The AEO is part of a powerful event industry alliance of trade associations representing all aspects of the event industry. Our alliance promotes understanding and cooperation between organisations in all areas of events. AEO encourages its members to use its sister association members as each are bound by a code of conduct.


The EIA is an alliance of the organiser, venue and supplier community providing a platform for information exchange. This exchange is facilitated through working groups, public affairs, and research.

It also provides a cross association secretariat.
