Arts NW Member Testimonials!

“We have 10 cities in Alaska and several other dates on hold in Oregon, Washingon and California! The showcase really made a huge difference in our bookings in the NorthWest! Thank you for the opportunity.”
“The Arts Northwest conference is, without a doubt, one of the best run gatherings it has ever been my pleasure to attend. You are a great team and allowed business to be accomplished without any hassles or mishaps. Quite an accomplishment! BTW, it did not hurt that METALES M5 received about 25-presenter interest hits. We are going to have a 6-state tour because of the showcase. THANK YOU! ”
“This is a great opportunity for Alaska Presenters to come together for the purpose of network development, and block-booking tours in our state. I have been able to attend this conference for three years, running, and have seen growth in their participation and positive feedback from small presenter volunteers and staff.”
“This is a great opportunity to experience artists with wonderful talent, to feel comfortable conversing with new acquaintances and having the opportunity to learn more in a friendly setting.”
“Two of California Artists Management's artists were selected for the juried showcase at the 2014 Arts Northwest conference. The block-booked price was right for M5 Mexican Brass, and over 30 presenters from the region booked the brass quintet in three, back-to-back spring 2015 tours. The larger company TaikoProject also showcased in Tacoma, and the taiko company will have 5 concert residencies in October 2016. Arts Northwest showcasing is definitely worth it!”
“(Regarding Block Booking) Thank you, Jeanette for your prompt work. I've gotten a call from Las Vegas already. Talking about dates! Thank you!!!”
