New Wallace Foundation Report Highlights National Conference

Uncovering what your audiences and donors truly find exciting about your offerings and organization is a fundamental step in developing solutions to the difficult questions that you face.  Delivering what patrons are seeking, in the way they are seeking it, is the key to boosting your revenue.

The National Arts Marketing, Development and Ticketing Conference, featuring the new Wallace Foundation Report “Taking out the Guesswork,” will focus on the myriad ways your organization can benefit from the latest research, resources and strategies that others are using to increase ticket sales and donations. The conference will include a Special Digital Marketing Track geared toward helping solve the complex challenges you are tackling in the digital world.  Delegates at the conference will return to their office with a cohesive plan for bringing the disparate parts of their campaigns together into one coordinated effort.

The Price is Right!

Your team holds the keys to unlocking winning engagement strategies to find, retain and upgrade patrons, and strong collaboration is paramount to your overall effectiveness.

That’s why we have built 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. Register by October 10 to get the lowest price and bring a colleague for FREE (2-for-1).  Plus, each additional attendee is just $159.

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. We are told over and over that the 2-for-1 pricing makes it possible for attendees to be able to attend the conference, so make sure to take advantage of this offer by October 10.

Plus, if you can’t attend the entire conference, you can transfer your registration to someone else in your organization for the times when you can’t be there.

Make sure to register early; space is limited and will sell out. Be certain to make time away from the office for your professional advancement. Free Wi-Fi will be available so you can stay connected to the office.

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.

Join us for two days of unprecedented learning and fun during this magical time of year in Los Angeles!
