EVENT PRODUCTION Forum East (EPFE) has revealed panels for its third annual summit, which will be held in the Akvarium Klub in Budapest on 15 November.

The day’s four major sessions will centre around live shows, health and safety, venues and festivals, while the “dinosaurs panel” will see industry veterans deliver words of wisdom.

“Over many years attending and running international panels I have experienced that the focus tends to be on only the top end of the industry, so arenas, stadia and large festivals are all that are talked about,” says organiser and host Carl AH Martin.

“We want to encourage best practice filtering to all corners of the industry and will be compensating for the other end of the market and making a real effort to be inclusive for venues from 25 to 5,000 capacity.”

Admission costs 18,000 forints ($61).
