EVCOM says the day will be suited to live event agents, film production companies, digital agencies, venues, destination or other industry service providers.

Specialist clinics will also run throughout the day, with experts on hand to give advice on employment low, regulatory issues, Tour Operator Margin Scheme (TOMS) VAT, insurance and corporate social responsibility.
