Confex reports rise in visitor figures

International Confex has reported a rise in visitor attendance, with on-site figures for 2006 at 7,289 compared with 7,198 in 2005. Total attendance (visitor and exhibitors) was over 11,000. Event director Duncan Reid said: “It’s still early days but everything indicates that Confex 2006 was a success. Preliminary on-site figures indicate that visitor attendance is slightly higher than in 2005.  Onsite re-bookings were up by a massive 37% which implies that exhibitors are keen to return for 2007, while initial exhibitor feedback indicates that they were happy with both the quality and quantity of the visitor audience.” CMPi managing director Trevor Barratt said: “CMPi is committed to the future of Confex. The 2006 event has proved that the show is still an effective format for buyers and exhibiting companies to conduct business, but we cannot stand still so we are investing further to ensure Confex’s continuing success.”
