IMEX Frankfurt 2023 & Global Fest Highlights

Ovation Global DMC, Switzerland Convention and Incentive Bureau, Royal Caribbean International, Silversea, Cvent, and eGroup Communication partnered together at IMEX Frankfurt  2023 last month to bring together Global Fest. We hosted over 300 industry professionals at the Copper Bar for an evening of networking and celebration.



The premier after-work event welcomed hosted buyers from Canada, The United States, Switzerland, and Brazil among other countries. Guests were eager to meet face-to-face once again and spent the evening chatting, drinking, and dancing.


Global Fest focused on community impact, global networking, and the power of innovation and collaboration in the event industry. It was a moment to come together and celebrate our global community!



The evening concluded with the announcement of several high-value raffle prizes and giveaways. Among the prices were several two-night stays in Amsterdam, Geneva, and Rio. Along with a Royal Caribbean cruise and a trip to Switzerland with business class flights, hotel stay, dinner, and local transport passes.


The roaring success of the event signalled a continual desire to build connections on a global scale! Ovation Global DMC hosted its first event in 2018 during IMEX Frankfurt. After a smaller-scale event last year, Ovation was thrilled to launch a larger event again last month.
