About us

Founded in 2011, the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Events (APPG) is a cross party group made up of members from both Houses of Parliament, and acts as the event industry’s voice in Westminster. The APPG for Events provides a forum for the highly diverse and valuable UK events industry in Parliament, engaging with representatives from across the political spectrum.

The APPG plays a key role in keeping the events industry high on the Parliamentary agenda. Its formal purpose is:

  • To represent the UK events industry in Parliament
  • To highlight the value of the industry to the UK economy and society;
  • To engage with politicians and industry representatives
  • To ensure that the UK remains a competitive and leading destination for major international events
