  • "I attended International Confex which was an incredible opportunity to network with professionals from the event industry. From ground-breaking technology to incredible feature builders it was a day filled with inspiration. It was also phenomenal to watch the transformation in the importance of sustainability and the event industry’s response to it. Conversations around Carbon labelling, Behaviour Change and Data-Driven sustainability are taking shape and will drive green events in the future!"
    George P Johnson Experience Marketing
  • "To some, it may be just another conference/exhibition, but for those in the trenches of the events world it’s a welcome release to see the latest and greatest our #eventsindustry has to offer and a chance to have some great conversations with your fellow #eventprofs - don’t mind if I do! For the Great British Events Company, this year felt very different with the brand recognised more than ever and even myself (probably to do with the hats 🎩) It was just lovely catching up with those we’d worked with last year and even better to meet those we’re about to.. 🚀💪"
    Great British Events Co
  • "It was an amazing experience where I got to interact with potential vendors, try out some cool new products/services and attend live sessions about adapting to trends in the events industry. I also got to attend an engaging and informative live session by Jill Knox and Luke Buckley about virtual/live event data and how to prove ROI! Can’t wait for International Confex 2024!"
