International Confex is to introduce an innovative opt-in hosted buyer programme for next year's exhibition. The 'Confex Connect' hosted buyer programme will enable buyers to choose who they would like to meet at the trade show and appointments will be matched based on both the exhibitor and buyer preferences.
Confex Connect will offer three tiers, with exhibitors able to choose the number of pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings they would like to have each day and the number of pre-scheduled group presentations they would like to hold, therefore guaranteeing the number of qualified leads they will take away from the show.
Buyers, selected through a rigorous vetting procedure, will include those who are responsible for planning, budgeting and managing meetings, events, conferences, conventions, training, exhibitions as well as business travel. With representations from venue finding & events agencies, associations and societies, corporate, destination management companies, event organisers, meeting planners, charities & not for profit organisations, government organisations and professional conference organisers, there will be ample opportunity to establish new relationships and generate new business.
Buyers will also have the opportunity to choose who they would like to meet throughout the two days of the show and appointments will be matched based on both the exhibitor and buyer preferences.
Owned by Mash Media, International Confex is co-located with The Event Production Show and will take place on 18th and 19th February 2015, at Olympia London.
