National Arts Marketing, Development & Ticketing Conference

Theme: Success Factors for Sustainable Growth

October 24-26, 2013
Hotel Kabuki, San Francisco


What could be better than coming to the most beautiful city in the world and discovering the best ways to foster growth for your arts organization?

In recent years, arts groups have been doing great work in keeping up with challenging and demanding times. Now, with the economy picking up steam, the time is right to develop new strategies for advancing your organization to a new level of stability and growth.

Are you finding, retaining and upgrading the audiences and donors you need to put your organization on solid footing? Are your departments working together to save time and money so that you can accomplish more with less? Is your branding working for, or against, you?

Are your technologies the most effective and efficient ones for your unique situation? Are your pricing strategies working, or are you leaving money on the table?

This Fall in San Francisco is the perfect moment to explore these questions — and many more — and get immediate answers when you gather with colleagues and experts from across North America. The weather in October in San Francisco, with sunny skies and refreshing breezes off the bay, will inspire your thinking and delight your senses.

Over the course of three days, you and your team will discover what strategies and tactics are right for your organization to thrive in the exciting times ahead. The insights you gain will pay for the conference registration many, many times over.

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 ideas 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.
