Who we are

The Production Managers Forum (PMF) is the only professional organisation of its kind in the UK, serving as a vital resource for production managers working across a variety of locations and industry sectors. The PMF aims to engage the production manager community, providing networking, visibility and ongoing professional development opportunities to its members.

Originally created by the ABTT (Association of British Theatre Technicians) and the SMA (Stage Management Association) in 2000 and still actively promoted and supported by both organisations the PMF is now self-run. The organisation hosts regular meetings throughout the year, giving production managers a place to share knowledge and collaboratively discuss topics and challenges facing the PMF community. In 2013 lighting supplier White Light provided the PMF with this website as a gift to the organisation.
