America’s worldwide exhibition for incentive travel, meetings and events, IMEX America, was held in Las Vegas this week, October 17-20, 2016. While the conference was great as usual, the annual IMEXrun was what Event Profs Run was excited most about. Inspired by the Brazilian spirit, this year IMEX hosted the 2nd annual IMEXrun – a 5km long fun run at sunrise for an estimated 250 event professional participants. Held on a flat course, it was an activity that was accessible to runners of all levels, including walkers. With a course that took participants along the main boulevard of Las Vegas (aka. Strip), it was the perfect start to a day at IMEX America!
As shared by IMEX’s media team, ‘the IMEXrun is one of a wide variety of IMEX’s wellbeing features which are new for IMEX America 2016 and form part of IMEX’s sustainability initiatives. The IMEXrun highlights the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle that includes physical activity for busy professionals. It is a small step to help attendees balance an intense week of business with healthy sports activity.” Our response to that…AMEN! We love that this international conference supporting our industry ‘gets it!’
