The Business Visits and Events Partnership (BVEP), the umbrella body and advocacy group for the UK’s £70 billion events industry, has launched its BVEP Partner Events Reopening Survey, which will provide an insight into how organisations and venues across England are preparing ahead of the industry’s go date.

The short survey, comprised of six questions, will provide the BVEP with an insight into the thoughts of its partners as well as what extra support the industry requires from the Government ahead of its proposed reopening date of October 1, 2020.

Simon Hughes, chair of BVEP, said: “We are encouraging our industry colleagues to respond to this survey as openly and as honestly as possible. We want to understand what else venues and businesses from us and government ahead of October 1 so it can thrive once again after a few very difficult months.”

The survey can be accessed here. The closing date for responses is August 4.
