Industry Delegate Participation | Honey Pot
What is Honey Pot?
Honey Pot is Adelaide Fringe’s International Arts Marketplace, providing a matchmaking service for artists and industry to connect. We offer our service to artists and industry free of charge.
Honey Pot runs alongside Adelaide Fringe (18 Feb - 20 Mar)
Every year hundreds of industry delegates from around the world participate virtually or in person to meet artists, experience bold and innovate new works and forge valuable connections they wouldn't be able to find anywhere else. Honey Pot curates an industry-specific program of panels, discussions, networking and pitching events designed to stimulate future programming and presentations.
How do I get involoved?
Registration via AVR
Industry Delegate registrations are now open and will remain open throughout Fringe! Begin your registration HERE.
Who is considered a delegate? Well anyone that has an interest in connecting with our Fringe artists and offering them onward opportunities. That might be in the form of programming work or collaborating on future work. Delegates register via AVR and complete a simple form - providing key information that is used by both the artists and the marketplace team to ensure participation with us is tailored, and experience maximised.
Virtual & In Person
We appreciate that now more than ever there is a need to be flexible. We offer two types of delegate registrations. For those who can make it over to Adelaide and can take part physically we have In Person delegates and for those who can't be here or want to take part online we have Virtual delegates. Delegate and show listings/contacts are hosted online making connections possible where ever you are. We also host talks and panels online and in person too. If your participation status changes and you need to swap we can do that with the flick of a switch, just let the team know.
Our hotel partner is Crowne Plaza Adelaide, located in the heart of the east end and on the doorstep of the Fringe. Honey Pot has an allocation of room nights that we can provide to delegates travelling to Adelaide for Honey Pot and requests are lodged in registration. Support is limited so we closed off requests on 16 December 2021.
Matchmaking - Suggested show lists
Adelaide Fringe presents hundreds of shows each year with approximately a third registering for Honey Pot. Knowing what to see and what you should see when your faced with 300+ shows to research can be a daunting prospect. That's where we can help. Our team will consider all your delegate information, types of work you've nominated as being interested in, where you come from in your practice and dates you will be here and offer up a tailored suggested show list. It's a great point of reference if you need it. Otherwise give us a call, we are happy to chat.
All registered Honey Pot shows provide up to 30 tickets across their season for Honey Pot delegates to use. The Event Finder can be used to select shows and when ready you can book a ticket via these event pages. The Honey Pot complimentary ticketing will be available from 17 December 2021.
With a limited number of tickets available to a wide range of delegates we suggest you book the shows you absolutely want to check out sooner rather than later...or just buy a ticket and put the money in the artist's pocket!
Marketplace Support/Drop In's
If you want to chat shows, find out who's in town or what you must absolutley do while here then drop by the office or schedule a catch up with us. During Fringe there's 3 of us running the marketplace and we know where the best coffee shops are!

Honey Pot's flagship event held each Friday of Adelaide Fringe (except opening Friday). Delegates host a table and take short, rotating meetings over 90 minutes with Honey Pot artists with ready to program and tourable shows. Discover new works through informal, pressure free conversations and come away feeling inspired.
HIVE Zone lists details of each of the 4 HIVE locations as well as collating all RSVP's from both Delegates and Artists. We open HIVE Zone on 7 Feb 2022. Artists and Delegates will be able confirm their attendance at any of the 4 HIVES one week prior to each one. All confirmed RSVP's link back to either the industry delegates profile or the artist's show in Event Finder, allowing both parties to research who is in the room and who to connect with.
Talks & Panels
Honey Pot, with the assistance of our delegates curates a program of talks and panels designed to provide professional development, sector knowledge and informational guidance for all artists. Delegates with an idea for a talk and panel can nominate their suggestion when registering. We aim to have all talks and panels locked in by the start of January.
Provide artists with an update on your festivals, venues and events. Artists learn about the types of works delegates seek through these Zoom sessions held throughout Fringe and hosted by a collective hive of industry delegates.
Roundtable weekly online sessions place a delegate with up to 10 artists who creatively advise and offer strategic solutions to questions and roadblocks. Producing and development are at the forefront of these sessions, with delegates offering support and expertise, and assisting Honey Pot artists embark on new projects.
Producer & Collaboration Sessions
Honey Pot brings the industry together and creative juices flow during the month of Fringe. We want to stimulate connections, conversations and future collaborations by uniting artists and producers. Use Honey Pot to align with a new partner for future work or extend your networks and present new work. Producer profiles will be highlighted through Delegate Finder and weekly networking sessions will be scheduled during Fringe.
Networking Opportunities & Brunches
Connecting with other industry delegates in Honey Pot can result in new friendships, alliances and collaborators. It can also result in some much needed reccomendations. Share must see shows or hear what other people have been seeing in our weekly industry brunches. Honey Pot also schedules weekly informal networking gatherings that bring industry and artists together for a quick hello and check in.
