Confex International is a must-attend trade show for all UK and worldwide event professionals. As an exhibitor, you get a chance to talk to some of 6,700 core professional buyers (2015 stats) that attend the show over the course of two days. As an attendee you can discover latest products and innovations; and to meet new suppliers, destinations and venues. On top of that, you can choose from a plethora of educational sessions to keep up to date with what's happening in the events industry.
