In conjunction with two specialised events publications, IMEX Group launched a survey titled Women in the Events Industry – equal partners or assistants?

The research aimed to establish where the international events industry stands in terms of equality, career opportunities and work-life balance. Within three weeks, 3,059 women from across the world opened the link to the survey, with almost one third providing answers.

The results revealed that 66 percent of women in the events sector enjoy being part of the industry. However, just three out of 10 women said they felt equal in terms of salary and six in 10 women do not believe they have the same career prospects as their male counterparts.
