About EIF - The Events Industry Forum

The Events Industry Forum (EIF) is an informal 'organisation' that brings together trade bodies and institutions from across the events industry to discuss and collaborate on issues of common interest. Other than the publication of the Purple Guide, which is held separately within EIF Limited, the Forum has no formal structure or membership and acts purely in the interests of the industry as a whole.

EIF is supported by the following organisations who have contributed to the finding and compilation of the guide:
