Pre-ABC-audited attendance figures indicate that across the show's three days, 1,367 visitors attended from the co-located event the Technology for Marketing Show.
Confex event director Duncan Reid said: "After taking over the ailing show three years ago, we feel that Confex is where it should be now. The next step is to improve our offering again for next year."
Confex Knowledge, the show's education programme, included seminars, an advice centre and a CV clinic. Keynote speakers included chef Jean-Christophe Novelli.
