Festival Congress 2018

AIF’s annual flagship Festival Congress will take place in Sheffield on November 6th and 7th this year. The move to Sheffield follows four consecutive sold-out years in Cardiff.

The Congress, a two-day conference and Independent Festival Awards, has become a major fixture in the festival industry calendar, attracting over 400 delegates each year. The conference will be held at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre, with the Independent Festival Awards taking place at 92 Burton Road – a warehouse venue that is well known for its ‘Peddler Night Market’ events. The second day will this year feature an extended networking brunch for all delegates.

The event is attended by leading independent festival organisers across the UK, including 83% of AIF members in 2017.
