The Meeting Professionals International (MPI) Foundation will release the UK Economic Impact Study (UKEIS) at 11.50am on 10 July, 2013, during The Meetings Show UK at Olympia, London.

The research was commissioned by the MPI Foundation to determine the economic value of the sector using internationally-recognised methods.

After the announcement, a forum of industry leaders will speak. The forum will focus on the key findings of the data and its meaning and use to the industry.

Panellists will include Paul Van Deventer, MPI president and chief executive officer, Jackie Mulligan of the International Centre for Research in Events, Tourism and Hospitality (ICRETH); Paul Kennedy, MBE, strategic business advisor for The Meetings Show UK and director and owner of Kennedy Integrated Solutions; and representatives from other key meeting industry organisations.

MPI UK and Ireland chapter president, Samme Allen said: "The results of this research will give us the information we need to lobby the government, make waves in boardrooms across the country and firmly place the meetings and events industry at the centre of the UK’s commercial landscape. This is without doubt the most important research ever to be undertaken within the sector."
