The expo has witnessed record growth in visitors and is seeing a continued rise in attendance.
Confex 2018 is set to enjoy the highest number of corporate businesses and brand visitors in the show’s history.
2017’s show witnessed record growth in visitors and is seeing a continued rise in attendance, as well as pre-registration for 2018 among corporate buyers.
International Confex saw figures spike by 36.1% during the 2016 show, with corporate buyers making up a major contribution to the show.
“The corporate market is hugely important to our exhibitors, and we’re delighted with the growth and return rates of these visitors,” said Liz Agostini, event director of International Confex.
“This is an audience that is attracted by great education; they do not want to be sold to in pre-arranged meetings, and would rather walk the aisles looking for information and inspiration.”
The upcoming show is now looking to position itself as the UK’s primary meeting point for buyers to meet event management agencies, venues, destinations and more.
In addition, Confex will also offer educational content as part of its conference programme.
2018’s expo kicks off on February 28th to March 1st at London’s Olympia.
