Events Supply Chain Business Support Impacts - follow-up survey

DEADLINE - 11th June. In early April, industry associations joined together to research and present evidence on the impact of Coronavirus and the effectiveness of Government support on the Events Supply Sector. The survey we carried out together had over 1400 responses, the report it produced was delivered to treasury and along with other activity from across the wider creative sector, we’re certain it led to further support measures being announced soon after.

It is now time to ask once more for your input, taking into account measures introduced since the last report and the more recently announced tapering and removal of support packages. Please help us by completing the survey (https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/JWLCSWN). We have until Thursday 11th June to collect responses and start building our report.
