Olympia London MD, Nigel Nathan, to co-present at International Confex

22 Feb 2017

One year into a comprehensive, collaborative research programme, Olympia London has decided that the time is right to share their journey with the industry.

Managing Director, Nigel Nathan and Customer Experience Research Director at Kantar TNS, Duncan Stewart, will be taking to the Keynote Theatre’s mainstage at 11:40 on Thursday 2nd March. Here they will detail the role research has played in Olympia London’s world-class journey, and the importance of clear, actionable, sharable insight within the event industry.
