We are a committed trade body representing venues of all size and type both in the UK and internationally. We are run by our members for the benefit of our members and the wider events industry.
Whether you’re an international, national, regional, multi-purpose or specialist venue, the AEV offers you the opportunity to connect with peers, learn, benchmark and share best practice for the benefit of your business and the wider industry in which we operate.
This united presence also strengthens collaboration between venue, organiser and supplier. Peer to peer learning assists in the development of your teams and the benefit of inclusion into bench-marking reports ensures your voices are heard.
We are run by our members for the benefit of our members through an elected council of venue representatives, specialist working groups and a full time secretariat.
Membership enables venues to work closely with members of our sister organisations, Association of Event Organisers (AEO) and Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) to increase the profile and significance of events within the marketing mix and future talent.
