Confex reveals "strongest ever" speaker line-up

International Confex has unveiled its “strongest-ever” keynote speaker line-up for this year’s show, which includes Michelin-starred chef Jean-Christophe Novelli and Coffee Republic founder Sahar Hashemi. Novelli will speak about the importance of food in delivering successful events and Hashemi focus on achieving professional goals at the exhibition, which will be held at Earls Court, London on 12-14 February. Rohit Talwar, who leads events think tank Fast Future, is scheduled to open the show with a presentation on the future of conferences, events and exhibitions. Confex Group director Duncan Reid said that content was the main focus when selecting this year’s keynote speakers. “This is our strongest speaker line-up ever,” said Reid. “There’s something there for every planner – from the PA who organises one or two events annually, through to the professional planner, who has organised events for years and wants to be challenged by the content.”
