IMEX America, the brand-new meeting and incentive trade show held at the Sands in Las Vegas, ended yesterday after hosting 2,000 buyers, 1,700 attendees and nearly 2,000 exhibitors. In a closing press conference, IMEX Group Chairman Ray Bloom, in praising the Sands Convention Center, said that though the show was booked there through 2014, "we intend to be here at the Sands indefinitely."
