Meet IFF’s 2018 Partners


Being a small event with a very focussed crowd, IFF relies on support from key industry partners. So we’re entirely thrilled to be introducing our first round of industry partners, each of whom has a product or service entirely relevant to IFF delegates and the broader festival industry.

IFF Ticketing Partner this year is Eventbrite, the world’s largest event technology platform, processing over 150 million tickets in 180 countries in 2016. Founded in 2006, the company has 11 offices in eight countries.

Associate Partner Ticketmaster is a name known to all in the festival business. Ticketmaster is the global market leader in live event ticketing, digital marketing, and mobile fan engagement tools that drive over 530 million ticket transactions per year.

The Music is GREAT team also return to IFF as an Associate Partner, promoting the world-leading companies and diverse talent pool that the UK music industry offers overseas companies, connecting them through the Department for International Trade (DIT)’s extensive network of specialists, located in over 100 markets around the world.

Also signing up as an Associate Partner is Festicket, a leading online portal for festival information and experiences that works together with over 1000 of the world’s greatest festivals to create great packages for modern festival-goers that can be bought in just one click.

And IFF would not be complete without award-winning event and venue security specialist Showsec, the firm dedicated to achieving excellence in crowd management. With core commitments of safety and customer service, Showsec manages the safety of over 25 million people at venues, sports, festivals and public events each year.

Networking break sponsor MEGAFORCE produces stage systems of the highest quality and flexibility which cover a wide range: classic round arch stages, tower platforms for the open-air use, center stages for indoor use as well as individual design stages and edm stages.

And completing the first round of IFF partners is Integro, the market leading international insurance brokerage and risk management company. Integro’s entertainment and sports practice provides specialist insurance covering a wide variety of events, touring artists, shows, festivals and venues.
