2023 FEO "Celebrate" Conference

The Theme for our 2023 FEO Conference is “CELEBRATE” with the key words PASSION . PROGRESS . PERFORMANCE.

All speakers, education sessions, networking opportunities etc. will be geared towards celebrating the fact that the festival and event industry came back very strong following the two year COVID-19 Pandemic. We saw record crowds and our audiences desire to get back out there and start getting back to normal. However, there was still many challenges, including supply chain, increased cost of operations, reduced volunteer base and the need to continue to present a safe event for customers. This years Conference will CELEBRATE the successes AND help you better prepare for the issues that caused problems or challenges for festival and event organizers.
