Oliver Dowden, UK secretary of state for the department of digital, culture, media and sport, recently said the events industry is likely to return to normality by Easter. The government’s Winter Plan that enables venues in tier 1 and tier 2 areas to host events with audiences was a ‘glint of light at the end of the tunnel’, he told the Major Events Summit.

He said, “I know it’s nothing like normalcy but at least it provides some progress. Much more importantly that when we look at the path through to Easter, in recent days we have seen a stream of positive news about potential vaccines and testing. I really do firmly believe, and I know the prime minister shares this view, that a return to normality is firmly within our sights,” he was quoted as saying by UK media reports.

While 2020 was a terrible year, 2021 would be a year of recovery and 2022 will be a year of celebration, he added.
