International Confex has been an incredible event for yet another year. With a range of exhibitors from venues to experience to technology to caterers, it’s been a non-stop hum of activity.
EN were on-site at Confex reporting, and here are just a few of the stands and technology that stood out to us:
Farnborough Conference Centre: Farnborough Conference Centre came to Confex to promote the unique event space, which is home to the Farborough Airshow, and is located next to Farnborough Airport.
Service Robots UK: Service Robots UK brought its interactive robots to Confex. The four robots, named Eva, Lily, Amy and Tour, can perfom a variety of functions, from giving attendees a survey to providing customer service.
Harrogate Conference Centre: Harrogate Conference Centre’s stand was promoting its partnership with LNER, as the train line runs a direct service to the venue six times a day, directly linking it to London and making it an option for those who want to not only appeal to those in London, but also those in the surrounding area.
Slido: Slido demonstrated at Confex how its technology is being used to power engagement across events, by promoting ‘quizzes’ where attendees can guess the answer to questions, as well as its established polling feature.
Destination Brooklands: Destination Brooklands chose Confex as the place to promote both Mercedes-Benz Brooklands and the Brooklands Hotel, saying that the two venues are not only places to host an event, but are an experience.
Clownfish Events: Clownfish Events brought a fully interactive stand to Confex, complete with games including a VR video game and a claw machine. EN’s junior news reporter Olivia Powell even managed to win a prize!
Brella Network: Brella Network’s stand showcased how it can connect attendees at events through an easy to use, reliable app that even has an event calendar.
Eikon: Eikon, a venue located in Ireland, chose Confex to show off its features. Built in 2015, it has 10,600sqm of exhibition space and 4,000 free car parking spaces, which is unusual for Ireland. It also sits on 65 acres of space, good for outside events too, and is just 90 mins from four million people.
Far Faces: Advanced Face Recognition were promoting its mobile phone facial recognition app Far Faces, which can be used for fast-track entry, data capture and security at events.
