The Official IMS After Party: Bigger, Better, and Ballier

After the smashing success of 2022, we're bringing back the Official IMS After Party! Picture this: exclusive use of Ballie Ballerson Shoreditch from 5:30 pm, where you can party into the night.

But that's not all – we've got free-flowing beer, wine, cider, and soft drinks to quench your thirst, unlimited pizza to satisfy your cravings, and a complimentary cocktail (or mocktail) to kickstart the festivities.

At Ballie Ballerson, you'll find not one but two ball pits, a live DJ dropping the hottest beats, and a room filled with familiar and fresh from the Influencer Marketing world. It's the perfect opportunity to continue those game-changing conversations or celebrate the deals that you've secured with your team.

Have you downloaded the IMS app yet?

To get the most out of IMS this year, you'll need the official IMS app sponsored by Billion Dollar Boy. This app is your passport to connecting with the right people in advance. Once you're connected, you can book 1-2-1 meetings within the Partnerships Lounge, meet at other zones, or chat online with your newfound contacts.

The app has multiple features on offer for you to really get the most out of your IMS experience. If you’re looking to connect with the right people, the app allows you to access the full attendee list and use smart filters to find the most valuable connections, as well as an AI matchmaking feature for personalised recommendations. But that’s not all, the app grants you access to the event floorplan so that you can locate amenities and pinpoint exhibitor booths.

There will also be no need to wait around at IMS, as you can find your ticket QR code in the app for quick check-in. Plus, you’ll never miss a presentation again, with access to presentations on-demand being available via the app post-event. What are you waiting for? Download the app now!
