Simon Hughes

Immediate Past Chair, BVEP

Simon is currently the immediate past chair of BVEP having served as Chair for the last 2 years. He has been involved with the partnership for over 12 years. He also served as an independent member of the Event Industry Board and a founding director of the Events Apprenticeship Programme Board.

He helped found One Industry One Voice last year in response to the urgent need to bring the whole of the UK event industry together to tackle the challenges of Covid 19. With the launch of The Power of Events he hopes to build on the co-operation and collaboration that supported the UK events industry during the pandemic with a digital shop window that showcases the power of events across the 4 Nations of the UK.
