As previously reported in Event, RSVP’s UK manager Single Market Events (SME) ended its contract with Exhibitions and Trade Fairs (ETF) in June, casting doubt over the future of the show.

"I am pleased to advise that an agreement has been reached with UBM to incorporate the RSVP London show into International Confex, ensuring an even better opportunity for buyers and sellers in 2012," ETF general manager and CEO Jodie Richmond told Event.

Confex event director Jonny Sullens said the agreement "underlines" the exhibition’s place as the "primary show" in the industry.

"The time is right for the entire events industry to unite under one roof and lay on an inspirational showcase as part of Britain for Events - the annual marketing campaign designed to promote Britain as a world class destination for events," he said.

"RSVP was a show that had a lot of loyal visitors and exhibitors and this move will give a new home to both, giving them a ‘live’ environment in which to buy and sell the services they need."

The latest news follows the announcement of Confex’s move to Excel London for its 2012 edition on 6 – 8 March 2012. 

UBM will be announcing the vision for its 2012 event next month.
