"Ultimately, by placing a strict limit on the number of students able to attend the show, this has affected the numbers," said Confex Group portfolio director Jonny Sullens.

"But for us and our exhibitors, it is more important to deliver the quality and facilitate business. With our move to Excel London next year, we have a platform with which to enhance and take the show to the next dimension. Its location will help us tap into new audiences such as corporates located at Canary Wharf and facilitate the growth of our hosted buyer scheme through the links with London City Airport."

Hosted buyers took part in 860 meetings with exhibitors on the show floor, and the event featured a new floorplan divided into ‘Location’, ‘Logistics’ and ‘Something Special’ areas.
