking you to make a pledge to champion social impact and environmental responsibility at IMEX Frankfurt.

Commitment
By each committing to four simple actions, together we can create a show that’s both inclusive and conscious of our impact on the planet.
Recognition
We’ll highlight participating stands with a green stand number and in a listing at the IMEX-EIC People and Planet Village (if registration is received by 24 April).
 
Reward
Everyone supporting the pledge can collect a ribbon at the IMEX Info Zone in Hall 9 to emphasise their participation.
