Smart Monday is just the start of four days of opportu- nities to invest in your professional development — from headline keynotes to hands-on workshops.

Connect with the IMEX community on and off the show floor at countless network- ing events. Hit the sweet spot at the Shamrock Invitational Golf Classic, sprint (or amble) along the Strip for the IMEXrun, or just kick back and relax at MPI Rendezvous. Be sure to make your appointments with our exhibitors early — eight shows down, we know that those who have the best show are those canny advance planners.
