MPs meet key event industry figures

Key people from Britain’s event industry met with members of parliament at a private dinner on 2 February. Part of the Britain for Events campaign, the dinner was co-chaired by Nick de Bois MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Events, and Michael Hirst, Chair of the Business Visits & Events Partnership. The objective of the dinner was to create closer partnership between government and industry in order to increase the international competitiveness of the UK event industry – upon which, of course, the buoyancy of the promotional merchandise industry depends.

In all, 25 industry representatives were invited to the dinner and discussion, along with 5 MPs and also Lady Cobham (of VisitEngland) and Lord Triesman from the upper house. Key names invited from the events sector included Fay Sharpe of Zibrant, Leigh Jagger of Banks Sadler, Kevin Murphy of ExCeL London, Jonny Sullens of Confex Group, Ben Goedegebuure of SECC and Jane Longhurst of the Meetings Industry Association.

Said Michael Hirst, speaking before the event, “Britain for Events gives us the perfect opportunity to provide a coherent voice to local and national government. In Nick we’re fortunate to have an MP that both understands the industry and is willing to listen to senior personalities about the key measures the government could take to ensure the industry’s growth.”
