The continued growth of the successful Shropshire and UK events industry will be in the spotlight at a free workshop at University Centre Shrewsbury (UCS).

People are invited to come along to the Events and Festivals Partnership Event at Guildhall in Shrewsbury on Thursday April 21.

Tim Brown, Deputy Head of Marketing, Tourism and Events Management at the University of Chester, will lead the event which is running from 5pm to 7pm.

Tim said: “The events industry is worth more than £40 billion to the UK economy and accounts for 35% of the UK’s visitor economy. The figures are showing annual growth and are an important part of the economic prosperity of the UK.

“The county of Shropshire supports many festivals and events in the food, music, horticultural and agricultural industries, to name but a few.

“Join us to learn how the events and festivals industry and University Centre Shrewsbury can forge links to aid in the ongoing development of the vibrant Shropshire and UK events sector.”

Tim has more than 10 years’ industry experience at director level in production and events management. He has delivered hundreds of events regionally, nationally and internationally, including high profile projects such as Boodles Nations Cup Tennis, annual tourism awards and the hospitality for the Paul McCartney Liverpool Sound Concert.
