De Bois, MP for Enfield North, will lay out where government and the industry need to work together to increase the UK’s competitiveness in attracting large scale events going into 2012.

"This is a vitally important campaign in promoting the UK events industry," said de Bois. "This is an industry that represents a huge opportunity for growth within the economy and to increase our competitiveness internationally."
 
The event is expected to attract industry leaders and MPs on the APPG for Events, as well as members of the Culture, Media & Sports Select Committee and the Business & Enterprise Select Committee.

The campaign is supported by the Business Visits & Events Partnership (BVEP) and its member associations.

"As an industry we are right to seek a higher profile on the political agenda as we represent an area of huge growth for the economy," said chair of the BVEP Michael Hirst OBE.

"We’re delighted that Nick de Bois and his All Party Political Parliamentary Group are taking our case to the very highest levels of government and are so supportive of the Britain For Events campaign."
