The Business Visits and Events Partnership (BVEP) has announced the launch of a new searchable database of research for the meetings and events industry.
Compiled by industry experts Tony Rogers of Tony Rogers Conference & Event Services and Glenn Bowdin of Leeds Beckett University on behalf of the BVEP’s research group, the directory is available on the BVEP website.
John Gallery, chair of BVEP’s research group said: “This is the first phase of an on-going project that began with the identification of research that is currently available and a gap analysis of work that is still needed to inform the sector. Some of the identified research gaps have already been acted upon by VisitBritain and we will be seeking partners for other gaps.”
The new directory is easily searched alphabetically, by category, search term or keyword, and new research and articles can be uploaded so that the resource will remain up to date in the future.
BVEP chair, Michael Hirst, added:“Good quality research is so important and as BVEP is the industry’s umbrella organisation, this new resource should be invaluable to all of our partners and anyone involved in the events industry seeking information about the sector.”
