Lee Newton’s interview at the International Confex 2017

The International Confex, described as a leading event for the industry, is a priority in the calendar of more than 6,000 event professionals, including high-flying international delegates. Held at the iconic Olympia London, it brought the most knowledgeable speakers and collaborators alongside media partners, events’ organisers and service providers.

A guest speaker, Media 10 CEO Lee Newton discussed the “pitfalls of taking events abroad” including Media 10’s early beginnings in China; in a panel mediated by AEO Chief Executive Officer, Chris Skeith.

Lee Newton also talked exclusively to Exhibition World about UK Construction Week: the event which delivers nine diverse exhibitions under one roof, including 325 seminars & workshops, more than 1,000 exhibitors and attracts over 30,000 visitors. 

What we learned from Lee: 

  • The inspiration for the concept of UK Construction Week has been ‘building’ for 30 years, since Lee’s first job.
  • “UK Construction Week is a place for information. It’s a place for meeting other professionals. It’s a place for connection.”
  • “UK Construction Week is not just about building houses. It’s about development, infra-structure, hospitals and highways.”
