ABPCO Supporting Eventwell is a charitable social enterprise dedicated to the events industry and unlike other larger charitable organisations we do not rely on major donors or sponsors. We believe that as a vital resource for the industry we should remain open and accessible and not be steered, therefore, we rely solely on the revenue we generate from our website, new event series and generous donations that are made to fund the essential educational service we provide for all professionals in events.
