International Confex has agreed a strategic partnership with ICE Group, as the event continues to grow its corporate visitors.
The agreement will see ICE involved in the Confex conference programme, a VIP networking event within the show, as well as providing members of the ICE community with a complimentary VIP upgrade.
The ICEAwards will take place 12 July 18, in central London and, alongside the organisation’s other initiatives, ICEDay and ICEOnline, bring together senior corporate event planners to share experiences, create educational opportunities, and network. The session being created by ICEAwards will be on day two of Confex, and focus on how to use awards to market your business. The session will include previous winners, from EY and The Stroke Association.
There will also be a networking opportunity hosted alongside GES in the Confex Main Bar, exclusively for members of ICE, at the end of day two. The event will give audiences a chance to learn more about the ICEAwards, following the seminar earlier that day.
“We’re expecting more corporate visitors to the show than ever before, so we’re delighted to be giving ICEAwards the opportunity to bring more people into their community, whilst providing amazing content for our conference programme,” comments Liz Agostini, event director, International Confex. “Our research shows that corporate visitors want to network with their peers, but also to find new partners to work with and seek inspiration from the show floor.”
“We’re really excited to be bringing ICEAwards to International Confex, and to share the work we’re doing with corporate meeting and event planners,” comments Anita Howard, Founder and Director if the ICE Group. “We’re looking forward to expanding our community and meeting more businesses that want to engage with this important audience.”
International Confex recently released visitor growth figures of over 35 per cent for its 2017 show and is expecting another boost for its 2018 outing. For more details visit www.international-confex.com.
