Each year we invite a wide range of Arts Industry Professionals to attend Brighton Fringe, in the hope that they will help our participants further their careers and take their work to new audiences.
 
The Arts Industry Professionals who are invited include:

Tour Bookers

Rural Touring Networks
Freelance Producers and Directors

In 2017 our visiting Arts Industry Professionals requested over 500 tickets to over 250 shows. This led to many events receiving further tour dates, including internationally.
