Meeting with Holly Lynch - Shadow minister for security and Labour MP for Halifax

Regular meetings with Government Ministers, Members of the Shadow Cabinet and back bench MPs is a significant part of our ongoing public affairs work.

In addition to the engagement with the Home Office around Martyn’s Law, the EIA recently met with Holly Lynch MP, the Shadow Minister for Security and Labour MP for Halifax, to discuss the impact of Protect Duty Legislation recently published by the Government.

Further meetings to discuss the implementation of the legislation will be held in the coming months.

  • The events industry is only as good as the sum of its parts – the EIA represents all parts of our amazing industry. We are members because together we are so much stronger and are therefore so much better placed to deal with both our challenges and the massive opportunities that lie ahead.

  • The EIA serves as the quintessential industry forum and working group representing the cornerstones critical to all events; the organiser, the venue and the supply chain providing goods and services to the sector. Whilst it’s always been a valuable alliance for the industry, in these times of post-pandemic economic uncertainty and geo-political challenges, the ability for the industry to convene, confer and communicate as a unified sector is imperative as we seek to grow and have an even greater impact on the UK’s social and economic landscape.

  • The EIA is a great forum for collaboration between three of the major UK business events associations. It’s so important as an industry that we speak with one voice, that we collaborate on the biggest issues that we face and that we build mutual understanding and respect. The EIA provides the opportunity to do all of these things and is a made more powerful by all of our contributions.
