There are over 1.3 million business events held in the UK annually. Just under £40 billion was spent by those attending these events, and the segment generates more than £20.6 billion in gross value added (GVA) and £58.4 billion in gross domestic product (GDP). The direct spending associated with UK meeting organisers is £24.7 billion. Of this spend, £6.4 billion is funded by registration fees paid by delegates and attendees.
Yet these numbers don't cover small-scale events and conferences frequently organized by media and PR professionals, creative agencies, fashion businesses, technology startups, co-working spaces and more. Thus, the above figures are likely to be much, much higher.
It's safe to safe, then, that the event planning space in the UK is booming. It's booming so much, in fact, that London has been named the 1 EMEA city in terms of meetings and events activities.
But while the figures may be reassuring, event planners continue to face a barrage of problems. A lack of disruptive technological innovation in the industry is causing plenty of headaches for event planners, large and small.

'I ordered two high-velocity air fans for an exhibition opening at the gallery I work for. I was able to extend the rental period on the fans quickly and simply and everything went smoothly. Great and efficient service!'.
