Yesterday a few of the team left the office for the day and headed to the International Confex at the Olympia London. Confex is the leading exhibition for the events industry and one that we like to attend to make sure we have an idea of whats going on out there and it also gives us a great opportunity to catch up with contacts and clients.
Throughout the day we met a wide range of venues and hotels, technology companies, suppliers, tourist boards, like minded event professionals, several clients and even a professional croquet player! Don’t ask.. see the pictures below!
We also thoroughly enjoyed watching a few seminars and listening to some talks from guest speakers (organised by Performing Artistes); with the standout performance for us being Dave Fishwick from ‘The Bank of Dave’! A true David and Goliath story from the modern day and an all round great inspirational guy! Our MD Simon is a true fan of Dave’s ‘no nonsense straight talking’ and remembered Dave’s love of eating bananas from the TV show, so he grabbed a moment of Dave’s time by taking the initiative to go and source him one (to which he stapled his business card) before he disappeared! Simon has a habit of grabbing peoples attention in stand out ways and believes as a company, we should always be ‘thinking outside the box’, especially as event organisers.
There aren’t too many exhibitions throughout the year that we make sure to attend but we will look forward to another exhibition next year from Mash Media!
We took a few pictures of our highlights from the day including the aforementioned croquet, Jigantics Flowers and Dave Fishwick from the Bank of Dave!
