Come on Out. Connect. Collaborate! 

Join us in Los Angeles when the National Arts Marketing, Development and Ticketing Conference convenes for a uniquely collaborative event. Due to the extraordinary success of this event over the years, we have been able to secure very favorable hotel rates (see Location page).

With the proliferation of so many ways to reach potential audiences and donors, how can you know which ones will be the most effective?  We are coming together this April to explore just that, with leaders in the field who are experts on what’s working (and what’s not) to find, retain and upgrade your audiences and donors. 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 Paul Stuart Graham and Jim Royce, this is the event that will cut through the noise and rocket-boost your marketing and fundraising efforts into the new decade and beyond. Don’t miss it!

First, have a blast on the weekend in Los Angeles! Then, 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! 

What You and Your Team Will Gain:
  • Uncover Hot Digital Marketing Trends for Greater Sales and Engagement
  • Upgrade Donors to Larger Gifts Through High-Touch Stewardship
  • Maximize Contributed and Earned Revenue by Understanding Your Patrons' Journey
  • Get First-Time Buyers to Return Again and Again
  • Tap Into the Millennial Mindset to Build Your Future Audience and Donor Base
  • Diversify Your Audiences with the Latest Strategies That are Working
  • Find Out What’s Hot and What’s Not in Content Marketing
  • And Much, Much More!
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 December 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!
