Conferenz MD, Steve Scott, was thrilled with the response to the show and voted the event ‘high energy’.
“This is the outcome of planning put into place in June/July last year, when the event was supposed to take place in October. We had planned it to be a bit smaller – right-sized for COVID times – but even so the plans and thoughts we were crafting had to change,” he says.
“We brought the event to this venue because we wanted to contain it to keep energy levels up. So we planned this but, actually, with the amount of support we got from partners and attendees, we could have reinstituted last year’s plans to hold it at Spark Arena.
“Certainty in the market has only come this year. The blips didn’t undermine the confidence of the exhibitors and sponsors. Exhibitors have been very positive and attendees have seen it as a great opportunity for personal development – the two-day ticket option was the most popular.
“We are really looking forward to 2022 and can start preparing for it from a very confident position. It will also be in March,” he concludes.
