      Increasingly key to the PA role is event management, the 37th edition of International Confex will take place on 25 – 26 February 2020 at ExCeL London, bringing together thousands of event professionals for two jam-packed days of learning, networking and inspiration. 

      There are a huge range of exhibitors to discover; have a play in Leisure King’s Mobile Escape Room, marvel at Luster’s event mosaic technology, join JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa for a taste of Mexico and a reinvigorating drop of tequila, find your ‘happy place’ with a spot of meditation and yoga. 

      If you’re in a hurry and want to fill up your little black ideas book quickly, join up for one of the speed networking sessions. As a thank you for taking part, you’ll receive a beautiful Khyva gift box filled with luxury goodies.

      With over 60 sessions taking place over 2 days, whether it’s ideas for sustainability, CSR or wellness, you’re guaranteed to leave International Confex with a load of inspiration for better events. 

      We have an incredible line up of speakers including Emma Watkinson, the co-founder and CEO of London based digital fashion destination SilkFred.com. Launched in 2012, SilkFred has revolutionised the digital landscape by creating an online curated marketplace; a destination to discover distinctive designs and an unrivalled choice of unique, independent brands all in one place. Emma will talk about the obstacles she’s encountered, why resilience is at least as important as strategy, the power of social media, the importance of nurturing young talent and keeping the customer at the centre of everything you do. Taking place at 11.40 – 12.20 on the Keynote Theatre. 

      The Exclusively London Pavilion will play host to a number of key industry discussions, at 11.30 we will be looking into Workplace culture for 2020 and beyond, the events industry is entrepreneurial by nature, and wherever enterprise is flourishing, attention turns to how companies can retain the best talent, and help employees thrive. This session will look at how anyone involved in a business can make simple changes to improve workplace culture and create an environment that turns employees into advocates. 

      International Confex is also co-located with the PA Show. Your visitor badge grants you access to both shows, enabling you to benefit from additional opportunities, it’s an excellent chance to grow your contacts within further sectors of industry.

      With a mix of free and paid-for streams, the CPD-accredited PA Show educational programme offers an unrivalled breadth of opportunities for development and knowledge.
