The 2016 Conference for Festivals is in Hull this year, hosted by Freedom Festival, over two days – 23 and 24 November – and you are invited!
If you can't come there is a digital option - Extend The Audience is curated from our packed program to produce an avenue for those unable to attend so you can participate in an enjoyable and social way. This year we have live streamed sessions to watch, a video lounge for you to meet and we have a webinar style session on Huzza to extend the open space session on day 2 into the online audience.
A broad range of festival professionals will be ‘Joining up the Dots’ with a format that focuses on shared knowledge and experience including both interactive debates led by sector professionals and round-table discussions focussing on the organisational detail (everything you ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask!), this annual event is designed for everyone involved in the festival and live events sector in the UK.
