Events industry backs airport expansion campaign – HBAA

Published on : Wednesday, November 27, 2013

HBAASome of the UK’s most prominent event professionals have thrown their weight behind airport expansion campaigners.


The Business Visits & Events Partnership (BVEP) has lent its support to the Let Britain Fly campaign after members of the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) joined organisations including the British Chambers of Commerce, British Hospitality Association, ExCeL London and the Institute of Directors in signing the lobby group’s founding statement.


Let Britain Fly intends to lobby government to improve airport capacity and modernise existing infrastructure in London and the south east.


“The capacity of our airports is one of a series of barriers to growth in the UK winning more events business, so we’re delighted to put our support behind this campaign,” said Simon Hughes, BVEP vice chair. “Alongside Air Passenger Duty, the limitations of our airports are reducing the competitiveness of the UK in being an attractive location in which to hold international events and one where they would choose to return as leisure travellers.”
