The events revolution has seen UK festival numbers swell from a handful in the 90s to more than 2,850 last year, netting more than £5bn for UK Plc. Despite this, negative media coverage has warped public and institutional perceptions.

The Political Economy of Informal Events, 2030 debunks common myths about event-related crime, and outlines emerging growth areas for retail on both a micro and macro level. The results present a strong case for promoting the medium of events to local authorities and planners.

The findings from the report will be discussed by its authors on the Main Stage at the Event Production Show at 10am on 26 February, Olympia London. The report’s publisher and commissioner Mash Media will be represented on the panel by Julian Agostini (MD, Mash Media), who will be joined by Alan D Miller, (chairman, The Night Time Industries Association) Nick Morgan (CEO, We are the Fair) Kaya Comer-Schwartz from Islington Council.

Foreword by: Julian Agostini, (MD, Mash Media), Alan D Miller, (chairman, The Night Time Industries Association) Nick Morgan (CEO, We Are The Fair).
