Online PR News – 08-November-2012 – 11/6/2012, Aston, Birmingham – Aston, Birmingham The chairman of Eventia Simon Hughes has congratulated the new MP for Tourism and Sport, Hugh Robertson, on his new role and to ask him who will engage with to ensure that we maximise the Olympic halo effect', a concern with all those associated with UK tourism and events.

Hughes said 'we know that many of our members have been working tirelessly over the last few years to help deliver the success that everyone has been applauding this week and we are focused on ensuring that the economic growth potential of the world class workforce we represent benefits from the massive boost in confidence that has been created over the summer."

Many in the industry believe that we should have very clear lessons learnt from the success of the summer Olympics in London, and that by having this focus we will be able to deliver world class results in future events.

Chris Perkins runs Cue Media in Birmingham and London, helping a range of businesses in the UK, Europe and beyond to design and stage eventsfrom small meetings to major corporate events and everything in between at some of London's major corporate event venues. He says:

"The Olympics did a great job of showcasing the creative talents and technical depth of the UK events industry. The opening and closing ceremonies demonstrated that we are more than capable of delivering. It will be interesting to see if the new Tourism and Sports Minister addresses the concerns that the industry has moving forward and outlines, in public, any policies or goals that he abides to. As a typical corporate events company, the future of our industry is probably more in the hands of businesssecretary Vince Cable, as I'm sure it is for many others like us."
