The Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) has confirmed that its annual general meeting will take place on 27 April, on board the Jewel of London, the same vessel that hosted ESSA’s first AGM some 10 years ago.
There will be a special guest address from Nick de Bois, current chairman of the UK Government’s Events Industry Board. Attendees will be treated to a food and drinks reception, whilst taking in the unique views of London from their vantage point on the river.
Andrew Harrison, ESSA director said: “Returning to ‘The Jewel of London’, after 10 years of navigating the events industry on behalf of our members, seemed doubly appropriate. I wanted to underline just how far we have come in the last decade, and I have no doubt there will be many people attending this year who were also there at the first AGM, and I hope they’ll be able to share their memories and reminiscences too.”
