Recent events have seen focus firmly placed on racial diversity and inclusion. This has prompted senior leaders within the events industry to step back and review their practices.
The summit will bring together senior leaders from across the events industry to discuss the initiatives being
undertaken, and the actions needed to foster a more diverse and inclusive business culture where everyone

The summit will be a candid and proactive discussion around race, covering issues such as making racial

black professionals within events.
