The Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) has extended its agreements with four UK exhibitions to provide discounted floor space to its members.The four events are the Event Production Show, International Confex, the Event and Exhibiting Show and Event UK. Each show has offered its own rates or incentives for ESSA members to take advantage of. “We are always seeking ways to help reduce the cost of doing business for our members and proving our value of the membership,” said ESSA director Chris Skeith. “The savings we have negotiated on these four shows is already a greater return than the investment in membership.”
As the UK has voted to leave the European Union with a 52 per cent majority result, EN has spoken to members of the exhibition and events industry, to gauge their initial reactions on the future of the UK and their businesses.
More than 8,000 visitors arrived at ExCeL London on 4-6 February for the fourth edition of 100% Optical. The show featured more than 175,000 frames, catwalk performances and a comprehensive education programme.
