Our diary is really starting to fill up after 8th June. We have plenty of events before the election date, but it's afterwards that we really are starting to see the bookings.
Dealing with corporate clients we know that they can be very cautious. Global events often have an impact on our bookings, and the one thing that we know that corporate clients do not like is uncertainty. So it is understandable that clients might want to put a decision involving discretionary spend off until after an event like an election.
However, bookings are actually very strong, pretty much from the day after the election onward. The decisions are not being put off until after the date. Does this mean that the general consensus in corporate Britain is that this election is a foregone conclusion?
