For the last 37 years, event professionals from all over the world meet up in London for International Confex, Each February brands, agencies, event planners, and suppliers share their ideas on how to transform events into unforgettable experiences, making it UK’s leading attraction for event profs. In 2020 we will be back at Confex to discuss with event planners and entertainment venues managers how to kickstart their local economy. Yes, the event or venue can (and should) be seen as a local economy…inside a local community. Better said…the Economy as a Service software.
The economic impact festival and events have over small communities is critical – but so it’s the way event professionals manage payments inside (and outside!) of the site of the event. Because it’s time to push the event economy outside it’s geographical “borders”.
We’ll be over at L24C stand. We have some great gifts but also some new ideas on how to:
- Increase your revenue.
- Speed-up transactions.
- Onboard new vendors.
- Have detailed live reports. Data is the new oil and we believe that event industry professionals are not using this to its full potential.
- Decrease fraud. And losses. And bad experiences.
- Better use your staff. Team members should concentrate on what really matters, technology can take care of the repetitive tasks.
But most of all we want to talk about how the event’s economy can exceed the event’s area. How can the community benefit from it more, all while the event itself benefits from the community’s involvement? All using a mobile-first app that allows you to set up your own local economy.
