“Snap General Election will not disrupt event industry agenda”

Simon Hughes, Vice Chair of the Business Visits and Events Partnership (BVEP) said: “Regardless of the Election, the agenda for the events industry will be the same as we set out in our recent policy document “Opportunities for Global Growth in Britain’s Events Sector”. But we will be watching carefully the commitment each party makes during the Election on the opportunities that will benefit the events industry – namely trade, talent and tariffs – which remain critical to future success. Assurances that the work of the Events Industry Board and VisitBritain will both continue and be reinforced will be welcome too”
