One of the region's largest gathering of artists, their management, and presenters of the performing arts. Four highly productive and professional days include dynamic performance showcases, Keynote Speaker, workshops, block-booking sessions, a packed exhibit hall, pitch / perform sessions, and social networking opportunities!  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!

The NW Booking Conference is an opportunity to renew, refresh and remember why it is what you do with commitment AND passion.  

All attendees must be current Arts Northwest members.
