5 Must-Do’s At International Confex 2017

Stephen Kim

In less than a week, companies from around the world gather at the Olympia exhibition center in London to take part in UK’s leading conference for event professionals. With thousands of attendees and a completely packed agenda, navigating such a massive conference might get overwhelming. To help with that, here are a few tips that will ensure you get the most out of your time at Interational Confex 2017.

1) Attend the Speeches at EventTech Theatre

With 9 different theatres spread throughout the venue, there can be up to 15 different presenters speaking at the same time. To make the best use of your time, make sure to attend the presentations that will add the most value. Given the event industry’s growing affinity for tech, it would be the most worthwhile to listen to talks that shed light on how tech trends and gadgets are influencing the space. It is crucial for event professionals to stay ahead of the curve and EventTech Theatre will surely be focused on informing attendees about the latest trends.


2) Visit the Bizzabo Booth (E11T)

In between presentations at EventTech Theatre, check out one of the fastest growing event tech companies in the market—yup, that’s us 🙂 Especially if you’re searching for an event management software that can help you manage all aspects of planning an event, make sure to come by our booth for a quick demo of our product.

3) Waltz Through Holland Park

After a full day of networking and presentations, it’s important to slow things down and take in your surroundings. Just a 10 minute walk from the Olympia venue, Holland Park is a wonderful outdoor space with its own museum and opera theatre. Take nice stroll through the park and enjoy pleasant scenery such as the Kyoto Garden. After a long day with a busy schedule, you’ll deserve it.


4) Check Out UK Events Week

Though Confex alone might be enough “conferencing” for you and your team, keep in mind that the entire week is full of amazing events for organizers to attend. UK Events Week officially starts on February 27th and ends on March 3rd. Smaller events such as Eventovation London will provide more intimate settings that will make it easier to meet people and build connections.

5) Win a Day at Daytona

By simply attending Confex, you and your team can enter the lottery to win a full day team building/conference package at any Daytona for up to 45 participants. The package includes half day use of the meeting room, 3 servings of refreshments, the Grand Prix Grill Lunch, and a 1.5 hour team endurance race. All you have to do is take a selfie at the Daytona Motor Sports Stand (E1C) and share the photo on Twitter using the hashtag #KartwithConfex.

International Confex 2017 will surely be two days of fascinating discussions, crucial learnings, and lots of fun. For organizers interested learning more in a powerful event management platform, be sure to schedule an appointment with the Bizzabo team by clicking the button below.
