In the UK, you can list four codes on your return to Companies House. By using more than one, you can retain any existing key sector category such as manufacturing or transport but use the additional codes to flag your connection to the Live Events sector.
The idea is to get all companies involved in ALL aspects of the events industry to use these codes – to help create data and visibility and to demonstrate how financially significant the industry is.
We are aware that the descriptions that go with these codes may not be totally accurate to many of your businesses and we are campaigning to get the descriptions made ‘wider’. In the meantime, we believe they will help achieve our aim of improving data and visibility.
We urge all venues, agencies, suppliers of conferences, meetings and exhibitions; anyone involved in live or recorded conferences, events, exhibitions etc to do this.
