This will be one of the largest gatherings of artists, their management, and presenters of the performing arts in the region. Attendees will enjoy activities including dynamic performance showcases, an expanded roster of late night showcases, 5 minute "Pitch and Perform" sessions, keynote speakers, professional development workshops, block-booking sessions, networking opportunities, a packed exhibit hall, and fun social events, all adding up to four highly productive and professional days. Presenters of the performing arts will discover untapped resources, ideas, and inspiration. Performers/artist's management have a medium that allows them access to the presenting organizations and individuals throughout the northwest, and helps get them in front of the audience most capable of booking them into the western U.S. market! All attendees must be current Arts Northwest Members.
Who Should Attend the 2019 Arts Northwest Conference?
Performing Arts Presenters: The Annual ANW Conference allows you as a performing arts presenter, to see, hear and meet with hundreds of artists, their agents, and management in a friendly yet professional setting.

Participate in the block booking activities to get a jump on your season or event.
Performing Artists, Managers, and Agents: Share your work with western-based performing arts presenting organizations – theatres, festivals, community concert associations, college presenters and more.
