Information & knowledge management

Informing our members is our core business. Todays art and event sectors are marked by massive progress both in terms of technology as in terms of design and artistic concepts. STEPP follows the latest developments in the field and channels the information back to its members through regular conferences, network moments and trainings. On these occasions members get the chance to consult experts and professionals about hot topics of the moment. Members benefit from preferential participation fees for all of our events, and are the first to know about news from the arts and event sector. Our trimestrial STEPP Magazine gives insight, opinions and technical background on the latest news.


STEPP is a professional network. The association exists through and for its members. On the side we also involve external experts to assist our working groups to build up expertise and help us develop content for events and STEPP Magazine. Regional networks provide feedback and input for STEPP.


STEPP is represented in a large number of sector associations. This allows us to actively invest in op to date education and training, safe workplaces and infrastructure, and a wider recognition of technical and design professions in the arts and events sector.
