The Business of Events Senior Leadership Forum welcomed more than 100 senior leaders from the events industry, as well as government officials to discuss current issues and trends in the events industry.

The forum took place on Friday 26 October, with James Heappey MP, chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for the Events Industry, getting things under way on Thursday at the Business of Events debate in Portcullis House.

Simon Hughes, vice chair of the Business Visits and Events Partnership (BVEP), who moderated the event said: "The level of support that we have received from across the entire events industry this year shows how important these events are.

"It is more crucial than ever that we continue to have a highly engaged sector that can work together to meet the challenges we currently face and grown our industry for the benefit of all."
