Events Industry Research28 Jan 2015
The AEV are very excited to be championing and funding a new programme of research to provide a detailed picture of the size and scale of the events industry in the UK. This will be a 3 year programme which in years 2 and 3 will provide trends, benchmarking and quality metrics for the industry together with future projections for the events sector.
We are working with specialist consultants in the conference, business and events fields namely Tony Rogers and Richard Smith. Both have many years of experience undertaking research, primarily in this sector.
In December the AEV, AEO and ESSA boards all individually gave their full support and agreement to participate in the research project. To this end, we have now been in touch with all AEV and AEO members to nominate a single point of contact for our research team to liaise with. Data will be collected via an online system which will go live next month. Please do get in touch if you have any questions about the research.
