The Main Stage

We have an industry worth £46 billion, it is the third biggest in the UK so surely we are integral to the UK economy? Despite this, we are really not represented at a government level and we want this to change. There is a huge amount of money in the exhibitions sector for inward investment, shouldn’t we be competing on a global level for festivals and outdoors shows? We have some of the best producers and promoters in the world – shouldn’t we be more ambitious and proactive about developing our industry?
