The Association of Global Event Suppliers (AGES) has launched its Industry Partner Program with a partnership with EY (Ernst & Young). Representing the category “Assurance, Tax and Legal”, EY will use its expertise to support AGES in developing standards, procedures and any other appropriate tools to support the members of AGES when developing their business.
“Our members often need to assess business opportunities outside their core markets quickly and comprehensively before they enter into any commitments,” said Daniel Cordey, chairman of AGES.
“It is key to know exactly the import and export regulations or the tax implications when delivering works at an event in a new country, so we are pleased to get the expertise of EY to elaborate the necessary tools.”
EY has already supported AGES members. Wim Kurvers, partner at EY said “In recent years, sustainability has become one of the most important criteria in organizing large events. This has led to a significant increase in the use of temporary infrastructures.
“We see our partnership with AGES as a unique opportunity to further develop this fast growing industry and thus help building a better working world.”
AGES’ Industry Partner Program (IPP) is created for leading industrial companies who are directly connected with the business of its members and associate members and are willing to support the objectives of AGES in specific thematic categories.
Through knowledge transfer and active involvement by the partners, new standards and policies will be established for the event suppliers industry.
The IPP has identified 5 categories and AGES is now seeking an industry Partner for each of these categories.
The Association of Global Event Suppliers (AGES) is a not-for-profit organisation based in Switzerland which has been formed to become the label for quality and reliability for temporary infrastructure works for major events.
