International Confex

An Inspiring Week at International Confex and The Event Production Show

We were thrilled to catch up with fellow Fast Forward 15 Alumni, and Fay Sharpe OBE, and extend our support to this year’s cohort by attending their outstanding charity event. Huge congratulations to all involved for their efforts in raising vital funds for New Life.

One highlight was the thought-provoking panels at The Power of Events Theatre, particularly the enlightening ‘State of the Nation’ discussion by industry leaders like Rick Stainton (Smyle) and Michael Gietzen (Identity). We wholeheartedly agree that the demand for resources is stretched, which is why we’re committed to doing more to retain and incentivise our team. That’s why we’ve introduced the Implementorship, a training and reward scheme aimed at empowering our staff.

The Sustainable Theatre sessions left us feeling inspired, especially by the journeys of Dale Parmenter (DRPG) and Elizabeth Heron (OrangeDoor) towards becoming B Corp certified. We’re dedicated to our own sustainability journey and excited to collaborate with our clients to make a positive impact on our planet. To lead this initiative, we’ve appointed Alice Lucy as our Sustainability Lead, tasked with continually assessing and improving the environmental and social impacts of our daily operations.

Our time at Confex was also invaluable for networking. We had the pleasure of meeting fantastic suppliers, exploring opportunities with potential new clients, and rekindling connections with existing ones. These interactions remind us of the strength and vibrancy of our industry, and we’re grateful for the relationships forged and strengthened during these two days.
