If you are coming to Edinburgh to explore the Fringe and maximise the unique opportunities that it offers as an arts market, then the Arts Industry Office is the place to start. Our team supports hundreds of industry professionals to navigate the festival and the city, helping them plan their schedules and finding them the right artists to connect with. We are on hand from May through to the end of August to help industry professionals make the most of their time at the Fringe.  

“They were incredibly helpful, efficient, friendly and knowledgeable"

The first step in gaining this support is to accredit with us. This online process is an opportunity for you to tell us about yourself and the professional development opportunities that you can offer artists and companies at the Fringe, be it bookings, residencies, collaborations, or advice and support. This information will be visible to Fringe artists who engage with our participant development team to look for opportunities after the Fringe. It also helps our arts industry and participant development teams with matchmaking; ensuring that you find exciting talent and that relevant artists and companies can contact you. 

Once you have been accredited then you will have access to events, exclusive online news and information, reviews and features, and access to our team and box office and (from 30 July 2018) in Fringe Central, our participants’ hub.   

“Unfailingly polite, cheerful and welcoming”
