International Confex and The Meetings Industry Association (mia) have confirmed their partnership for the 2015 show at Olympia, London, in February.
Next year sees the mia celebrate its 25th anniversary and the association will mark the silver date by holding its first major event of the year, its 25th Annual General Meeting, at International Confex.
In addition, the exhibition floor will see the popular AIM Pavilion expanded. Venues and destinations on the AIM Pavilion will all be ‘AIM accredited’.
AIM is the only accreditation scheme broadly accepted throughout the industry that helps guide buyers and booking agents in their search for quality venues and suppliers, as well as providing an audit trail to meet stringent procurement demands.
mia Chief Executive Jane Longhurst (pictured), says: “We hope to develop our presence further; Confex is a great national platform for our members and we look forward to another stimulating show and to contributing to the education programme also.”
Confex Event Director Liz Agostini adds: “It’s great to have the support from the mia. We look forward to working together to grow the AIM Pavilion, supplying the industry with great educational content and celebrating 25 fantastic years of the mia with an outstanding AGM alongside International Confex 2015”.
Owned by Mash Media, International Confex is the UK’s leading event for the UK meetings and events industry. In 2015 it will be co-located with The Event Production Show and takes place 18-19 February 2015, at Olympia London.
