Nick Morgan is CEO of We Are The Fair and We Are Placemaking. Nick, who founded the agency Group in 2000 has over 23 years’ experience across large-scale Event Production, Licensing and Health & Safety within public realm, large scale events and festivals.

Nick is a council member of NOEA, sits on the AIF Board, is a member of the NTIA and strongly believes that the ‘informal events’ industry, an industry that brings in over £5 billion / year, should be championed, developed and supported by Government.

The independent festival sector is close to his heart and The Fair are the largest independent festival production house in the UK working across 108 shows.

Nick has been working on a white paper ‘The Political Economy of Informal Events, 2030’ with NTIA and Mash Media that highlights the importance of the informal event industry and the fact that it doesn’t fit within current regulatory systems and how it is misrepresented in media often.

Nick often speaks on and facilitates discussion on topics that include managing growth, independent festivals, The Experience Economy,  Government advocacy, Placemaking, Licensing and Health & Safety at many industry events including Festoutthe Event Production Show, LEAOG, The All Parliamentary Group for Events, NOEA, the NTIA and AIF.
