It’s been a week since International CONFEX (19th – 21st March) in London closed its doors. How time flies in the world of events! It seems only yesterday we were unwrapping our Christmas gifts and now we’re slowly wrapping up the month of March! It’s funny that in a world based on people contact you really seem to sometimes miss keeping in touch with your fellow colleagues and peers. CONFEX is a great opportunity to meet old acquaintances, get to know new people and hear people’s enthusiasm for the services we offer.

This year we were part of an elite selection of venues that were brought forth under the Meet Birmingham umbrella. It was great to see so many people who recognise the advantages of holding meetings in the Birmingham area. More than ever, people realise that the West Midlands is a great hub for business and recent developments have really turned around people’s opinion about the city.

Julian Kettleborough, Commercial Director along with the team at thestudio are always happy to help agencies and companies with questions and queries and enjoyed the company and the nice little treats provided by the Meet Birmingham team and the Confex goody bags. Our visitors enjoyed our very own brain-friendly fruit and nut mix which is available whenever your book a room at thestudio. Some really interesting topics were debated at the live experience theatres. There’s no shortage of guests hungry to learn more about the industry and future trends.

One thing in particular was really exciting for us as a business: the press release announcing the growth of our venue in Birmingham! Keep checking our website for news about this and many other interesting projects we’re currently developing.

Did you attend International CONFEX this year? Tell us what you thought about it. Was it useful attending? Did it help your business? How? We’re really keen to know. Just comment here or use our @studiovenues Twitter page.

Wishing you all HAPPY EASTER!
