International Confex has signed a partnership agreement with the Local Authority Event Organisers Group (LAEOG) that will see the association bring its annual general meeting to the exhibition. The move will see a further boost in local authority event organisers at the show, and an extension of Local Live, the event’s local authority programme on the last day of International Confex and Live Experience.
On top of the AGM - exclusive for members of LAEOG - Local Live will also include two speaker sessions tailored towards organisers of Local Authority events. In addition to an investigation into the possibilities of hybrid, there will be an interactive session featuring a debate on the future of events in local authorities.
“Local authority events are an increasingly dynamic sector of the event industry and one which is enjoying a renaissance on the back of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations and the 2012 Cultural Olympiad,” comments James Samuel, Group Event Manager of International Confex. “We’re delighted to be working with LAEOG on Local Live and are looking forward to welcoming their members to International Confex.”
Andy Grove, Chair of the Local Authority Event Organisers Group said “Our members are increasingly pressurised for time and resource so we’re delighted to be working with International Confex to host our AGM and provide expert education whilst at the show. Our members are increasingly keen to learn, find new solutions and share ideas with the private sector and International Confex is the perfect forum to make this happen.”
International Confex and co-located event Live Experience will take place between the 19th and 21st of March at ExCeL London.
