The Fringe is the biggest arts marketplace in the world, which makes it an unparalleled opportunity to network with international arts industry figures.

Accrediting with the Arts Industry Office will give you access to networking opportunities and events to help make the most of your time in Edinburgh.

Fringe Marketplace is a dedicated online showcase platform we've created in response to Covid-19. It's aim is to connect international programmers, presenters and commissioners with professional artists and tour-ready work that was due to appear at this year’s Fringe, based on the trusted curatorial reputation of Fringe venues and programmers.

To access Fringe Marketplace you need to accredit with the Arts Industry Office.


Every year the Fringe Festival provides an opportunity for arts industry members to explore, discover, and exchange. The Covid-19 crisis makes providing that opportunity even more vital.

Fringe Exchange is our online events programme through which you can engage in a series of provocations, international showcase events and panel discussions, as well as network with your peers and artists. It gives you a place to talk about the challenges and opportunities we face and learn from the experience of industry members around the world. It's a platform to talk about the connections between our new ways of working and our old practises and a space for contemplation about how we want to shape our industry going forward. 

To access Fringe Exchange you need to accredit with the Arts Industry Office.
