This follows the news that EVCOM has cut its annual summer conference, formerly 'Summer Eventia', to a one-day programme, which will now take place in September.

The new EVCOM board was elected at the annual general meetings of Eventia and IVCA at the QEII Conference Centre in London last week. The meeting was the last time the two trade bodies would meet as separate entities. It will now move forward as EVCOM.

The meeting was preceded by a Senior Advisory Council, which brought together industry professionals to discuss key issues affecting the industry, including globalisation; impact, effectiveness and metrics around ROI and the economic landscape and elections.
