Hughes will continue to lead on BVEP’s coordination of issues arising from Britain’s eventual exit from the EU, while Skeith will continue as BVEP treasurer.
Welcoming the re-appointments, BVEP Chair Michael Hirst OBE said: "I’m delighted to welcome Chris and Simon back for another two years. Both have played a major role in helping the BVEP to develop policies that promote the best interests of the events industry. As the government continues to grow its appreciation of the role events play in showcasing Britain and securing international trade opportunities, their continued contribution to the work of the partnership will be invaluable."
Speaking about the UK’s decision to leave the EU, Hughes added: "Brexit means that it is now even more important than ever to make sure the industry’s voice is heard. BVEP has a pivotal role to play in continuing to focus on the issues and opportunities that the people who work in our sector can bring to promoting UK plc. I’m very pleased to be part of this small but dynamic and influential team."
