The Business Visits & Events Partnership (BVEP) has extended the deadline for its industry survey as part of initial reviews being carried out by the Department of Media, Culture and Sport (DCMS).

The BVEP will continue surveying the entire industry, at the request of Government, and reporting the results with one clear voice in representation of the industry’s interests.

The ‘BVEP Events Industry Referendum Impact Survey’ includes questions surrounding primary concerns and key priorities for event businesses, what EU legislation they would like to see kept and what they would like to see scrapped plus also the chance to comment on any further challenges and opportunities they have noted since the referendum.

Following the results of the survey, representatives of the BVEP and the newly formed UK Events Industry Board, will meet with ministers and officials following the summer recess to discuss the initial findings and begin to formulate an approach to ensure that the views of the events industry are fully taken into account during any Brexit negotiations.

Simon Hughes, Vice Chair of the BVEP comments; “The new Government has asked for our help in determining the views of the industry and we want to make sure that those opinions are gathered as widely as possible. Therefore, it is imperative that the industry makes their voices heard and contributes to this vitally important piece of research before the deadline of 16th September.”

The BVEP Events Industry Referendum Impact Survey is live until 16th September.
