Visitors to International Confex 2012

Visitors to International Confex 2012 who make their way to the Visit Devon stand (B220) will find an even larger group of partners representing Devon than at last year's show. 19 representatives of venues and destinations on the Visit Devon stand will be showing visitors to the exhibition that Devon means business.


Nicky Harding Conference Torquay manager says:
"It is not as easy for one person or organisation to shout about how perfect Devon is as a conference destination but when you bring a group of experts together you can't fail to make your voice heard".

As one of the most picturesque and unique counties in the UK, Devon has a so much variety to offer for a conference. Its outstanding natural environment from moorland to coastline is conducive to clear thinking which is inevitably inspiring and revitalising; a fundamental criteria when looking for a suitable conference destination that will stimulate the Delegates.

In addition, Devon is proving a popular choice as one of the most prominent foodie destinations outside of London, and as conference delegates, like armies, march on their stomachs this will be an important message the team will share with visitors to the Devon Stand. Locally sourced and produced food means less food miles indicating that Devon is a good choice for the environmentally conscious conference organiser.

This year's Devon team comprises of:
Bovey Castle, Brend Hotels, Croyde Bay Conference Centre, Thistle Exeter Rougemont, Mercure Exeter Southgate Hotel, Rill Estate, Event Exeter, Sandy Park Conference Centre, Woodbury Park Hotel and Golf Club, Grand Hotel, Conference Torquay, Barcelo Torquay Imperial Hotel, Riviera International Conference Centre, Conference Plymouth, First Great Western, St. Mellion International Resort, The Cornwall Hotel, Spa and Estate, Warwick Events and Meet Devon.

The team will be holding a drinks reception on the stand at 2.30pm on Tuesday 6th March and 2.30 on Wednesday 7th March and would like as many people as possible to join them.

Throughout the show visitors to the Devon Stand will be entered in a draw for the chance to win one of a huge selection of prizes being offered by the different partners, from weekend breaks in a top Devon hotel to first class rail tickets. The Draw will take place during each of the drinks receptions.
It promises to be a successful event for the team and they are looking forward to showing the conference industry all that Devon has to offer.

To visit the team at International Confex 2012, they will be on stand B220 or for more information contact Sarah James sjames@ricc.co.uk or 01803 206 303.
