The Council of Protocol Executives (COPE UK) is hosting a networking breakfast to discuss two burning industry topics: Britain’s events sector and its value and the challenges and opportunities for the next generation of planners.
Held Tuesday 15 May at London venue 1 Lombard Street, the first discussion will be led by MP Nick de Bois, chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for the Events Industry, while Justin Lance of London Metropolitan University (LMU) will conduct the latter.
De Bois, MP for Enfield North, will share APPG’s latest findings, as well as the successes enjoyed by Britain for Events - the annual campaign designed to raise awareness of the full economic, scientific and cultural benefits delivered by the meetings industry to the UK.
Justin Lance, who launched the specialist events-education programme at LMU, from which 3,000 students have graduated since 2003, will talk about today’s employment landscape and how corporate companies and universities can work more effectively together.
The event takes place from 8am to 10am. For more information visit http://www.regonline.co.uk/register/checkin.aspx?eventid=1095583&ResponseMemberId=nlO6lnAEZQ7sR7rT7tqpeg==&jID=290594
