Marketing and the Concert Experience: 21st Century Lessons Not Just for Millennials


PRESENTER
Aubrey Bergauer, Executive Director, California Symphony 

Everyone's talking about how to attract millennial audiences, but one orchestra's findings show that the music itself isn't the problem, and the solutions aren't just for millennials. These results of the California Symphony's "Orchestra X" project on user experience went viral this year with tens of thousands of hits, and ultimately received attention from The Wall Street Journal, who wrote, "What is most striking about these changes is that you don’t have to be under 35 to appreciate them...they’re common-sense responses to the unmet needs of potential concertgoers of all ages." Hear how the California Symphony has implemented changes based on their findings, how their concerts are selling out because of it, and how your organization can take real (and easy!) actionable steps to do the same.

Cosponsored by the Association of California Symphony Orchestras (ACSO). Free for Arts Reach and ACSO members.

Do You Know the Top Ten Data Points for Your Marketing and Fundraising Success?


PRESENTER

Paul Miller, Principal, NeverDark Consulting 

Numbers don’t lie, and the field of data science is transforming the way organizations conduct business at every level. The best part is, you already have all the data you need to help make informed decisions that can transform your marketing and fundraising operations and sustain your organization for years to come. You don’t have to be a mathematician or scientist to leverage the power of data mining, but you probably do need some help getting started. 

Based on last year’s successful Arts Reach conference workshops, we’ll share what the top ten data points are and why they matter, teach you how to locate the data you need and perform the necessary calculations, and share the survey results of metrics from over 100 participating organizations like yours from the US and Canada. 

You’ll come away with the ability to calculate your own metrics and use them to support revenue goals and get critical buy-in from your board, senior leadership, and everyone in your organization.
