Event Industry Great Debate
In collaboration with the Cambridge Union Society, the Alliance of Independent Event Agencies and Trident Hospitality will hold our next Industry Great debate on Thursday 121th January 2024 in the famous Cambridge Union Chamber.
Our Debate on January 11th 2023: The debate motion will focus on ‘This house believes the UK is failing and would rather go international.’
As political events continue, we are reminded of the importance of persuasive arguments and good oratory that appeal to both our rational and emotional sides. Freedom of speech is defined by the ability to see the other side. We should be able to challenge speech we consider unacceptable.
