‘Without a package of support, the meetings and events sector will enter into free fall.’

That was the message from the Association of Event Organisers (AEO), Association of Event Venues (AEV) and Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA), responding to the government’s Covid-19 statement on Tuesday.

A joint statement from the AEO, AEV and ESSA said: “The statement made by the Government was a severe blow to our industry and all of those individuals and businesses that operate within it. Our sector has already been decimated by enforced closure during the past seven months, and extending restrictions, without a package of support, will see it enter free fall.
