The Business of Events: UK Policy Forum

QE2 Conference Centre

The Business of Events: UK Policy Forum, will take place in London on 02 November 2022 at the QEII Centre, Westminster.

This landmark one day event, held in partnership with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport and VisitBritain, will bring together leading destinations and venues from across the UK to connect with senior event and exhibition organisers, trade and membership bodies.

The Forum will facilitate discussions with representatives from government departments, public sector organisations and Members of Parliament, to discuss how to move the UK business events sector from a purely visitor economy model, to a more policy led model that has a focus on using business events to achieve national, regional and local policy objectives.

The event will conclude with a drink’s reception.
