Whether through pre scheduled appointments, networking events or the International Confex 30th Birthday party, our exhibitors will have unrivalled access to the UK’s leading meeting and event buyers throughout the Confex Week.
In addition to the destination content already confirmed, leading hotels have also been quick to secure their place at the show. These include leading brands such as Accor, Dolce, Ramada and World Hotels, all of which are poised to showcase their world-class services and facilities.
The team behind International Confex have also announced a variety of new and returning names from its ‘Something Special’ sector and the growing technological arena. These exhibitors include Turning Technologies, Concep, Digital Design and Media, Cocconex and Animate & Create.
Samuel concludes “International Confex is committed to representing the breadth of this vibrant industry whilst catering for the ever evolving needs of its clients. With 30 years experience, no other show can understand this more than us, which is why we’re already in a position to talk about the great spectrum of leading names which will be part of the show next year.”
International Confex will take place alongside sister-show Live Experience from March 19th – 21st 2013.
