Firstly, on behalf of the IMA Europe board, and all our members, can I thank you for your continued support of IMA Europe in 2018. Membership is the primary revenue channel for IMA Europe and without your support we would not be able build our industry association and provide a structure for incentive professionals to learn and develop their skills. As a not-for-profit association, with an entirely volunteer management, we rely our industry peers, our members, working together for the benefit of all. Thank you for continuing to make this possible.

2017 was a very successful year for IMA Europe as we continued to grow our membership. Apart for the obvious networking and business opportunities that membership provides, the truly fantastic quality of many of the presentations at our meetings in 2017 was key driver in that growth. This mixture of quality content, excellent surroundings and a collegiate atmosphere provides real value at our meetings and a mixture that we will continue to champion throughout 2018. In keeping with this, the next IMA Europe meeting takes place in Rotterdam on January 11th. Registrations are building to what looks like a record number of attendees. So don’t miss your opportunity to network with incentive industry experts from across Europe, and listen to a number of great case studies and academic research, the theme being “Next Generation Loyalty”, book your place.

Adding to this successful year, we are also pleased to announce that Skylight Search Consultants will be our event sponsor for the coming year. Skylight Search Consultants is the first recruitment firm specialising in the search for personnel within the gift card / loyalty, incentives and motivation industry. Their sponsorship is a perfect fit for the association and we are delighted to welcome them on board.

On behalf of myself and the IMA Europe Board we would like to take the opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for a Prosperous New Year – we hope to see you in Rotterdam.

Very best wishes,

Jonathan Grey
