Living proof for the Living Wage

Living Wage accredited businesses to present at engagement session, organised by M&IT and ABPCO

ABPCO association director Heather Lishman

An educational session is being held to demonstrate how the living wage can work in the events industry.

Co-hosted by the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) and M&IT, the engagement session will feature presentations from Living Wage accredited businesses, as well as a Q&A and a chance for networking.

It will be the second event to take place as part of M&IT and ABPCO's joint Living Wage for Live Events campaign, after a round table discussion held at Church House Conference Centre in October.

ABPCO association director Heather Lishman said: "Following on from the discussion we had in October, we realised there was some confusion in the market place as to what Living Wage accredited actually means, what the benefits are and how you can go about becoming accredited.

"We agreed to put on an education session that shares best practice with plenty of opportunity for discussion and some time for networking.

"We understand there are sceptics within the industry and that there will be challenges in introducing the Living Wage, and so we hope to show businesses where the living wage has tangible benefits."

The educational session will take place at KPMG headquarters at Canary Wharf on 26 February from 2-4pm.
