Are You Ready For The International Confex 2016?

When event professionals, industry experts, top tech companies, and best-in-class suppliers gather in one place, it’s bound to make a buzz!

The yearly International Confex is one such event. If you didn’t attend last year exhibit, here’s a quick recap of what went down at Olympia London.

Looking Back At Last Year’s Confex

The International Confex 2015 wasn’t just well-attended – the event also clarified countless questions and predictions.

First of all, the events industry is growing and will continue to do so! Millennials, in particular, are fans of great experiences – spending £419,556,233 every month buying experiential highs instead of material possessions.

The events industry responded to this growth opportunity accordingly, unveiling innovative products and services at the Confex 2015 including:

  • Social media management tools which link real-life with social media, enabling attendees to sync their Twitter account, event hashtags, and print out pictures taken at a conference or show.
  • Apps on steroids! Apps that nail all of the essentials while allowing event organizers take a deeper look at attendee behavior and measure ROI so they can make the most out of their events.
  • Green platforms for 100% paperless document and data exchanges, greatly reducing paper waste at product launches, networking gigs, and corporate gatherings.
  • Digital graffiti walls that encourage attendees to let their inner Banksy loose while allowing them to interact with their favorite brands and share their artwork via social media.
  • PLUS a ton more!

…all of which help make live and virtual events better, smarter, and personalized.
