LONDON, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

19th- 21st March 2013 sees International Confex, Europe's leading exhibition for event organisers, return to ExCel London!

International Confex looks to be better than ever this year, as it returns with over 900 exhibitors representing the UK events industry, including London & Partners, the NEC and VisitScotland. Millennium & Copthorne Hotels has six hotels in London, which are all situated close to excellent transport links, allowing easy access to the ExCel.

International Confex is a crucial date in the calendar for anybody in the events industry. It offers the opportunity to source new suppliers, meet with existing ones, and network with peers and experts. There is even a specialised networking hub where you can make new contacts or catch up with old ones.  

The layout of the show makes it easy to find the areas and exhibitors that are most relevant to you, as the exhibitors are now divided into three sections: Location, which includes exhibitors supplying accommodation, destinations and party venues, Logistics, which showcases sections such as lighting, furniture hire and travel and transport, and finally Something Special, which will help to provide the finishing touches for events.

A significant addition to this year's show is the increase in the number of seminars. These are available for all show visitors and cover a variety of topics, from logistics to event production and marketing. The speakers are of the highest quality, with some notable speeches from John Prescott and Janet Street-Porter. There will also be a speech from Piers Shepperd, Director at Wonder Works and former Technical Director for the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony.

International Confex will be joining with Live Experience this year; an exhibition of innovative production services and technology for music, sport, experiential and live events. This is even more of a reason not to miss out, so why not make a weekend of it? Millennium & Copthorne's London hotels are all located within the fashionable districts of Kensington, Knightsbridge, Mayfair and Chelsea, and make for the perfect weekend break away.


Millennium & Copthorne Hotels operates a portfolio of over 100 hotels worldwide.
