Confex welcomes Association Event Forum to 2018 event

Confex 2018 will once again see the return of the Association Event Forum to the event, which kicks off on February 28th.

Last year’s show, which is being produced in partnership with the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) and the Association of Association Executives for 2018, saw over 200 event planners walk through its doors.

During next year’s show, speakers will deliver talks on subjects spanning from crisis management to how to produce events on a shoe string.

Moderated by Heather Lishman, association director for the ABPCO, other speakers confirmed include the likes of Mike Hewitt, MD of Adaugeo Media; Kate Sargent, deputy MD of Bioscientifica; Leah Carter, global head of events at Association of MBAs; and Rebecca Harper, membership and events officer at the British Parking Association.

“This is a really great programme for an incredibly important group of visitors for the show,” said Liz Agostini, event director of International Confex.

“The association programme has grown in popularity year on year, and is still one of the best places to get free educational content specifically aimed towards association meetings. We’re especially delighted to be working with both ABPCO and the Association of Association Executives again this year.”

Confex takes place from February 28th to March 1st, 2018 at London’s Olympia.
