Heappey said: “I’m delighted to welcome my colleagues onto the APPG and thank them for their enthusiasm and dedication in keeping the events industry on Parliament’s radar. We have a lot of work to do and some challenges to tackle. But my fellow APPG members and I are determined to make sure Parliamentarians keep events of all kinds front of mind in the coming year.”
