Working groups

Our working groups are the engine room of the AEO. This is where industry challenges are raised, issues debated, ideas conceived and solutions sought. Each working group is made up of a cross section of AEO members all experts in their specialist areas, and those that attend often say that it is one of the best benefits of being within membership.

In the spirit of collaboration we also have a number of cross association working groups which include representatives from event suppliers and venues, members of our sister associations AEV and ESSA.
