Why We Took The ‘P’ Out of UKIP

You may have noticed a mild change to our name, from UKIP Media & Events to UKi Media & Events. Both the political party and our fantastic company sprang up at much the same time, and neither had any right to claim the other could not use the UKIP letter sequence in the manner that we both have done for many years. However, after the UK general election in 2015 – during which one member of the public demanded to enter our HQ in Dorking, entirely convinced that Nigel Farage’s offices were hidden in there – and given our global positioning with the all-important aspect of being an entirely non-political organisation, we decided it was time for a change.

Having enjoyed a truly magnificent 27 years since the company was launched in 1991 (we are now in year 28) and with many new conferences and exhibitions as well as magazines to launch in the coming years, we are acutely aware that much of what we will do in the future requires underlining the fact that we are totally non-political – so UKi Media & Events it is.
