UCAS CODE W990 The events industry is now the UK’s 16th largest employer, with more than 530,000 people directly employed. There are roughly 25,000 British-based businesses who provide venue hire, event production, exhibition stand design, technology solutions, food and drink, transport, and a raft of other goods and services, all related to the staging of live events. However, employers and organisers report a significant lack of skilled graduates able to work in the industry.
