Why MES2020?

“Sport and live events such as festivals stir something deep inside of us and ignite the best of the human condition: an emotional release, the heightening of the spirit and a positive tribalism – an important counter to the hum drum of work, and a tonic for our mental health. The pandemic offers a rare opportunity to bring these two, traditionally very separate worlds, together - to debate the transition to a new normal; to speak with one voice and to use the power of connectivity and collaboration to help the UK events industry get back on its feet”
