A report produced by Bournemouth University for the Events Industry Forum has found that outdoor events contributed £39.5 billion of spend to the UK economy in 2018.
The Events Industry Forum represents the UK outdoor events industry and publishes the Purple Guide, the guidance formerly published by the Health & Safety Executive which is widely recognised as the key reference source for managing events outdoors.
Membership of the Forum, which operates as a not-for-profit organisation, is made up of event industry trade associations and representative organisations. It also has an Associated Membership of enforcement agencies and similar bodies who meet regularly to discuss issues of common interest.

The Forum has a Chair and Secretary who are responsible for overseeing the day-to-day running of the organisation as well as a Board of Directors who are elected by the membership.
The Events Industry Forum invites applications for grants for projects that will benefit the events industry.
