Business visits & events

One of our priorities is to grow the UK’s valuable business visits and 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 recently formed 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.
