Our Participants


​​​​​​The initiative is the brainchild of some large corporate leaders and is organized and facilitated by veterans Kimberly Meyer, David Kliman, Chloe Richardson and Mark Brewster.  The first meetings were held in September 2021 with  a series of invitation-only think tanks to support c-suite event professionals navigating the evolution of events taking place post-pandemic.

ELX is a place where the leaders of corporate programs can get candid insights, ideas and support from other leaders navigating major meeting and event portfolios.

Together, we’ll be able to drive some important initiatives forward across the industry in weeks, not years.  To do this effectively, ELX will remain invitation-only to corporate global heads of events and senior meeting leaders - those that sit at the very top of their company’s events programs.

ELX is perfect for:


  • Senior corporate events professionals from Fortune 500 companies with 100s of meetings and events a year.
  • Those from organizations with a headcount of 3000+ and £3billion+ revenue per year.
  • Those open to sharing ideas and industry insights, brainstorm issues and engage in powerful, actionable conversations that lead to progress for both the community and the industry as a whole


Expected participant contributions to ELX:


  • Attendance at one meeting per year in person for each region (including meetings to be held at IMEX Frankfurt and America, member hosted at their facility, or other industry events).
  • Participate in circa four virtual meetings per year.
  • Contribute (lead or fully participate) to at least one ELX topic per year that benefits you and the community.
  • Provide blinded materials and respond to surveys, where appropriate, to contribute to topics and wealth of discussion.


Applications to join the ELX are put forward for considered by the ELX Steering Committee before being approved. If you'd like to find out more contact us
