ExCeL London on the first two days of March is where you’ll find the UK’s meetings and events industry, brought together by International Confex to network, source from over 300 exhibitors, attend over 150 education sessions and to discover the latest in technology solutions.

This year, Cvent is playing an extra special role in this annual industry showcase. Not only will you be able to speak to us on-stand (E20C) or hear from our experts as we take to the conference stage to deliver insight and inspiration, we’re also supporting a couple of key show initiatives.

Give A Hand At Confex

The first is ‘Give A Hand At Confex’. This 90-minute workshop, to be held on the first day of the exhibition, will provide a unique opportunity for 100 planners to get stuck-in and build prosthetic hands for adults and children in need.

Hosted by David Meade (pictured), it’s a real chance to give something back by creating life-changing prosthetics which will be sent out post-show.

CN 30underThirty

Our second involvement is to support the next generation of industry leaders by sponsoring the CN 30underThirty.

This annual initiative recognises the industry’s exceptional talent; showcasing their achievements and rewarding their passion, creativity and brilliance. 

A list of this year’s 30 rising stars under the age of 30 was revealed today (Monday 13 February) and the nominees will be formally recognised at an awards ceremony to close International Confex on 2 March.

During the two days of the exhibition itself, the Cvent team will be on-hand to discuss how our unique platform and suite of tools can help you save time, reduce costs and track the ROI of your entire meetings and events programme.

In advance of the show, if you’d like to make an appointment to speak to one of our on-stand product experts, you can do so here.

Will You Marry Me?

Last, but by no means the least of our Confex show activity, our very own Senior Marketing Manager for Europe, Felicia Asiedu will present ‘Will You Marry Me? The Shift From Short-term Engagement to Long-lasting Relationships’ in the Sales & Marketing Excellence Theatre at 10am on the second day.

Felicia will unpack how you can keep connected and create year-round engagement, using both content and your events programme to build deeper, more personal audience relationships that will last a lifetime.

Make sure you join her for what promises to be a knowledgeable and insightful talk on building engaged communities around your meetings and events.

To experience Cvent’s event technology in-person, don’t forget to stop by stand E20C or schedule an appointment with one of the team today.

We look forward to seeing you at the show!
