IMEX America 2016 is underway at the Sands Expo & Conference Center in Las Vegas, after an opening keynote session on the “psychology of meetings,” from Meetology Lab founder and CEO Jonathan Bradshaw.

Monday’s programming, referred to as Smart Monday, is led by MPI and includes a variety of activities and educational sessions, most of which require advance registration or invitation. IMEX 2016 officially runs from October 18-20 and mixes education and one-on-one business appointments.

Other major events at IMEX 2016 include the CIC Hall of Leaders Reception, IMEX-MPI Future Leaders Forum and MPI Foundation Rendezvous, the official IMEX America Party.
