The show takes place on 26th and 27th of February at Olympia, London and you will find us located at the front of the show on stand B24C. This London Exhibition is worth a visit for event professionals so make sure you come and say hello to our team! You will find us at Trade Stand B24C, it will be the Trade Stand full of Interactive Games and Activities ready for you to experience.

International Confex 2019


International Confex is jam packed full of great content, key speakers, networking opportunities, event suppliers and venues exhibiting their services. The show did face some real challenges in 2018 as it coincided with one of the most logistically challenging weather events of the year, the ‘Beast from the East’. The show did see some dedicated and determined event professionals battle through the snowy conditions to attend the show, it just shows how resilient the events industry is. This year we are hopeful that the weather conditions will be considerably better, making it easier for visitors to attend this show stopping Exhibition.


We are very excited to meet clients, create new relationships and showcase a handful of our Interactive Activities and Games. We hire a wide range of Activities and Games including Reaction Games, Interactive Games, LED and UV Games (Pool, Air Hockey, Foosball etc.), Inflatables and even a Climbing Wall. Although we would absolutely love to bring along every activity in our hire range there just isn’t enough space, so we hand-picked a few for visitors to experience at the Exhibition.

Step inside the Ballnado and prepare for the ball collecting fun to begin. When you are ready the experience will begin, the fan will start and you will feel the air rush around you, the balls will begin to float and you can start collecting. How many balls can you collect in the allotted time and can you get your name on the scoreboard?

The Ballnado is perfect for Brand Activations, Exhibitions, Corporate Events, Trade Stands, Awards, Parties and more.
