Connect. Collaborate. Celebrate!

Join us in Los Angeles when the National Arts Marketing, Development and Ticketing Conference convenes for a uniquely collaborative event.

Sometimes life (and business) throws us curveballs. That’s why we are coming together right now to collectively think outside the box office and blaze new trails for revenue generation: with fresh, hands-on interactive exercises, more of the vital content our Arts Reach delegates love, a special Digital Marketing Track and powerful programs with luminaries like Bob Harlow, who is sponsored by The Wallace Foundation.

Give us two days, and we’ll give you the tools and action plan you can put to use immediately to fire up your audiences and donors. And we’ll have a great time in the process!

Bring your crew. We’ll cut you a triple-fantastic deal.

The key word is Collaborate. If you’re going to chart a bold new course for your organization, it’s best to have the entire team on board at the inception. That’s why you can get the lowest price and bring two colleagues for free when you register by July 31. That’s 3 for the price of 1. Each additional registration is just $199.

Can’t spare the entire team all at once? Understood! We allow 2 colleagues to time-share one registration (you can schedule 1 on Monday/1 on Tuesday; 1 in the morning/1 in the afternoon, etc.—whatever works for you).

Want to bring the whole office? No problem!

If you’re having trouble deciding who to bring, we have the answer. You can bring up to 10 people from your organization for one very low price. Why not make everyone happy? Make it easy and get the 10-Pack Supersaver Group Rate. We are going to have fun, and the more the merrier!

Bring the boss.

Change starts at the top. So – regardless of whether your CEO, Executive Director, Dean, Artistic Director, Managing Director, Managing Producer or President is registered to attend the full conference – we’d like them to be our complimentary guest for all sessions on Tuesday, October 30, from noon to five, which includes our networking reception, roundtable discussions over lunch and then an Afternoon Intensive with audience development guru Bob Harlow, sponsored by The Wallace Foundation. It’s that important!



Professional Development Grants Available

The Center for Cultural Innovation offers monthly, competitive professional development grant opportunities. If awarded, these can help defray the registration fees for you and your team to attend “Building Resilience for Today and Tomorrow,” the 2018 National Arts Marketing, Development & Ticketing Conference in Los Angeles, October 29 & 30!

There are two types of grants that are available:
If you live in California and have been employed fewer than 10 consecutive years in the arts field, you can apply for a CALI Grant. For complete guidelines, click here. Qualifying individuals can receive up to $1,000. Ongoing Deadline: 15th of every month. CALI Grants are awarded in monthly cycles and must be applied for no later than 60 days before the event. For example, for an application received by August 15 the requested activity must take place after October  15. August 17 is the conference 3-for-1 bonus registration deadline, so you must apply for a CALI Grant by June 15 to potentially receive funding before the 3-for-1 promotion cutoff of August 17. Applications will also be accepted before the August 17 deadline to apply towards your full registration.

If you are an artist or arts administrator who lives or works in San Francisco or San José or an artist living in Los Angeles County, you can apply for a Quick Grant. For complete guidelines, click here. Qualifying individuals can receive up to $600. Ongoing Deadline: 15th of every month. Quick Grants are awarded in monthly cycles and must be applied for no later than 30 days before the event. For example, for an application received by September 15 the requested activity must take place after October 15. August 17 is the conference 3-for-1 bonus registration deadline, so you must apply for a Quick Grant by July 15 to potentially receive funding before the 3-for-1 promotion cutoff. Applications will also be accepted before the September 15 deadline to apply towards your full registration.
