Who we are

The Production Managers’ Forum (PMF) is a resource for anyone involved in the production management of theatre or live events.

It enables members to share ideas, information and knowledge, and to connect with each other through the PMF website, social media channels, support hub, newsletters, regular forums and social events.

The PMF is run by experienced professionals and is free to join.

It was originally created by the Association of British Theatre Technicians (ABTT) and the Stage Management Association (SMA) in 2000 and is still actively promoted and supported by both organisations, and by theatre and live events companies and suppliers.

The PMF aims to:

  • share ideas and knowledge
  • support and promote best practice within production management
  • give access to up to date information, legislation and codes of practice
  • connect Production Managers with each other through this website, social media channels, regular forums and social events
  • produce a regular newsletter
  • advertise relevant job vacancies via this website and our social media channels
  • develop a Support Hub of individuals and suppliers, to provide regional support and local knowledge
  • provide mentorship schemes for young and aspiring Production Managers
