Michael Watton, Venue Director at Farnborough International comments on VisitBritain Event Support Programme

 Michael Watton, Venue Director at Farnborough International
“We welcome the announcement this week from VisitBritain on the launch of the Event Support Programme, designed to help attract more global business events to the UK.
"It is a great time for the UK events sector to be targeting further international business - with the pound’s current weakness against the euro and dollar, we have real strength in our ‘value’ message.

"Furthermore, with the increased investment in infrastructure we are seeing across the country with the planned airport expansions in the South East, the improvements in high speed rail links, and major venues developments including our own £30m expansion to our existing event and venue business, it really is a great time for stimulating business outside of London. Britain is definitely open for business.”
