Conference Devon showcases its facilities to an international audience

Conference Devon is to showcase its services and facilities to influential decision makers across the UK and Europe when it exhibits at International Confex, the leading event for conference organisers.

Confex, which takes place over three days from February 12 to 14 at London's Earls Court, brings together providers of venues, destinations as well as event support services.

Several members of Conference Devon, including Conference Torquay, who run Conference Devon, and Torquay's Riviera International Conference Centre, will be exhibiting at the show.

Nicky Harding, Conference Bureau manager, Conference Torquay, said: "Confex is probably the most well-known exhibition of its kind, bringing together all aspects of conferencing both nationally and internationally.

"Exhibitors include venues, bureaus, event organisers, event placement companies and suppliers of conference related products and services. Conference organisers from all over the UK and Europe will be at the event as it's such a great opportunity for them to find all the information they need under one roof.

"It's important Conference Devon and its members including Conference Torquay and RICC attends events like this in order to show exactly what we have on offer in the county and what we can do for event organisers."

And she said that building relationships with potential clients and catching up with existing ones is far more effective carried out face to face.

She said: "A huge proportion of our business is based on building relationships with the client and there's no better vehicle for this than attending exhibitions such as Confex." So Nicky is hopeful of gaining some prestigious business from the event.

Also exhibiting under the Conference Devon banner at Confex will be Torquay's TLH Leisure Resort, The Imperial and Grand Hotel, Thurleston Hotel, Bovey Castle, Exeter's Mercure Southgate Hotel, Thistle Hotel and Sandy Park Conference Centre, Plymouth Pavillions and Warwick Corporate Events based in Honiton.

There will be a prize draw open to anyone who makes an enquiry with the stand with prizes donated by the various participating venues.
