Mash Media, the organiser of International Confex are set to light up the events industry next spring with the launch of UK Events Week.

 

Taking place from 29 February to 4 March 2016, the week will include International Confex and the Event Production Show at London Olympia, and arrives fittingly at the culmination of Britain for Events.

 

UK Events Week will use events to sell and celebrate events with a week long programme of board room discussions, chat rooms, celebrations, seminars, conferences and mini exhibitions.

 

Sessions will have representatives from key industry figures and C level execs from multi-national corporates, the top 20 event agencies, PCOs, associations, leading venues, government and media.

 

Broadly divided into three main streams of Business, Marketing and Industry, events already scheduled for the week, range from a Chief Executive Dinner to a presentation from UK Sport on how to pull together a match winning bid team. The programme also consists of key seminars, conferences and exhibitions which will include key members of the industry as well as representation from associations, venues, government and media.

 

“International Confex and EPS already attract over 10,000 event industry professionals to West London from all over the UK” commented event director, Liz Agostini. “It makes perfect sense when the two largest shows are in town to extrapolate from these two days and expand the stage for the UK Events Industry, providing a week long forum as a home for debate, discussion, education and celebration of an industry which makes such a significant contribution to the UK Economy.”

 

Meanwhile, International Confex is already projecting a growth in floor space again, with a large increase in new and returning exhibitors increasing both the size and impact of their stands.

 

The Event Production Show which has moved to a larger space in Olympia National has already sold out completely on the ground floor with over 40 per cent of the exhibitors attending the show for the first time.

 

Agostini continued: “The feedback that we have from our visitors is that Confex is a real ’must-attend’ attend event. Confex transcends the pure transactional, with business being conducted and deals signed in an environment that is vibrant, exciting, social and inspirational.”
