Edinburgh Showcase 2011

Tags: Opportunity

Our Edinburgh Showcase is a biennial platform of contemporary UK performance featuring some outstanding small- and middle-scale touring productions made in the UK and selected by us from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

We invited more than 200 delegates to attend the Showcase, drawn from the international performing arts sector, and including key programmers, producers and agents. The primary objective of the Edinburgh Showcase is to develop new markets and broker new collaborations between UK practitioners and our global network.
