About Us

Who we are

Eventia is recognised as the official trade body of the events and live marketing industry providing leadership and representation on important issues to Government, regulators and the corporate community. The association was created in January 2006, following the merger between two complementary trade associations: the Corporate Events Association (CEA) and the Incentive Travel & Meetings Association (ITMA). The British Association of Conference Destinations (BACD) was subsumed into Eventia from January 2009.

Eventia promotes the highest standards of professionalism and best practice in the industry. All members of the association adhere to a Code of Practice which governs the spirit and method of all commercial activities and conduct of business.

  • Provide a platform for development of standards and best practice throughout the industry
  • Lobby government for change in legislations affecting our industry
  • Act as a centre of excellence in knowledge, education & training seminars
