International Confex 2012

8 Mar

As a freelance Event Manager I would recommend going to Confex. It’s a huge exhibition which was held down at ExCel, where venues, logistics firms, performers, caterers and AV suppliers gather to show off their latest offerings all under one roof. It’s very handy to keep your finger on the events pulse, and you get to see all the exciting new ideas available for entertainment and activities!

I went down there with a fellow Freelance Event Manager and came out of there with a bag full of business cards, heaps of ideas and lots of delicious sweets! Got the chance to taste some amazing canapes from Molecular Bubble who create futuristic, innovative ideas for menus that will definitely be a talking point at any event (even tried an apple pie mousse which was devine!). They also offer a liquid nitrogen cooler which can create some incredible canapes!!

Also had a go on an interactive graffitti wall for the first time with YrWall, who after having a look on their website were financed by a few Dragons from Dragons Den! Their wall is amazing. Instead of paint, when the cap is pressed the can ‘sprays’ infra red light, which is tracked by a computer as it moves across the screen. The digital paint appears wherever the can is sprayed, just like spraying paint on a real wall. Brilliant!

Lots of great contacts made and a great afternoon chatting events with fellow lovers of the industry. Would recommend going if you need to continually have a good idea of what is going on in the industry!!
