The Business of Events (TBOE) has released its 2023 Prospectus and confirmed that Rachael Boraston (pictured) has joined in a freelance capacity as Head of Partnerships.
TBOE is a not-for-profit, independent Think Tank for the UK events sector; an industry that has enormous economic potential.

TBOE is able to deliver its programme of activities thanks to the generous support of strategic and commercial partners, which include leading business events destinations, major venues, convention centres, stadiums, trade shows and exhibition companies, brand agencies and technology providers alongside Government departments and other public sector organisations.
