Formed in the UK in 1986, the Concert Promoters Association works to promote the interests of its members; and to represent them at a national level both to the public, and to other organisations, such as UK Music, the Office of Fair Trading, the Home Office, and the Departure of Culture, Media & Sport.

If you are a member of the public, we highly recommend you visit the section on this website titled "About Your Concert Tickets".

In 1997, the Concert Promoters Association drew up a Code of Conduct, which all its members agreed to adhere to. You can also view the Code of Conduct on this website.

After consultation with the Office of Fair Trading, a standard list of Concert Ticket Terms and Conditions has been published and can be used by our members for their own concert tickets. Members of the public can view these Terms & Conditions here:
