AFO Code of Practice
CODE OF BEST PRACTICE FOR FESTIVALS & EVENTS
The Association of Festival Organisers is open to any festival or event organiser who wishes to share their knowledge and experiences, learn, teach and strive for good standards in festival work.
This Code of Best Practice is reviewed and amended from time to time by the membership.
Association of Festival Organisers members agree to:
Be honest and law abiding in all dealings with public, performers, staff, suppliers and the authorities.
Ensure that they have adequate and appropriate insurance cover.
Issue all performers, staff and suppliers with approved forms of agreements/contracts and to honour all details contained within them.
Ensure that venues and sites used are safe, suitable for purpose, fully and correctly licensed.
Adopt the highest possible standards of health and safety so as not to endanger any person by their actions or inaction.
Treat all performers, staff and the public with respect and consideration.
Strive to provide an appropriate level of training for all staff to ensure their competency to carry out the tasks required.
Produce accurate and truthful information on the content and style of their event.
Apply any other relevant Codes of Practice and Conduct established by other professional bodies like NCAS, NOEA, TESA, PSA and the Events Industry Forum.
Uphold the image of the AFO in the conduct of all their activities.
Assist in the spread of the association by using the AFO Logo on all publicity material.

The En Indy Awards
The story of David and Goliath is well known but the reality is that Goliath normally wins and this is reflected in many industry awards programmes. EN introduced The Indy Award recently to cater for exactly this – to allow smaller, independent organisers to compete with their peers rather than the global behemoths we know and love.
