Prime Minister back’s #NEMO

SMP Fergus Ewing, Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism in Scotland
Prime Minister, David Cameron, has once again laid his support behind Britain for Events during National Events Month October. In a letter to the campaign Mr Cameron “… (wished it) every success for National Events Month,” and committed further support for the industry.

The Prime Minister also credited its “… significant contribution to the economy …” and advised that he was working with Department of Culture Media & Sport and UK Trade & investment to support the industry even further.

The Prime Minister joins an increasing list of high profile government representatives to support the consumer facing campaign. Early in National Events Month Kathleen Warden, Director of Conference Sales at the SECC, briefed Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg on the campaign during his party’s conference in Glasgow.

Week two of National Events Month saw SMP Fergus Ewing, Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism in Scotland, briefed on the campaign during the Scottish Tourism Alliance’s annual conference in Stirling. Meanwhile last week saw Edwina Hart, Minister for Finance and Local Government in Wales, support the campaign at the Association of Independent Festival Organisers Congress in Cardiff, and confirmation of Helen Grant’s, Tourism Minister for the UK, attendance at the #NEMO Celebration Event at the Museum of London.

“The sheer reach of the campaign this year, both through our extensive social campaign and our #NEMO, as well as the volume of events that have adopted our branding has attracted some really high profile support,” commented Alistair Turner, Campaign Director of Britain for Events. “The comments from the Prime Minster are welcome, and we continue to work with his office as well as other government departments to increase the international competitiveness and profile of this great industry.”
