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. Our work aligns with the focus of the Events Industry Board that promotes the events sector within 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 the business events sector, supporting the attraction of international business events which align with the Government's priority industry sectors. Applications for financial support for the 2018/19 financial year are now closed. Applications for Government advocacy are welcome on an ongoing basis.
