Confex secures a host of new international exhibitors for 2009

Visitors will witness an explosion in the number of global companies exhibiting at conference and events show International Confex next year, according to the organisers.

The event, which takes place at Earl’s Court from 24-26 February, will include stands for Tourism Australia, north Cyprus Tourism Centre, The Cayman Islands, Orlando Convention Bureau, Malaysia National Tourist Board, Tiara Hotels & Resorts and Hotel Republic and the leading website www.venuefinder.com/international for the first time.

“Confex really mirrors the events industry on a local and international scene and this is reflected by our exhibitors,” said event director Duncan Reid. “Not only have activities been stepped up, but there is still a lot of positive news from the global events market indicating that while the economic downturn has had an effect, there is still a positive outlook.

“We also have many new features this year, which embody the international flavour on offer, including the Taste the World Bar and Around the World in 80 Seconds feature.”

At the new Taste the World Bar, visitors have the opportunity to experience other cultures through the interactive showcase, which will enable them to try something a bit different.

Meanwhile, the Around the World in 80 Seconds feature provides a chance for buyers to ‘speed-date’ international venues to assess their suitability without cutting into their busy schedules.

Buyers will be able to book a morning or afternoon session to meet international exhibitors in manageable 80-second intervals and put their event queries to them. This then enables visitors to network efficiently and quickly decide if a venue or destination is for them and if it warrants a more in depth meeting at a later date.

The new international exhibitors will be joining other big destinations and venues in the international sector of the show, including ADNEC, German Convention Bureau, Greek National Tourism Organisation, Abu Dhabi, India Tourist Office, Visit Sweden, Malta Tourist Office, Barbados Tourist Authority, Greater Miami CVB, Maritim Jolie Ville Resorts Egypt, Switzerland, as well as Cuba Tourist Board and Mallorca to name just a few.
