BEIC - Baltic Event Industry Club has been launched
In May 2017, Tallinn hosted the first forum dedicated to the event organization industry – Baltic For Events Forum.
The forum united more than 200 participants, 138 professional companies in the event market, and in total, the forum was attended by participants from 12 countries.
The result of this event was more than 30 contracts concluded between delegates, a lot of new ideas and acquaintances, and one of the most important decisions was made - the creation of the Baltic event-association.
It sets itself certain tasks, among which: promotion of the entire Baltic region as a venue for various events, priority participation of members of the association and international B2B events as speakers and delegates, creating a unified database of contacts for event market professionals.
Members of the association are the largest event agencies of the Baltic region and industry professionals providing services for event organizers.
The association is built on the principle of "head offices". In each country of the Baltic region, a leader is supposed to provide informational support to potential event customers.
"This is a big step for all of us. This is a new stage in the development of our business and the Baltic Sea region in the European market. Many understand that the event industry in the Baltic Sea region has made significant progress. Contractors and event industry professionals from the Baltic and Scandinavian countries work for the largest event customers in Europe, event agencies receive recognition at the top European awards, and have a portfolio of cases of up to 500,000 euros. The number of events in the Baltic region is increasing by 3% every year.
The BEIC has set itself a number of goals, among which we especially single out one - the role and advantages of the Baltic Sea Region in the European event market", - said Maria Kirillova, General manager at BEIC
