The APPG is calling upon buyers and anyone with an interest in how the UK events industry develops to submit responses to the inquiry by Friday 3 May. The deadline for submissions was extended from 19 April due to lack of evidence from buyers and agencies.

Of the responses to date, the majority has come from associations and destinations.

Britain for Events, which is supporting the inquiry, has stated that it is happy with the quantity of submissions but is urging more buyers to tell the inquiry about their issues and challenges.

The inquiry, entitled: ‘To what extent is the UK events industry internationally competitive?’ has been set up to provide recommendations to government on the steps it can take to increase the UK’s share of global events business.

Anyone wishing to submit evidence should email appg@britainforevents.co.uk
