ISES to host E20 Summit with Britain for Events

The
International Special Events Society (ISES)
, with the support of Britain
for Events, will host the E20 Summit next month. The meeting will
address the export of British creativity and events around the world.

The
summit will take place on 29 May at The Athenaeum in Mayfair and has
been called to discuss key issues for the events industry in 2013 with a
focus on:

  • Providing a platform for an exchange of ideas and information on British creativity and event exports
  • Exploring the global reach of the export network
  • Exploring the nature of creative and production resources that are demanded by importers
  • Engaging with events industry exporters and government to provide the basis for a future exporters agenda.

The
last E20 Summit took place in 2009 at the Natural History Museum and
featured 20 of the most senior decision makers in the events industry.
ISES UK Chapter has led the return of the format with a focus on
‘Exporting British Creativity in Events’.

ISES UK and Britain
for Events will be inviting industry supporters and experts to
participate in the summit. Government officials, event exporters and
industry heavyweights will contribute ideas and experiences on event
exportation.

The summit will also look at a closer partnership between the industry and government to achieve an integrated export vision.

“Following
the success of a mega-event year in 2012, industry confidence is high,”
said Philip Atkins, President of ISES UK Chapter. “So is the global
awareness of British creativity in events. This opportunity cannot be
missed. Our industry must seize the moment. ISES UK wants to lead on
this and position our industry as a ‘must have’ import around the
globe.”
