Confex 2015 - Programme

Confex 2016




Education and knowledge sharing within the industry were key elements of Confex and 2015 was our most tailored programme to date.

With outstanding content over two days and across 4 theatres, Confex presented a range of fresh ideas and innovative ways of thinking focussing heavily on Technology, Innovation, Sales, Marketing & Communications and International Business.

In addition to the traditional seminar format, visitors could take advantage of campfire sessions and tours on the show floor as well as a variety of stand presentations.  More information on 2015's features can be found here.

Our keynote speakers

  • Clare Balding, freelance presenter, writer and broadcaster, Clare has worked in radio for over 15 years, has been a leading sports presenter on television and a star pundit for the London 2012 Olympic TV coverage.

Taking to the stage on Thursday 19th February, Clare talked about ‘Why Britain’s got talent’ , shared her experiences working on some of the UK’s major sporting events and the talent that Britain has in delivering world class events. She brought plenty of inspiration and anecdotes gained from working with world class athletes on some of the UK’s greatest events and shows. Her unbridled passion for sport is a quality that we can all learn from.

  • Gerald Ratner, entrepreneur and author of The Rise and Fall and Rise again of a Jewellery Empire.

Speaking on Wednesday 18th February, Gerald’s fall from grace was one of the most spectacular ever seen in our times.  He shared his experience on the mistakes he made and threw light on how he picked himself up after 'that' gaffe to run a successful business.
