GCB Presents Winners of the German Wild Cards for IMEX

The German Convention Bureau (GCB) has announced this year's winners of the German wild cards for IMEX: the event agency Architektur im Dialog (AiD) and event and entertainment agency Fräulein Betty held off a host of competitors with their innovative event concepts. Each wins an exhibition area free-of-charge at the Germany Stand organised by the GCB. The two finalists will now have the opportunity to present their companies to an international trade fair audience.

"IMEX - incorporating Meetings made in Germany - the worldwide exhibition for incentive travel, meetings und events" will take place from 21 - 23 May 2013 in Hall 8 at Messe Frankfurt.

This is the eighth time that the GCB has awarded two wild cards to German organisations and companies that focus principally on events in their domestic market. Applicants are restricted to those who have not yet participated in a trade fair in this sector. Moreover, they must also be new companies in the German meeting, incentive, congress and event market or offer new products for the convention and event sector.

The GCB is the largest exhibitor at IMEX presenting over 200 exhibitors at the Germany Stand F100. The GCB is also a strategic partner of IMEX, a contact for exhibitors and visitors in Germany and the organiser of the German-language seminar programme.
