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.”
“(Regarding Block Booking) Thank you, Jeanette for your prompt work. I've gotten a call from Las Vegas already. Talking about dates! Thank you!!!”
“This was my first time attending the conference and I was very appreciative the warmth and openness of everyone I met. The volunteers, artists, presenters, hotel staff, etc were all so very welcoming and engaging. One of the best music conferences I've attended. Great hotel and music venue as well. Thank you for including me in your showcase group this year!”
“To the wonderful team at ANW: Let me say that I was very impressed with the overall vibe at the event. It was friendly, welcoming, professional and inspiring and I think that comes from the organization behind the event and the people tasked with the operations. I remember having questions before I even applied to showcase and from that first question to the closing of the event, mine was a great experience.”
“I enjoyed everything that Arts Northwest offered. Connecting is probably the thing that I value the most and Arts Northwest gives us plenty of opportunity to do that. Starting from the welcome reception through the block booking meetings I had so many opportunities to meet new faces, exchange business cards, and walk away knowing that I have made another connection that may be of some value to my organization.”
