International Confex 2014 opens its doors tomorrow (12 March) at Olympia London. The UK event industry’s leading exhibition will see government, celebrities, inspirational business leaders, high profile event buyers and the very best industry brands, all represented under one roof for two intensive days of business and networking.
“International Confex will once again be the focal point of the events industry, something we set out to do from the first day we took on the show,” says Event Director Donna Bushell.
“We said we wanted to give the show back to the industry and it has already taken on a look and feel that we hope will make this industry proud.”
George P Johnson has developed a secret, yet dynamic entrance experience. A themed central networking area and exciting event brands are set to provide an inspirational setting for event organisers looking for something new and exciting.
Meanwhile, the comprehensive conference programme will see Nick de Bois MP officially open the show, followed by an industry inclusive debate on the response to the All Party Parliamentary Group Inquiry launched last year.
Karren Brady CBE, Vice-Chairman of West Ham United FC, and Kanya King MBE, Founder and CEO of the MOBO Awards, will be high profile keynote speakers, with heavyweight educational and content support from PCMA, Zibrant, the Business Visits and Events Partnership and George P Johnson in particular.
The first 1,000 visitors each day will be entered into a free prize draw offering a host of goodies, and the best creative idea implemented for the show will also be rewarded with a cash prize of £1,000.
Visitors can expect a host of new product launches for the events industry taking place throughout the event.
“There is so much going on this year, and we’re encouraging visitors to stay as long as they can, take time with our exhibitors to get the products and services they require, and then to learn from industry leaders in our purpose-built theatres,” adds Bushell. “There is going to be a brilliant feel to the show this year; it’s going to be productive and enjoyable? just like every good event.”
