AFO: Working for and with festivals and events, supporting live arts
The Association of Festival Organisers (AFO) is a membership group of like-minded festival and event managers who believe in learning and teaching, sharing and networking to continuously improve the festival scene. Created in 1987 with a small gathering of people working in the community festival business, AFO now has over 250 members who exchange ideas and support one another to help develop our sector.
Are you a festival or event organiser, supplier, freelancer or student? If you have anything to do with festivals or events, yes anything, you should join AFO.

We will interject the sessions with live music and also give Conference attendees opportunities to chat amongst themselves, ask questions of our speakers and panellists and do our best to present an informative and valuable Conference day.
