Industry leaders’ dinner kicks off International Confex 2015

The now traditional Associations and Industry Leaders’ Dinner gathered over 50 UK event industry association chiefs, sectoral association representatives and key directors from large international organisers at the Hilton London Olympia, 17 February, as a curtain-raiser to International Confex which opens at Olympia, London today (18 February).
Business Visits and Events Partnership chairman Michael Hirst, OBE, AEO director Chris Skeith, EVCOM’s CEO Marco Forgione and chairman Dale Parmenter, and HBAA executive director Juliet Price attended the event sponsored by Congress Group Austria and Crowd Comms.
Mash Media MD Julian Agostini welcomed the industry leaders. It was a time, he said, to make the case for events as never before, as people increasingly realised the power of face-to-face.
International Confex opens at Olympia, London at 9.30am today and lasts 18-19 February. It is co-located with the Event Production Show and the Office Management and PA show.
Organisers promise a show packed with education, insights and representatives of the full spectrum of the UK meetings and events industry.
All Party Parliamentary Group for events chairman Nick de Bois is speaking on Day 1.
Come and meet the Conference News team on stand CH70 at the show.
