The Conference ExchangeTM is a group of dedicated professionals working to develop tools for meeting planners. Confex support staff work closely with our development, design, systems and audio-visual departments to deliver a set of products configured for each client.
What do we do?
Collecting, Organizing, Advancing and Delivering
We collect and manage data for hundreds of conferences annually.
We help associations advance the professional development of their members.
With our partners, we deliver custom digital and print publications.
Reliable & Sustainable
Sustainability is a core value.
Our goals are to sustain our clients, our jobs, and our communities for decades to come. Our energy efficient main office is in a 130 year old textile mill. We procure renewable energy to cover most of our electricity use, and we offset the balance of our greenhouse gas emissions. In our spare time we lobby for action on the environmental issues of greatest concern to our clients and ourselves. We are proud that the diverse communities of professionals we serve are all trying to make the world a better place in their own ways.
Reliability is key.
