james heappyThe Meetings Industry Association is to host a roundtable debate in October which will be attended by James Heappey MP as part of our campaign to champion a better way for business.
Following his appearance at our highly successful EU debate in May, the MP for Wells and chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Events will be joined on the high-calibre panel by a selection of industry stalwarts to encourage greater incentives for international corporations to hold meetings and conferences in the UK and wider initiatives to ensure freedom of movement and trade within the European Union remains.
Jane Longhurst, chief executive of the mia, says: “We’re delighted that James Heappey will be once again joining the latest high-profile mia event. We know from our recent poll that the sector has been feeling the immediate impact of the UK’s decision to leave the European Union. This is just one of our initiatives to help ensure all members are best equipped to maximise business opportunities and minimise the potential impact of BREXIT going forward.”

We look forward to sharing the results of the discussions with you. But, if there are any particular questions or issues that you would like to put forward for the panel to discuss, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Call a member of the team on 0345 230 5508 or email fatima@mia-uk.org
