About IME

The Investment Management Exhibition (IME) is a two-day investment event of a special kind. It is a unique symbiosis of conference and exhibition, which will be taking place for the fifth time in 2020 on 24 and 25 March in Frankfurt am Main.


What IME is Offering

We aim through the Investment Management Exhibition (IME) that will take place on a yearly basis in Frankfurt am Main to help to promote better economic and social partnerships and competitiveness of different regions and networking with government bodies, businesses and International Financial Institutions.

• A highly efficient networking platform for project owners and investors in the fields of PPPs, Real-estate, Automotive, Agriculture, Chemical industry, Logistics, Financial services, Energy, Tourism and Hospitality.

• Networking between cities / regions / countries and entrepreneurs for company settlement and attracting foreign direct Investment in economic zones. It is a platform where government uses to showcase investment opportunities and meet investors.

• A Financial Forum, where representatives from the global financial and business community come together to discuss about opportunities and challenges facing Europe and the world.

Who will be there

Decision makers representatives and project managers for the public sector (Mayors, Ambassadors, Consuls, Ministers, heads of Investment Agencies)

• Small and medium-sized entrepreneurs and corporate officers
• Investors, banks, other financial service providers
• Representatives of specialized economic associations and Business Clubs
• Service providers such as: project developers, consultants, lawyers, tax specialists

How it works

Projects are presented mainly by the public sector as part of the conference program as well as on the exhibition space. Investors and entrepreneurs, who form the audience, have the opportunity to get to know a multitude of projects from the relevant industries and potential new locations within a short period of time and to get in direct contact with the project owners. The matchmaking process, however, begins already in the run-up to the event itself, so that in the course of the two days concrete deals can be closed.
