AEV

Share best practice

What  we do

We firmly believe in the development and promotion of best practice to enhance and grow the industry as a whole.

By developing and promoting best practice, we aim to enhance and grow the industry as a whole and ensure that every venue has access to tools and resources to enable them to be the best they can. From our board, through our steering groups, working groups and via our conference, we encourage open and honest debate and a solutions based approach to create meaningful output.

We record and share our best practices via a range of resources including our eGuide. FaceTime and CDM Resource Pack.

"Through the AEV, and the working groups in particular, members can share best practice and formulate consistent responses to emerging challenges.” 

Andy Coulson - Head of Airshow Operations, Farnborough International
