IN PERSON: Alan Rogers - chief executive, Red Carpet Group

Alan Rogers is annoyed. He cannot believe the outcome of the recent case surrounding REM guitarist Peter Buck - who was acquitted of air rage on a BA flight from Seattle - and in particular the lack of reaction from the meetings industry. "It's amazing no-one's making a bigger fuss about it, says Rogers. "The guy totally compromised security on that flight, and not only is he let off, but BA hasn't come out to say it will refuse to fly him in future. What kind of a message does that send out?"
