In five minutes or less, artists and agents pitch projects and/or perform. This session is an opportunity for exhibit hall delegates who are not showcasing the opportunity to address presenters.This is a great way for non-showcasing artists to increase visibility at the conference.

To be eligible for a pitch session at our upcoming conference, you must be a registered attendee with a booth in the exhibit hall. Artists Showcasing in 2018 are not eligible. Sign up is on a first come, first serve basis. You will be given the option to sign up when you register.

The Pitch & Perform sessions are intended to increase the visibility for artists at the conference that are self-represented or new to the conference.

Artists that have a Juried or Sessions Offsite Juried Showcase are not eligible to sign up for a Pitch & Perform spot.

Agencies can sign up for a spot but preference will be given to self-represented artists and artists new to the conference. We have a limited number of spots reserved for agencies, so once those spots are filled, you will be placed on a waiting list.

Guidelines for agencies:

  • Please do not pitch your entire roster. We ask that you sign up with a particular artist in mind
  • If you have an artist showcasing, you are not allowed to mention that artist during the P&P.

Sign up early as spaces will fill up quickly. Pitch and Perform Sessions will be Tuesday, Oct 9, beginning at 10:30 am.

Artists that applied to showcase for the current year, and did not receive a showcase spot will be given a limited (one week) head start to register for the conference (with a booth) and sign up for a Pitch and Perform spot. After the one week pre-registration, a spot will not be guaranteed - it will be on a "first come, first serve" basis.
