Last week I took a day out to attend Confex at Olympia partly as I was curious to hear speakers including, Alistair Campbell but also because I haven't attended this show before and I was interested in some of the advertised content.
I listened to some interesting thoughts on brand and marketing and met some great new companies, or at least new to me, and came away with a head full of new ideas but I guess that's what it's all about.
There are some fun and interesting suppliers and new contacts that I will certainly keep in contact with in case anyone contracting me needs something new or different. I even tried a Pimms alchopop: purely research. :)
