The mood of optimism in the last four weeks has been pretty remarkable with increased levels of engagement and enthusiasm to support our inaugural event, the very first in the transport sector for over 18 months. This is clear evidence that business events are back for good. Spookily, we now have two ITT Hub events which will be face-to-face to delivery over the next six weeks. The whole team is working tirelessly to give the sector something new, innovative and interactive to get involved with. We are proud to be playing a role in getting the events industry back on its feet. Next week gives us an opportunity to support our customers with everything they need when they reconnect with the market this summer.”
