Britain For Events Launches Twitter Campaign

Published on 26/08/2014

Britain for Events, which promotes the UK events industry, has launched its new campaign with a Twitter hashtag. 

The organisation will be using #NEMO as a way to encourage events professionals to engage via social media and help raise awareness about its inaugural National Events Month in October. During the month, which is designed to promote the value of event tourism and its place within the British economy, event organisations are encouraged to run events across the country and promote British events on a global scale.

National Events Month will represent the very best of British events, says the organisation. It has high-profile support from the likes of Prime Minister David Cameron and Lord Sebastian Coe – who thanked Britain for Events for its work in promoting events in the UK during the highly successful 2012 Olympics. The month will be split into four weeks: Conference and Meetings; Exhibitions and Experiential; Outdoor, Festival and Sporting; and Corporate Hospitality and Incentive Travel.

Britain for Events is asking event organisers to get involved in the ‘host’ events, which will launch each of the four weeks. And now people can get involved through Twitter using the hashtag #NEMO. The campaign group is asking people to help promote its cause by adding the hashtag to industry relevant tweets.

Britain for Events is on Twitter (@Britain4Events) and currently has over 2,000 followers. It has launched a dedicated website for National Events Month, which can be found at http://www.nationaleventsmonth.co.uk
