We want to encourage this and help educate and connect brands with these new businesses and accelerate the recovery of the industry.’’

Lex Butler added: “We are creating the event industries go-to site for all things virtual and hybrid. Where buyers not only get to find their ideal supplier, but also have access to latest information and experts on hand to help navigate this new digital event landscape.”

The platform will be officially launched in November, however suppliers and event planners will be able to register their interest over the coming weeks. Suppliers who sign up pre-launch will have site fees waived for the first two months.
