We were thrilled to welcome Coventry South MP, Zarah Sultana to the Exhibit 3Sixty offices and workshops to discuss the situation facing the exhibitions industry and to understand more about the needs of many exhibition companies in the Coventry area that are in need of greater support in advance of the industry restart date of 01 October 2020.
We have been in communication with our local MPs aiming to gain more support for the exhibitions industry and we were delighted when Taiwo Owatemi MP voiced our concerns in the House of Parliament on 26 June and Zarah Sultana penned a letter to the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak MP. Yesterday we welcomed Zara Sultana MP to explain in person why the exhibitions industry is a major player in the regional economy, why it feels abandoned, and to ask for help securing government support.
The sector is able to deliver safe events using ‘controlled’ environments and can play a vital role in getting the UK economy moving again, we have a DCMS approved, risk assessment based approach, the All Secure Standard, all we need is help to get through to 01 October and we can reignite the UK economy. Exhibitions are where business happens, and we are ready to go as soon as the pilot events have been given the all clear.
