Brilliant work. Growing sales. Award after award. What’s the story Jackanory? Part 3 : Episode 013

24 Jan, 2019

‘I cannot remember the last time the event industry press were represented in the national press.’

‘This is a real challenge – the fragmentation of trade bodies across the events industry landscape.’

‘Government aren’t really listening.’

‘A lack of barrier to entry for our industry is fantastic.’

‘I think the one issue we do have as industry is defining ourselves.’


In Part 3/3 we talk the wider industry – health and safety, poor Government engagement, a lack of influence and leadership from event press and trade bodies, and moonlighting at The Ministry of Sound.
