The Festival and Outdoor Events Show (Festout) will take place at Sandown Park on 26-27 September for its second year. Launched in 2017, Festout is aimed at bringing the outdoor events market together to learn, network and be inspired on how to create amazing outdoor events and experiences for 2019.
Following a positive launch and feedback from exhibitors and visitors, the organisers have launched registration for the 2018 event with a focus on core industry training.
Event director Duncan Siegle said: “We are talking to the industry every day via our portfolio of Access All Areas, Event Production Show and now Festout, and one area that continues to be flagged is the lack of accessible training and just how important it is, particularly in an age where rules and regulations are growing alongside heightened concerns for safety and security. We have teamed up with Storm4Events to deliver a programme of dedicated training sessions aimed at crowd management, safety and security, and emergency planning. With so many new outdoor events in the market each year it is essential that organisers are up to date in these areas and a visit to Festout will give them access to essential bite sized sessions they can really learn and develop from.”
