EventsAreGREAT_Reimagined

One of our priorities is to grow the UK’s valuable business events sector by promoting its world-class destinations and venues, and driving more targeted international business events into the UK. We work in partnership with the nations and regions of the UK to add value to their work in this sector.

The Business Events Growth Programme forms part of Government’s commitment to build, develop and boost the business events sector, supporting the attraction and the growth of international business events which align with the Government's priority industry sectors.
