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 that have contributed to the funding and compilation of the Guide:
