Next year the event industry’s largest constellation of shows, International Confex, Event Production Show and PA Show in the UK will be hosted at ExCeL London. The events will take place Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th February 2020. The move supports Mash Media’s ambitions for growth for each event and will be the backdrop for UK Events’ Week, a focus on the UK’s meetings, event, and exhibition industries worth an estimated £43bn annually to the UK economy.
The ExCeL team will be working closely with the newly appointed advisory board to ensure the event develops and grows in line with changing customer needs. James Rees, Executive Director of ExCeL, as the current ICCA President, will provide unique insight and perspective to support this process.
In recent years, we have seen exponential growth in our meetings and congress business. International Confex, Event Production Show and PA Show are the ideal platform for bringing our industry together to exchange ideas, network and share innovation. This is an opportunity to demonstrate much of what makes ExCeL the home of world leading events, including the flexibility of the spaces, the cutting edge services and broad range of promotional and media inventory for brand amplification, and the focus on guest experience.
Julian Agostini, Mash Media Managing Director commented: “One of the crucial aspects of the move is the partnership we can build with the team at ExCeL London who are committed to working with us in developing the future strategy for these events, in particular International Confex. As far as the Event Production Show is concerned ExCeL London allows the show, and its exhibitors, to really demonstrate the power of outdoor and live events. Increasing the number and size of theatres for The PA Show is paramount to enable us to continue the focus on CPD training for this audience.”
ExCeL London looks forward to welcoming you next year to the UK’s biggest celebration of the events industry.
