Why Exhibit

Surviving Actors provides you with a great platform to share your business and reach a target market within the arts industry.

Surviving Actors gives you the chance to let attendees know more about the service you offer via a more personal face-to-face approach.

Surviving Actors attracts a niche market of jobbing performers who are in control of their career. We have an age limit to ensure that the event is only attended by professionals.


The event takes strong responsibility for the companies exhibiting and therefore does not attract any companies who capitalise on the ambition of performers.

Team Work

Surviving Actors is a small team and our client service is second to none. We are always on the other end of the phone, ready to support you. So all you need to do is call. Find out how to contact us.

“Equity has been coming to Surviving Actors since it began. It is always a productive event offering a wide range of support and information for actors in a professional, positive environment.”

“Surviving Actors has been a great way for us to meet and help both existing and new clients. It helps to give us a feel for what is important to actors and how we can best tailor our services to their needs. The organisation and atmosphere is excellent. We always look forward to the event and wouldn’t miss it.”

“To my mind, Surviving Actors is the best event of its kind, a place where actors at all stages of a career can find the resources, tools and connections to sustain and develop their careers. It’s an event that fosters a positive, proactive and vibrant ethos, one driven by care for actors rather than profit, and that clearly engages and enthuses those who attend. That’s why sponsoring has been such a success for my business.”
