Overseas organisations with an interest in touring exhibitions in the UK/Europe are very welcome to join TEG.

Member benefits are outlined here. In addition, because TEG is a democratic body which responds to the needs of our members, you would be able to draw our attention to specific needs which you feel the organisation should address, and to influence priorities and policies. You could also take a direct part in shaping policy by being elected to the Executive Committee. In the longer term, you would benefit from more support for exhibitions in general and touring in particular, as your membership can strengthen TEG’s ability to negotiate and campaign.

TEG’s annual Marketplace, held in a different region of the UK each year, is an invaluable tool for those organising a touring exhibition to find host venues, or for people looking for exhibitions to hire. It is also an excellent opportunity to meet other venues, discuss current issues and share problems and concerns. Marketplace includes a themed seminar based on current case studies. TEG also organises?a programme of Professional Development?events at venues throughout the UK, and internationally in response to demand – see our Training & Events page for?details.

TEG is a voluntary body with no full-time staff. It has an Executive Committee, whose members are elected by the membership each year. The Committee meets quarterly, to review activities and spending and to plan new work. Specific tasks and projects are then managed by working groups, which either organise the projects themselves or commission detailed work as required from freelancers. Grants and sponsorship are sought for particular projects. For details of our current supporters and future projects for which TEG is actively seeking sponsorship, please see Supporters.

We have ambitious plans.?The role of TEG is constantly changing as the demands of its members?- and the landscape of touring – shifts. We want TEG to be a strategic, efficient and fully-resourced organisation with a solid base from which to develop.?We want TEG to be recognised as THE organisation to find out information on all aspects of touring. We hope our website is a useful and relevant resource for all our members. We aim to increase our membership across all?regions and sectors.
