The International Confex conference programme for the 2017 show will be the biggest of its kind in the industry and include famous brands Innocent, PlayStation and L’Oréal, as well as agency speakers from FreemanXP to George P Johnson, drp, TRO, Big Cat and Smyle.
Alex Polizzi, TV’s The Hotel Inspector, will be one of the keynote speakers at the exhibition, which will be the biggest global gathering of event professionals in the UK.
The newly announced International Confex conference programme will be split into themes covering Marketing & Communications, Sales, Association Meetings, and Event Technology, all on top of the main keynote theatre content.
While the programme will feature speakers from within the industry, there will also be plenty of new perspectives available from outside of it. Emma Brunjes, the creative talent behind the Alice Underground and Sherlock: An Exhibition, will be sharing her thoughts on creating great experiences. Russel Beck, Impellam Consulting, will also give advice on ‘Futureproofing Your Business’.
“Our conference programme is the largest in the UK and one of the main reasons event professionals continue to come to International Confex,” says Liz Agostini, event director. “This year we’ve taken on more of the comments from our audiences to get more outside opinion into the theatres, and to provide the right mix of entertainment and education.”
International Confex will also be announcing details of a series of ‘installation’ style content within the programme following a series of partnerships that will go live in the New Year. The full educational programme is now live at www.international-confex.com, however more sessions will continue to go live in the run up to the show, which takes place at Olympia London, 1-2 March 2017.
