Confex 18 Feb. 2015 - Olympia London




Education and knowledge sharing within the industry are key elements of Confex and 2015 will be our most tailored programme to date.

With outstanding content over two days and across 4 theatres, Confex will be presenting 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 can take advantage of campfire sessions and tours on the show floor as well as a variety of stand presentations.  More information on this year's new features can be found here.

We are pleased to welcome our keynote speakers

  • Kelly Hoppen MBE, star of the BBC Two show Dragon’s Den and ambassador for the government’s GREAT campaign.

Taking to the stage on Thursday 19th February, Kelly will be talking about ‘Why Britain’s got talent’ focusing on creativity, design, entrepreneurship and her role for the GREAT campaign.

  • 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 will be sharing his experience on the mistakes he made and throwing light on how he picked himself up after 'that' gaffe to run a successful business.

CPD Certified


The International Confex seminar programme will once again qualify for CPD learning points. This accreditation means that attending seminars hosted in all theatres now counts towards delegates’ Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.

CPD is defined as ‘a commitment to structured skills enhancement and personal or professional competence’ and organisations that are granted membership by the CPD Certification Service must clearly demonstrate expertise in their field and provide a place for industry to turn to for advice and guidance.

Attendees will have their visitor badges scanned on their way into each theatre for each educational session they attend. At the end of the show, the number of session attended will be tallied and a certificate of attendance will be issued electronically stating the number of points that can be claimed in line with the CPD requirements of your professional body or employer organisation.

Confex which takes place 18th - 19th February 2015, will be running an extensive free two-day seminar programme, the programme will be revealed later in the year - watch this space!
