UBM Live has appointed hotel reservation agency, Event Express, to handle all accommodation requirements for its upcoming International Confex show at Earls Court.
According to the exhibition organiser, the appointment is the first time it has chosen to have an exclusive partner providing hotel-related services. The next International Confex will be held from 1-3 March 2011 and targets the events and exhibition industry.
UBM Live Group Operations Director, Mirabelle Chatterjee, said Event Express’ specialist focus made it an ideal partner for Confex. The company provides accommodation packages for over 100 events and exhibitions in the UK annually.
“We are immensely proud to be working with UBM Live on so many of its exhibitions. In my view it’s a huge honour to be appointed to provide an accommodation service for International Confex,” Event Express MD, Stephen Arthur, said. “Satisfying the requirements and budgets of organisers, exhibitors, delegates and visitors all contribute to the onward success and profitability of a show.”
Last month, VisitBritain announced it would co-locate its Discovery 2011 event with Confex. The five-day meetings and incentive programme is expected to attract 125 buyers from 30 countries.
