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 over a thousand industry professionals to navigate the festival and the city each year.

We help them plan their schedules and find 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.


Accrediting with the Arts Industry Office means you’re able to access a range of exclusive events and resources reserved for arts industry professionals.

The application process involves filling in an online form which is an opportunity for you to tell us about yourself and the professional development opportunities that you can offer artists and companies.

If you choose to, this information can be visible to Fringe artists who engage with our participant development team to look for opportunities after the Fringe. The Fringe is not just a festival that happens once a year, it’s an opportunity for artists and producers to meet and the relationships that come out of those meetings can help shape the industry for years to come. If you want to be part of that you should accredit with us.
