IMC goes global following Dubai convention

May 10, 2018
IMC World held its 7th annual convention in the city of Dubai in February.

Like many, IMC had to make a change of venue as the event was originally planned to be held on the island of Bali, but due to the threat of a volcanic eruption and the dangers involved, they switched to Dubai at the last minute.   The organisers chose Dubai as it is the major hub for Emirates Airlines and the gateway to Asia.  

The convention was held at the same hotel as FIDI the previous year: the JW Marriott Marques. The organisers said that the hotel was ‘total perfection’ and the staff were ‘simply outstanding’.   Speakers for the event included Ray daSilva from Mobility Exchange and Jesse van Sas from FIDI.  Feedback was excellent.   

IMC World has now changed to be a paid members' organisation with a membership fee of $365 per year.  This gives members the opportunity of attending up to four events every year.  IMC World will go to Latin America in March 2019, probably in Recife in Brasil.  Other venues will include Hong Kong and a European event later on in the year, most likely in Germany.   

Andrew Rosemeyer, from IMC explained that this is why the suffix ‘World’ was added to IMC.  “We will be opening all worldwide events to members and non-members alike, but obviously members convention rates will be less than non-member rates,” he said.  “We also intend to open the doors of IMC World to all mobility providers such as movers, storers, real estate, DSP, furniture rental, shipping lines, expat travel specialists, expat banking, visa and immigration experts etc.”
