The CHS Group is putting its support behind a number of initiatives that are raising the profile of the now £70bn UK events industry. The announcement follows a number of high-profile campaigns that have been launched in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and the need for the industry to push its case in front of government and business
One of the most recent announcements has been the launch of The Business Visits & Events Partnership’s (BVEP), The UK Events Report, which ‘provides an in-depth examination into the … industry’. The report underlines the size of the UK events market, providing jobs for 700,000 people, as well as its contribution to the government’s Industrial Strategy.
“We’re 100% behind any campaigns that shows the collective muscle of the events industry, but also its massive effect on business,” commented Emma Cartmell, Founder & CEO of CHS Group. “As a business that provides events that are of service to the events community, we see first-hand the injections of momentum, sales and business activity that happen when people meet face to face.”
Emma continues, “When this is replicated across other industries, we just know there is a massive impact of what we, and other organisers like us, do. Through these initiatives, we can try and come back when it is safe to do so, and in a way that will see us kick-start businesses across industry.”
