The second day of IMG Show will be dedicated to the educational conference held in Soglasie HALL. The agenda covers relevant issues related to business travel industry: domestic and foreign experts and officials will share the latest MICE news and tendencies and discuss how to effectively organize navigation at the event venue, how to capture the best coverage of the event, and how to impress guests when all “WOW-effects” have already been tried out.
The event aims to establish a business network for providers of MICE and business travel services and their customers. The intensive programme of the two-day IMG Show will demonstrate the potential of Moscow as a prospective location for large-scale business events. In addition to the workshops, the educational part will enable the participants to broaden their knowledge in the field of business travel and event management, to share professional experience, and to discuss topical issues.
