Statement from the Business Visits & Events Partnership

Following the announcement from the Prime Minister yesterday, the Business Visits & Events Partnership (BVEP) has today issued the following statement:

“While we welcome the news announced by the Prime Minister yesterday that all legal restrictions are due to be lifted on July 19th, we continue to engage with Government at all levels to push for additional targeted support, the introduction of more measures to aid a long term sustained recovery and, most importantly, a binding assurance that the industry will not face further restrictions on their ability to operate, both on a local and national level, as a result of a further rise in infection levels. On this vital point, we have today written to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, asking for his department to work collaboratively with the sector, to ensure events of all kinds, and the industry as a whole, can operate safely and fully into the future.”

Simon Hughes, Chair, Business Visits & Events Partnership
