Confex 2020: Our Best Bits!

Wow, we can’t believe International Confex is over for another year! We had a super busy and successful week making new contacts, and catching up with all of our friends from the industry.
With our main offices based in London, we had the opportunity to bring along a lot of our local team, including John, Johnny, Maggie, Pritesh, Lorena, Xane, Diana, Sabirin, and Simona.

This year, we had a prize wheel at our stand, for visitors to try their luck on. We had some lucky winners taking home portable speakers, loads of chocolate, and bottles of bubbly.
Speaking of bubbles, we were lucky to be stand-neighbours with the entertaining Bubble Inc, and also Heaps + Stacks, who kept us well fed on Pancake Day.

Day 1 kicked off with a session from our CEO, John Martinez: “Top tips & tricks to weave wellness into your event life”. His presentation included a live, guided meditation. With their eyes closed, and shoulders relaxed, the audience made sure their Confex got off to a nice, relaxing start.
Next up was a session from Pritesh Mawdia, our Head of Tech Support and Development, about “Tech for sustainable events”. Pritesh shared some of the ways Shocklogic can help to make paperless events a reality, by using tech such as ePosters, and mobile apps.

In the afternoon, our Head of Marketing and Business Development, Johnny D. Martinez, took to the Keynote Stage to discuss “Festivalisation: creating the ultimate multi-sensory event experience”. There are lots of elements from festivals that we can introduce to our events, to keep them fresh and exciting.
Johnny was also interviewed a couple of times during the show, by Mash Media, and YOU Search & Select. Look out for these videos in the near future!

We hope your Confex was as successful as ours, and we are already looking forward to being back in 2021!
