The finance sector remains under pressure to show internal savings in their events, as revealed in C&IT's annual Brand Book, published this month, which features 100 brands and their event strategies.
Des McLaughlin, divisional director, Grass Roots Meetings & Events, said that banks are "being tasked with saving hundreds of millions" and, as a result, are looking to outsource event services and take a global approach to cost-saving. "The FCA guidelines are having an impact and they will continue to do so," added Mclaughlin.
However, major rebrands and the need for training events in the financial services sector is driving the volume of events.
