IMEX America as seen on Facebook page
IMEX Group has issued a statement ahead of the opening of IMEX America in response to the Las Vegas shooting.
Carina Bauer, CEO, IMEX Group, said: “We are shocked and saddened at the events that have taken place in Las Vegas recently. Both IMEX America and the Sands have very strong security in place, with both visible and plain clothes security teams in the venue and at the tradeshow.
“Over the coming days we will be working closely with the Sands, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and the Las Vegas authorities to assess any additional security measures that are needed at this time. We will take their full advice in ensuring the best possible security and safety of our guests. We will give further information as it becomes available.”
IMEX America is due to take place at Sands Expo, Las Vegas, on 10-12 October.
