Our suppliers

It is with the help and commitment of these two service providers, who have been working with us for several years that we can realize this dematerialized Forum in multilingual live streaming:

Apex: a company specialized in the technical realization of corporate events, conferences, events, parties or trade shows (sound, video broadcasting, lighting, etc.).

Free Lens: FreeLens is a production company specialized in corporate and TV audiovisual services such as video production, Livestream and TV broadcasting.




LuxVisual: professionals in large format digital printing, Lux Visual has worked with IMS to find the most adapted and sustainable solutions: design of reusable media or recyclable materials including beelite reboard and solvent-free inks.

Njörd: a committed caterer and restaurateur, Njörd was able to listen to our needs and proposed vegetarian meal trays with local and organic products.

Meliá Luxembourg: our guests were coming from far and wide live in this eco-labelled establishment whose CSR policy resonates with our fields of action: elimination of single-use plastics, use of larger garbage bags, use of large-format dispensers for hygiene products, communication via digital tools, catering integrating local products... 

Mamie et Moi: the protective masks distributed during the Forum are made by Renée, a member of the Mamie et Moi association. The Mamie et Moi initiative was launched in 2012, with knitting as a vector for links between generations. The ASBL offers meetings in the form of workshops, knitting cafés and courses, always led by the grannies of their network. Since 2018, they have opened their actions to other skills such as cooking, storytelling and gardening.


Our partners

MyClimate: IMS strives to limit its carbon footprint as much as possible. After several years of collaboration, IMS Luxembourg and MyClimate signed a partnership agreement in January 2017 allowing us to offset the carbon footprint of all our activities through the Mobisol Smart Solar Homes project, which installs high-tech solar-powered home systems based on new technologies.

Oekozenter: To combine a quality approach with the desire to reduce the environmental impact of this event, IMS Luxembourg called upon the Oekozenter to benefit from its advice and recommendations, based on work carried out in the framework of the MICE Cluster and supported by the Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructure.
