London's International Confex has confirmed a number of new overseas exhibitors debuting at next year's show.
First time international exhibitors include:
- Tourism Australia
- Cayman Islands
- Orlando Convention Bureau
- Malaysia National Tourist Board.
"There is still a lot of positive news from the global events market indicating that while the economic downturn has had an effect, there is still a positive outlook," said event director Duncan Reid.
The three-day show takes place at Earl's Court from 24-26 February 2009.
New features include the ‘Taste the World' bar and ‘Around the World in 80 Seconds' - a speed-dating style set-up for buyers and suppliers.
