In a keynote speech, EIA chief executive Trevor Foley said: “We feel the size and scope of our industry has not been fully appreciated by government… A key aim of the EIA is to rectify that by working more closely with government.”

He asked for collaboration to resolve areas of conflicting policy affecting the sector, for top-level support in bids to run peripatetic events at UK venues, for ministers to open key exhibitions and events, and for a chance to partner government in the run-up to the Olympics.
