Registrations for Adelaide Fringe’s Honey Pot program open Thursday 3rd October 2019.
Adelaide Fringe is inviting industry people to register to be part of Honey Pot, which is Adelaide Fringe’s International Arts Marketplace.
Industry delegates from around the world attend Adelaide Fringe to see shows and meet artists for future bookings and onward opportunities.
Honey Pot is recognised as a valued platform connecting artists and their projects with a broad range of national and international industry decision makers.
Adelaide Fringe 2019 saw 256 delegates from 26 countries participate in Honey Pot representing a projected value in deals of more than four million dollars.
Tracked outcomes already exceed 200 interstate and international touring and performance bookings as a direct result of the Honey Pot, which is open to programmers, festivals, producers, bookers, talent scouts, venue owners, film and television producers, tourism industry, and just about anyone who is looking to connect with Fringe artists to discuss future bookings.
“The meetings we set up in the Honey Pot lead to touring deals and long term relationships between artists, venues and festivals around Australia and the world. The Honey Pot marketplace is a way for Fringe to support artists year-round, not just during the month of Fringe. It is amazing to see how the Honey Pot has built capacity for so many artists – it creates earning (and learning) opportunities for them year on year. The Honey Pot platform is strengthening creative industries in Australia and beyond,” Adelaide Fringe Creative Director and CEO Heather Croall says.
Over the past five years, Honey Pot has seen exponential growth with touring deals for artists growing ten fold since 2015, further solidifying the Adelaide Fringe’s international reputation and industry recognition as an important launch pad for artists.
Tammy Ryan, Head of Programming at the Frankston Arts Centre in Victoria says, “Honey Pot gave us access to the national and international market of work that we have never had access to before.”
Registrations to be a Honey Pot Industry Delegate are open between 3 October – 13 December via Adelaide Fringe’s AVR platform HERE.
