Membership tiers



AEO organiser membership serves UK and international companies engaged in the business of organising events. Fees are calculated on total ‘event portfolio revenue’, which includes all revenue driven from event related activities and brands including stand space sold, sponsorship, partnership, delegate, digital revenue both in the UK and abroad.

Membership Form



AEO enterprise membership serves those engaged in the business of organising events having been trading for less than two years, or turning over less than £1m per year. This category is perfect for start-ups, or companies new to the association – after two years (or revenue exceeding £1m) enterprise members become full AEO organiser members.
