International Confex launches Confex Future Focus, Manchester

Simon Farnfield, Event Director
International Confex is delighted to announce a new addition to the Confex portfolio with the launch of Confex Future Focus, which will take place on July 4th & 5th 2018 at Victoria Warehouse, Manchester.

Simon Farnfield, Event Director explains the rationale behind the launch, “The North, and North West of England in particular, is a hugely vibrant and innovative hub of the UK events industry where both corporates and agencies are producing ground-breaking and spectacular events across the globe. Event planners are undoubtedly time impoverished and those outside the south-east struggle to allocate 2 days out of their schedules to attend International Confex in London, but moreover, why should they have to?

Confex Future Focus will deliver the same inspirational content as International Confex, and while this is a platform for venues to engage with event planners of all denominations, it’s also an amazing opportunity to tap into Manchester’s scientific heritage and showcase the latest innovation and tech that underpins the successful delivery of impactful events

We’re excited to be launching at Victoria Warehouse which fully encapsulates the values of Confex Future Focus with its marriage of heritage and mission to be the UK’s most creatively ambitious event space”.

Stefan Maciejewski, MD at Victoria Warehouse added ‘ The team is thrilled to be the host venue for Confex Future Focus and delighted to be bringing Mash Media’s launch to the north of England. With Mash as the media and events hub for the entire MICE industry, we’re really looking forward to working with them and welcoming so many event professionals to our iconic and quintessentially Mancunian venue.’
