Los Angeles, CA
Sharing new methods of finding, retaining, and upgrading audiences and donors is what this conference is all about. Hear from experts and peers from around the country on what is working now, and what has become obsolete.
Join us for this exhilarating learning experience – one that will have a dramatic, positive impact on the way you do business now, and for years to come. The conference will build on the themes, interactions and creative energy generated at our meeting last Fall in San Francisco. This time, make sure you are part of the momentum that is carrying our industry forward!
Connect with like-minded professionals during an extraordinary weekend of learning, discussing, socializing, and relaxing in beautiful Los Angeles. With a theme this timely, a line-up this strong, and a location this breathtaking, it might literally prove to be the conference where the future of the arts in North America is determined.
As technology becomes more and more prevalent in our daily lives, each market segment is sorting out how it prefers to interface with its friends, its communities -- and your arts organization. One-size-fits-all marketing and fundraising strategies simply don’t work anymore. For example, Millennials rely on social networks to find out what their friends are doing; Boomers don't.
Discover what works best for each segment so that you can bolster your efforts, not waste time and money, and find out how to anticipate what the next trends for each segment will be. This is the conference that will prepare you – and your organization – for the changes and challenges that are sure to come.
Exciting times lie ahead, and we want your entire team to be ready for them! Thus, we have built many team-building workshops into the program, and have structured the tuition prices so that it will be easy for you to come as a team. Teams get the most benefit from the conference, since they return to their company with the same knowledge base, ready to roll up their collective sleeves and put the new strategies to work immediately.
Don’t get left behind…to find out how to optimize your strategies and stay ahead of the curve, see the registration page for details.
