      • 0

      In the spirit of this year’s Confex theme of immersive events, we are inviting you to not just to ‘visit’ but to get stuck in and really take part in International Confex 2020 on 25th & 26th February at ExCeL London.

      With the topics of Speak, Meet, Debate, Network, Enjoy and Learn there are opportunities for every #eventprof to immerse themselves in the myriad of activities on the showfloor, in the theatres and on the social hubs.

      Confex is so much more than buyers meeting sellers. Throughout the years of our tenure of the show it has moved on from the purely transactional and developed into a uniquely innovative, social and creative event, reflecting the very characteristics that define our industry.

      How to get involved?

      Speak & Debate – There are a whole host of panel discussions going on in every corner of the show tackling subjects such as personalisation, CSR, sustainability and wellness to name but a few. Join the debate and if you have an opinion you’d like to share – jump on board the panel!

      If, on the other hand, you’d like to speak but the idea of public speaking fills you with abject terror, come along to the Sales Theatre on Day 1 at 10.00 to hear Ash Smith of Pitch giving some great ways of combating fear of public speaking in his session ‘Feel the Fear and do it anyway, public speaking for people who don’t like public speaking’

      Meet – A whole host of inspirational new suppliers, venues and destinations right across the showfloor. 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.

      Network – International Confex has always been known as the hub where the events industry in its glorious entirety gathers. Catch up with old friends and forge relationships with new ones in the main bar, delivered in partnership with GES, on the Association Village Green in partnership with ABPCO and the AAE or on the Mash Media central hub where there will be a plethora of events taking place including the CN 30/30 meet up, the Confex Alumni gathering and the EN/CN Awards finalists drinks parties.

      Enjoy – The huge range of exhibitors and speakers have so many experiences for you to enjoy. 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 in the Association Events Forum or enjoy watching the hopefuls pitching in the EventTech Dragons Den. And, after all that, when you need a break, chill out and recharge in the VIP lounge delivered in partnership with Freeman.

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