One Industry One Voice

We deliver some of the most important experiences of your lives, to share with your family, your friends, your colleagues, your community. Sharing experiences supports our wellbeing, society and our economy.

What we do touches millions of lives a day – in a positive way – and we all need that now more than ever.

The One Industry One Voice initiative aims to create a clear mandate of cross representation across all the core sectors of the £84bn events industry. This then enables the BVEP (Business Visits and Events Partnership) to activate it on behalf of all the main industry associations and sectors with the #WeCreateExperiences campaign.

Its main mission is to raise awareness among the general public and national media, through inspirational and positive messaging, of the true value of the industry to daily life, the wider economy.

The campaign also will focus on reassuring both the public and corporations that the UK events industry is ready to deliver safe events in readiness for 1st October, when larger events will be able to run again in England.

Life is built on experiences
Some you make, some are created for you.
This is what we do as the live events industry
