Share on LinkedIn Email Print View
David Cameron As National Events Month October (#NEMO) moves into its final week Prime Minister David Cameron once again gave his backing to the campaign in a letter, wishing it “every success”.

The Prime Minister credited the industry’s “significant contribution to the economy” and advised that he was working with the Department of Culture Media & Sport and UK Trade & investment to support the industry even further.
At the start of National Events Month Kathleen Warden, Director of Conference Sales at the SECC, had briefed Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg on the campaign during his party’s conference in Glasgow.
Week two of National Events Month then saw SMP Fergus Ewing, Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism in Scotland, briefed on the campaign during the Scottish Tourism Alliance’s annual conference in Stirling, while, during week three, Edwina Hart, Minister for Finance and Local Government in Wales, gave her support to the campaign at the Association of Independent Festival Organisers Congress in Cardiff.

UK Tourism Minister Helen Grant is down to attend the #NEMO Celebration Event finale at the Museum of London, 27 October.
“The sheer reach of the campaign this year, both through our extensive social campaign and our #NEMO, as well as the volume of events that have adopted our branding has attracted some really high profile support,” said Alistair Turner, Campaign Director of Britain for Events.

“The comments from the Prime Minster are welcome, and we continue to work with his office as well as other government departments to increase the international competitiveness and profile of this great industry.”
