Professionalisation Update September 2017

Professionalisation activity

Event organisations are being requested to provide information about their current activities that support the events profession. This is in response to the decision by the BVEP meeting in June 2017 to take a more socially constructed model of progressing the professionalisation of the sector (download report at the end of this article). This means that recognition would be made of existing structures and practices rather than imposing a top-down approach and potentially ‘reinventing the wheel’. This decision was made after more than 20 people were interviewed on their views of professionalisation in events (kindly supported by the Centre for Events, Leisure, Society & Culture, Bournemouth University http://ow.ly/z7yK30f0d7x). There is a very positive appetite for the event sector to galvanise around the more traditional characteristics of an accepted profession.

BVEP comments on General Election result

The priority for any new government will be protecting and growing the economy and business. The Events sector has a major role to play in this. Whoever is in power, there's no reason why the good work of the Events Industry Board should not continue by advising government on the ways in which the value and volume of events held in Britain can be expanded.

Industry representation through the BVEP will continue to focus on post Brexit growth opportunities. We hope James Heappey will resume his role in the All Party Parliamentary Group for Events and Nick de Bois will continue to lead the Events Industry Board.
