A recently conducted survey by IMEX concluded that wellbeing is a top priority for meeting professionals. IMEX will offer a series of wellbeing initiatives at IMEX America this year to recognize the wellbeing for meeting professionals.

The event will take place Oct. 18–20 in Las Vegas and has several initiatives planned over its course. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, IMEX will host the IMEXrun, a 5K run along the Vegas Strip at dawn. The Be Well Lounge returns, led by trainer Lee Papa and her team. Regular sessions on yoga, mindfulness and mediation are offered as part of the initiative. Garbage Grabbers-Clean Up offers delegates the opportunity to ‘netwalk’ and interact with the local community.

On Monday, Oct. 17, volunteers can join the IMEX staff to participate in Exclusive Destination with 3D Destinations, GES and MeetGreen. This initiative also offers participants a chance to give back and to also netwalk with other meeting professionals.

Gather around the table, sample delicious local cuisine, and marvel at the astonishing scenery of the U.S. Mountain West.
