Mash Media, organiser of the brand new Festival and Outdoor Events Show (Festout), has announced a collaboration with The Fair for its inaugural edition.
The collaboration will see Nick Morgan, CEO of The Fair, curating a programme of content for the event.
Event director Duncan Siegle commented: “It’s great that we have secured a partnership with The Fair and we welcome them on board. We’re really pleased with the sessions that have been created and hope that our visitors will find them engaging, informative and hopefully, inspirational.
“With a strong balance of experience from across all sectors of our industry, we hope to ensure that Festout becomes the ‘go to’ exhibition for news and views in outdoor events.”
Festout visitors will be able to attend the complimentary sessions designed to address issues in the industry, looking at subjects such as political challenges, the future of the industry, licensing, and health and safety.
Commenting on the partnership, Nick Morgan, CEO of The Fair, said: “We are passionate about the festival industry and want to create an open forum at Festout where we can share experiences, generate healthy debate and get people thinking about some of the issues our industry currently faces. We have brought together industry advocates to showcase what we do, discuss where we see the industry going and inspire the Festout audience.”
The Festival and Outdoor Events Show takes place at Sandown Park, Surrey, from 27-28 September 2017. The programme is available here.
The Fair has produced and supported large-scale events and independent festivals for over 17 years. The company, a large-scale event agency comprises two divisions specialising in production and in event H&S, respectively.
