MPI endorses COVID-19 financial aid petition

MPI UK and Ireland chapter is encouraging all of its members and connections across the industry to support a petition to the UK government.

The petition asks for further economic assistance from the UK government during the COVID-19 crisis. It currently sits at almost 150,000 signatures, having reached the 100,000 mark which would put it forward for debate in Parliament.

It is titled ‘Government to offer economic assistance to the events industry during COVID-19’.

After the petition reached 100,000 signatures, the Petitions Committee asked those who signed it to submit some key questions to the government regarding Covid-19 and its impact. 

MPI commented: “With your help and contribution we are hopeful that the government will take note and offer help in these difficult times.”

The petition can be found here.
