If you’re looking to get up to speed on the latest developments in the Event Industry, hear inspiring keynotes from thought leaders, or rub elbows with other professionals, conferences are the place to be.

The hard part is sifting through all the conferences to identify the ones that are truly worth your time and money. We’ve taken care of this for you by compiling a very short, but still comprehensive list of five of the most interesting European professional events in 2018.

1. International Confex

International Confex is the biggest event industry event in the UK providing two days of face-to-face business and networking opportunities.

Attracting over 8,000 unique visitors and over 300 solution providing suppliers, it provides the ideal platform to connect with senior event organizers of both inbound and outbound events.

Whether planning your next conference, exhibition, awards ceremony or meeting you will gain creative ideas to make your events more engaging and innovative.
2. Ticketing Business Forum

April 17-18, Manchester, UK
Ticketing is a crucial thing for any event professional.

The Ticketing Business Forum is the leading European event. The Forum addresses the specific needs of key executives engaged in the development and implementation of entertainment ticketing solutions.

If you want to be aware of the latest ticketing technologies or have ever thought about changing your ticketing platform, this is the right event to visit.
3. IMEX Frankfurt

May 15-17, Frankfurt, Germany
Aside from the IMEX Las Vegas, which we’ve covered in our previous list, IMEX Frankfurt is one of the largest European conferences for event planners.

With more than 3,500-plus venues and suppliers from 150-plus countries and more than 180-plus education session in one place, IMEX is one of the best places to learn the latest trends in the event industry and meet with industry leaders.
4. IBTM World

TBA, Barcelona, Spain
Known as the leading global conference for the events space, IBTM World brings together the brightest minds in the industry. With over 15,000 professionals in attendance, the opportunities to build valuable partnerships will be plenty.

If you are able to visit only one conference a year, we would advise you to choose this one.
5. Event Tech Live

TBA, London, UK
Event Tech Live is the largest and coolest event dedicated to technologies in the entertainment industry. Organized annually, it brings together all major developers of technology products for event organizers in the European and American markets.

It lasts for only one day. But still, it is enough to cover the entire range of solutions and shape the market of the technology for events. And unlike other industry events, it embraces a minimum number of venues (platforms for rent), fully focusing on technology companies.

We have attended this conference in 2017 and it was an amazing time. Find out more about our Event Tech Live experience here.
