AAA publisher Mash Media will be hosting a free drinks stand on the first day of the Festival & Outdoor Events Show (Festout), and we want you to join us.

Come to stand C58 opposite the main stage from 2:30pm to 3:30pm for an hour of drunken debauchery professional networking, and catch up with organisers, exhibitors, suppliers, and fellow eventprofs!

Festout is a two day exhibition focusing on the festival and outdoor events market.

The show covers a vast spectrum of events including sport, culture, airshows, fayres, community and public events, agencies and many more.

It takes place from 26-27 September 2018 at Sandown Park, Esher, Surrey, and is easily accessible from the M25 with rail links straight into London Waterloo.

After the drinks end at the Mash stand, the Access Next Gen awards will take place. The deadline for nominations to Next Gen are closing soon, so if one of your colleagues under 30 deserves to be recognised for their outstanding achievement, make sure to sign them up here.

Following this, the Festout afterparty will close the evening, which is open to visitors and exhibitors alike. There will be live music, complimentary drinks and street food stands, along with other as yet unannounced entertainment!

It’s sure to be a good time for all involved, so make sure you stop in and say hi to the Mash team, and grab yourself a free drink while you’re at it.
