Eventia is heading up a campaign to minimise the negative impacts of proposed legislation changes to the Tour Operators' Margin Scheme (TOMS).
The announcement follows Government talks with the travel and tourism industries about the European Commission's plans to harmonise the application of TOMS between member states.
Changes are likely to take effect from 1 January 2010, and may affect companies supplying travel services to business customers.
Eventia believes ending the TOMS opt-out could have profound effects on the business model and competitiveness of agencies managing events in the UK.
The association is consulting with its members on the implications of the proposed changes.
Eventia's Regulation Committee chair Brian Kirsch said: "It is vital that event agencies and DMCs, in particular, provide us with solid factual information on how the proposed changes might impact their businesses in order to inform and strengthen our feedback to Government."
