The Business of Events

The Business of Events

The Business of Events (TBOE) is an independent Think Tank for the events sector; an industry that has enormous economic potential.

Our primary role is to raise the importance and profile of business events as an economic, policy, and community driver and to maximise the opportunities achieved by having a strong business events sector. 

We achieve this through a combination of Policy, Advocacy, Content and Engagement, bringing together senior leaders from across the business events sector to discuss policy ideas and initiatives and to connect with government, policy makers and influencers, public sector organisations and politicians.

Established in 2018 by brand communications agency davies tanner, our shared vision is supported by several strategic partners, including the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Events, VisitBritain and UKEVENTS (formerly the Business Visits & Events Partnership), along with many of the world’s leading business events destinations, venues and trade associations.
