Following the launch of International Confex’s hosted buyer programme, organisers Confex Group, confirmed the response from buyers across the UK and Europe has been exceptionally strong.
International Confex, which takes place at Earls Court from 23-25 February will deliver over 100 high quality hosted buyers representing the corporate, agency and association sectors from France, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Spain and the UK.
“Confex is committed to building a business focused show and we are thrilled to be introducing the hosted buyer programme this year,” commented Duncan Reid, Portfolio Director. “Buyers accepted onto the programme include WorldEvents, MotivAction, Tesco, Banks Sadler and the British Cardiovascular Society to name a few. The programme will offer buyers an effective way to meet with exhibitors, maximise networking opportunities and create additional business for both.”
The show’s broad coalition of industry partners including BMI, Flybe, Eurostar, InterContinental Hotel Group, Radisson Edwardian Hotels and Hotel Russell will help to deliver the programme’s accommodation and travel packages. Hosted buyers will receive a personal itinerary of pre-scheduled appointments, access to uniquely created educational content as well as an invitation to an exclusive reception on the Tuesday night with Visit London and ISES.
“The response and support from buyers, exhibitors and industry partners has been fantastic and we are looking forward to delivering this exciting new programme at Confex this year and into the future,” adds Reid.
