International Confex has announced a partnership with North Wales Tourism that will see the destination add to an already extensive range of premium venues and regions represented at the show next year. The destination will be supported by a series of meeting, event and incentive travel companies that help to bring the area to life for event planners.
North Wales are being supported by Visit Wales and Venue Cymru, as well as some of the regionally based businesses within the conference and incentive travel market. Stand sharers include Surf Snowdonia, Zip World, and Giant Hospitality, all of whom join an already packed International Confex, opening next March
“We are delighted that North Wales, with support from Visit Wales, has managed to secure a slot at Confex 2018,” commented Jim Jones, Managing Director, North Wales Tourism. “North Wales was named number four destination to visit on the globe in 2017, by Lonely Planet, and we have a wide and diverse offer when it comes to hosting conferences and incentive travel.”
“Our visitors are constantly looking for new ideas and new perspectives from destinations, as well as completely new ideas for places they can take their events, and North Wales is a gem, that has so much to offer to them,” comments Liz Agostini, Event Director, International Confex. “We have some excellent destinations at the show now with more coming on board every day.”
“North Wales is consistently winning global plaudits for its standard of leisure and tourist options. It is now time that we do the same for the corporate market,” commented Justin Everley, Commercial Manager, Surf Snowdonia. “As a collective, we need to be on the shopping list of senior organisers of events and conferences. Confex 2018 provides the springboard to do this and it is great to see the region coming together to showcase the best of what North Wales has to offer”.
