National Arts Marketing, Development & Ticketing Conference

Theme: Let's Get Engaged! -- Building Long-Term Patron Commitment

March 21-23, 2013
New York City
NYU Kimmel Center

Recent high tech and high touch strategies have come to the fore to help bring audiences and donors closer to arts organizations than ever before.  Whether they are already long-term patrons, or just getting started with your organization, there are new methods of engaging with your patrons that can significantly increase the life-time value of all your audiences and donors.

With tight budgets and increasing competitors, art groups that are optimizing their acquisition and renewal efforts by improving their patrons’ involvement are the ones that are thriving into the next era.  Make certain that your organization is among the best by joining colleagues from across North America for three days of learning, discussing, socializing, and relaxing in vibrant New York.

Exciting times lie ahead, and we want your entire team to be ready for them! Thus, we have built many team-building workshops into the program, and have structured the tuition prices so that it will be easy for you to come as a team. Teams get the most benefit from the conference, since they return to their company with the same knowledge base, ready to roll up their collective sleeves and put the new strategies to work immediately.

Don’t get left behind…to find out how to optimize your strategies and stay ahead of the curve, see the registration page for details.
