Mash Media, organiser of the inaugural UK-based Confex Future Focus (CFF), has announced TV presenter Kate Thornton as the keynote speaker for the spin-off exhibition of International Confex.
Thornton, who has presented high profile programmes including The X Factor, Top of the Pops, Loose Women and The Brit Awards, will take to the stage on Thursday 5 July, day two of the show.
“We are thrilled to announce that Kate Thornton will be our keynote speaker at Confex Future Focus. Kate is powerful addition to an already thought provoking line up at our new event Confex Future Focus at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester. She will give her experienced insight into how you can make it right even when it’s all going wrong.” commented Simon Farnfield, event director.
Thornton joins an impressive line up of event industry speakers at the show, from companies including tech giant Cvent, creative engagement group WRG and broadcaster ITV.
Taking its namesake from International Confex, which returns to Olympia London in February 2019, Confex Future Focus aims to highlight the tech, features, topics and trends that will come to define the future of events – from VR and facial recognition to sustainability, security and mental health.
Confex Future Focus will take place on 4-5 July at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester. To find out more about the show or to register to attend visit the Confex Future Focus website.
