This week marked the end of the 2019 International Confex conference in Olympia, London. The International Confex, which is the largest gathering of event professionals in London since 1984, inspired event professionals with a packed schedule of keynote speakers, eventtech sessions, and more.
Check out our onsite Aventri team members’ three favorite things that happened at Confex 2019.
1. Mental Health Awareness
Having struggled with mental illness himself, keynote speaker, Will Young, discussed how planners can maintain wellbeing while leading a full and fulfilling life.
In an industry that is so fast-paced, Young notes how mental wellbeing and self-care tips are needed to help planners maintain healthy and happy minds. “Unhappy, stressed, and isolated employees are simply unable to serve themselves or their companies in the best way. Removing the shame, providing safe spaces and concentrating on employees’ wellbeing will create a better brand for the company and make it more welcoming for everyone.” Will Young, Conference News Interview.
