UKickstart means what it says

Nick de Bois, Chair of the VisitEngland Advisory Board is to join the panel of UK events industry leaders taking part in the high-level discussion at UKickstart, the nationwide live and virtual gathering of event professionals taking place Tuesday week 8 September.

Formerly the Chair of the UK Government’s Events Industry Board (EIB), Nick will be joining Tourism Minister Nigel Huddleston MP, Tracy Halliwell MBE (Director of Tourism, Conventions and Major Events at London and Partners) and Simon Hughes (Chairman of BVEP) to discuss the safe return of the UK events industry as it works towards reopening.
Nick de Bois said: “UKickstart is an important catalyst in inspiring the UK events industry’s return to business as it works towards its October reopening date, uniting with one voice to safely restart this valuable industry and supporting the thousands of jobs that depend on it.”

The free entry UK-wide event will include discussions, broadcast live from County Hall London, on government guidance ahead of the business events industry’s restart, the ongoing impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the industry and what the future holds for the sector.
