Industry Associations take part in the International Festival for Business

The International Festival for Business (IFB) in Liverpool will host several leading industry association meetings over its 50 days and, as part of a joint industry initiative, a networking reception at the Liver Building, sponsored by the Concerto Group, will be held on the 1st July 2014 to enable the representatives of key industry groups to meet together.

The Business Visits & Events Partnership (BVEP) will be hosting its Partner meeting and has created a comprehensive programme of site visits and briefings around its programme. These include visits to the Albert Dock, the Arena and Conference Centre, Camp and Furnace, the Liver Building and Anfield Stadium.  

Among the industry associations currently planning events during the Festival are the BVEP, ABPCO, ICCA, HBAA, AEV/ESSA and EVCOM.  

Also being hosted as part of the Festival are several visitor economy events with National Tourist Board, VisitEngland, British Destinations, The European Tour Operators Association, and the Tourism Society delivering a full programme of events.  

The IFB is the largest global concentration of business events during the year. Spanning seven weeks across June and July the Festival will attract business delegates and trade intermediaries from around the world with the aim of stimulating the UK economy through increased trade and investment.  

Michael Foreman, ABPCO Immediate Past Chair and Head of External Relations, who is leading the BVEP collaborative initiatives commented; “The International Festival for Business shows Britain at its most creative and innovative best. It’s only right for the Events Sector to play its part and be fully represented as the world of business gathers in Liverpool to work together to build better relationships”.
