Whether it is home-grown events or major one-off internationals, events in general have the capacity to showcase our people and places on a global stage.
Events can drive visitor numbers, generate increased spend and also provide platforms for the visitor to interact with the local culture, local people and explore our scenic landscapes and cities.
UK Mega Event Policy Framework
In 2017, the UK Mega Event Policy Framework was developed in partnership by the country’s lead major event organisations, and will seek to ensure that the world’s biggest events continue to be regularly hosted in the UK. Objectives set out within the framework will help identify long-term mega event hosting targets across the UK, reduce the likelihood of bidding and delivery conflict and enhance collaboration and co-hosting opportunities in an increasingly devolved UK landscape.
