25 tweets to mark 25 years

The Queen Elizabeth II Centre celebrated its 25th Anniversary in 2011. To mark the occasion we used Twitter to ask key industry spokespeople, event organisers and suppliers to tell us the innovation that they think has made the most impact on the events industry over the last 25 years.

It sparked quite a response and the top 25 tweets we received are below:
