Southport Conferences, Hilton Worldwide and Shocklogic will sponsor the Association Events Forum at International Confex this year.
The programme, which is being produced in partnership with Associations Network, will see content provided for over 350 association buyers that attend the event.
Each of the supporters will be exhibiting at International Confex. The partnership with Confex will also see joint branding for supporters throughout the Association Educational Theatre.
“It’s great to have these brands on board with the association programme; they are all long term supporters of Confex and this partnership will give them another opportunity to engage with this important sector,” said Liz Agostini, event director, International Confex.
Southport Conferences will also be curating a session within the programme to engage association buyers on how to work collaboratively with destinations and venues. Part of Southport Conference’s activity at the show will be to once again shine a light on the important topic of business extension, however this time with the objective of presenting an argument for event organisers to engage more with the trend.
“This is a really important and very successful market for us so we’re pleased to have the opportunity to meet and work with such a rich quality of association event organisers,” comments Enda Rylands, chair of the Business Tourism Steering Group for Southport Conferences.
International Confex takes place 2 – 3 March 2016 at Olympia London. For more information visit www.international-confex.co.uk
