CI Events’ staff gathered for a conference last Friday (December 13) where they crafted and filmed their own ‘Wallace and Gromit’ style movies as part of a team building exercise. Event content specialists, KDM, were handed a brief  that instructed them to devise an activity that was had to be innovating and inspiring.

The report from the APPG inquiry was released on Monday (December 16) as it assessed the international competitiveness of the UK events industry. The APPG inquiry into events found that the industry is urging the government to cut visa and taxation restrictions and to create a special ‘events visa’ as opposed to further financial support.

Last night (December 19) Eventia sponsored a drinks reception at Park Lane’s London Hilton to say thank you for everyone’s hard work in 2013. Eventia also took this opportunity to highlight potential sponsorship opportunities for its events in the New Year.
