UK EVENTS SUMMIT 2021

COMMUNICATE. COLLABORATE. COORDINATE.

Major Events International (MEI) is delighted to announce the 4th UK Events Summit, in partnership with the Women’s Sport's Alliance Global Summit and in association with Cube International.


At a time of significant challenge and continued uncertainty for the broad and diverse UK Events ecosystem this event is designed to provide you with guidance, inspiration and to facilitate new partnerships leading to greater safety and security, efficiencies and thereby increased profitability. UK event organisers, ranging from sport to festivals; outdoor shows to local authority event organisers are invited to join us as our guests, at no cost. The Summit brings together an impressive line up of speakers and panellists who will serve to facilitate the sharing of best practice and, at long-last, the chance to meet physically and renew or build new relationships. As well as helping the industry get back onto its feet, we aim to amplify the diversity and inclusion agenda, as well as encouraging the convergence of sport and music to drive future revenues and inward investment.


The Summit will be capped with the WSA Awards Celebration which will celebrate the achievements of inspirational sportswomen and men who champion women's sport.
