It has been just over a week since IMEX Frankfurt came to a close. The Encore team has returned to our clients, partners, and colleagues across various regions, excited to bring fresh insights and new ideas to future event collaborations. 

The week encapsulated the energy of a thousand events, so we have compiled our top highlights and takeaways from our IMEX experience. 

Transforming Experiences 

Encore is more than an event technology partner. Encore brings curious concepts to the table, to spark conversation and cultivate a culture of doing better for our clients and our communities.  

Cue the immersive jungle room: an impactful and sustainably inspired space for innovation and collaboration.

Illuminating a Brighter Future

Encore’s sustainable initiative, “Illuminating a Brighter Future” and other Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) themes were key topics of conversation at IMEX.  

We were delighted to be involved in these discussions, through our CEO and President Ben Erwin’s fireside chat with German Convention Bureau’s Matthias Schultze, and Encore’s Director of Global Sustainability, Patrick Sullivan’s insightful conversations with other leaders spearheading CSR initiatives.  

Learn more about Illuminating a Brighter Future with Encore, and get in touch with one of our Project Managers today to discuss your next event, with CSRconscious event solutions. 

Global Action. Local Impact.

Global-local connectivity is key to consistency and reliability in service with any event partner. 

Encore’s global network of team members and partners, as well as production and hospitality expertise, keep us on the forefront of innovation in event technology.  

Where possible, we resource locally, whilst seeking inspiration from the surrounding offices, networks and regions to bring the latest and greatest in innovation to a local venue or production near you.  

Wherever you are based, get in touch today if you’re keen to learn more about Encore’s creative event technology services. 

The Capsule

There were more surprises in store for visitors to our EMEA café booth. If the branded cups of coffee weren’t enough to leave their mark, a quick glance to the left showcased the ‘Capsule’: the latest in innovative holographic technology. The Capsule offers a new way to captivate, engage and interact with an audience; transforming CEO greetings, teleporting guests into the world of storytelling, and including the presence of the admirably absent. The Capsule can beam speakers from anywhere, directly into live events, and can also pre-record content for later use.  

With the Capsule, the possibilities truly become endless when you ‘think outside the box’.  


Thought Leadership

Finally, the primary purpose of the Encore booth was to serve as an educational epicentre for event planners and partners attending IMEX. Our three-day educational series, curated by Encore’s Event Experience Strategy Director, Anthony Vade, invited like-minded innovators to engage in conversation, activities and even animations to ignite conversation.
