Note that there are two meanings of Gang - in case we want to say 19 Years the conference was held in a corridor we would use im as a contraction of in dem. The German articles used to actually be demonstrative articles, and they are still used as a weakened version between "this" and "that".
If they are used as such, they are not contracted. If you fail to contract something then it simply sounds as if you want to point at something. That can be confusing but it's not a big problem. Finally, there is a good load of expressions that use "im". Saying "in dem" would sound really weird and The Floor Is Made Of Lava (1st Demo) - The Floor Is Made Of Lava - Record Store Day EP destroy the idiomatic feel.

CarstenSchultz definitely not Also you would have gotten some upvotes. Oh Duden I think dividing "im" into 2 meanings is just plain stupid because it is arbitrary.
I strongly suggest you limit your answer what it should be If it didn't have the name people would see it for what it is.
