EVCOM, the association for the live event and visual communication industry, has announced it will run a Brexit strategy day in September to explore how industry concerns might be addressed.

New EVCOM chairman Andrew Smith said: “We have a very clear mandate from members to help them through the changes. But what Brexit is and how it will effect is far from clear.

“This year we have the most active and passionate board I have been a part of and we need to pool that energy and make plans that actual help each of our members’ businesses.”

The association’s new board, which was announced at its AGM on 11 July, will attend the meeting alongside representatives from Activate, Ashfield Meetings & Events, BlueHat, C2, First Event, Grass Roots, Heather Robinson, Inntel, MCHA Ltd, MCI, Penguin Events, Pure Events, RLC, Stage Struck, TTA, Wild Goose, Zibrant, MD Events, drp, Kabuki Productions, Jack Morton, TFI Group and Rapport.

EVCOM vice-chair Andrew Winterburn, said: “We recognise the value and power of bringing like-minded professionals together and are delighted so many agencies of such high calibre were keen to be involved.

“As an association we cannot produce effective solutions to the challenges faced within our industry without consultation, collaboration and contribution from such senior leaders as they are the voice of our ever growing membership.”
