The event which takes place at London’s EartH (Evolutionary Arts Hackney) on 12 January, will kickstart 2023 by providing a forum for the industry to discuss the challenges and opportunities in the year ahead, while also recognising key industry success stories of 2022.
The morning conference will focus on three key topics; sustainability, working through the cost of living crisis, and how to redress the impact of the pandemic on recruitment. All sessions will be chaired by Access All Areas editor Christopher Barrett.
The afternoon awards ceremony will recognise the work of promoters, production companies, venue operators and freelancers across the industry. There will be a focus on recognising newcomers and excellence across key areas such as social impact, sustainability and diversity. Entries will be judged by a diverse and inclusive panel, with full and clear details provided as to how all decisions were made.
