An Impresario, from the Italian impresa, an enterprise or undertaking, is a traditional term still very much in use in the entertainment industry for a manager or producer of concerts, tours and other events in music, opera, theatre. It is sometimes misspelled "impressario."

The term may also be used to refer to anyone who takes a leading role in organizing or orchestrating events, such as curators of art museums, web producers or the organisers of academic or business conferences.

Jacques-Yves Cousteau said of himself that he was "an impresario of scientists," in his role as an explorer and filmmaker working with scientists in underwater exploration.
