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.

Manchester Arena

On behalf of the entire events community in Britain, the partners of the BVEP extend their deepest sympathy to all those affected by last night's terrible incident at the Manchester Arena, and offer their colleagues in the Events Industry in Manchester our fullest support as they deal with the aftermath of this very sad evening.

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”.
