2024 Highlights

international confex 2023

the 20245 event was nothing short of incredible

On 28-29 February 2024, we rolled out the red carpet for thousands of event planners, pulling back the curtain to reveal a playground of the latest and greatest in events and forecasted trends. From AI tattoos to 3D chocolate selfie pops, the floor plan was a showcase of future possibilities.

Dates have now been announced for 26-27 February 2025 and we can't wait to welcome even more #eventprofs to the show where innovation meets inspiration. Whether you're planning a 15-stream conference, an intimate roundtable, awards, large-scale exhibition, or anything in between, there's always someone for you to meet at Confex

Taking place in the North Gallery Suites, Fast Forward 15 offered attendees a unique charity opportunity on-site.

With rails upon rails of designer clothing available for purchase at significantly discounted rates, the Fast Forward 15 team raised proceeds for Newlife, the charity for disabled children. Alongside the boutique, the gallery suites hosted small-scale content sessions featuring speakers such as Penny Moyses, Fay Sharpe, Lucy Cave, Dani Dawkins, and more.

And it didn't stop there! In further support of the Newlife charity, brave attendees took to ExCeL London early on 29 February to join the Go! Running Tours team for a 5k jog!
