The Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, Orlando and Indianapolis convention and visitor bureaus have teamed up with IMEX, the European meeting and incentive show, to create a USA Pavilion Ñ the first since the show was launched in 2003. Acccording to the International Association of Convention & Visitor Bureaus, IMEX, to be held in Frankfurt April 19-21, developed the USA pavilion as a cost-effective way for destinations to participate in the expo; the group is looking for other U.S. CVBs to partner in the stand at a cost of approximately $6,400 each.
