About the Conference

We are partnering with Western Arts Alliance on this year’s conference, which will take place virtually. Once more information is available, we will provide updates on our 2020 registration process via our website, email, and social media.

Each year the Arts Midwest Conference brings together a community of arts professionals who create, present, and tour performances to audiences across the Midwest. It’s a must-attend event for anyone looking to deepen their connections with colleagues and bolster their work, including:

  • performing artists
  • artist managers and booking agents
  • representatives from performing arts presenting organizations
  • administrators from service or other arts organizations

The Arts Midwest Conference features:


Two evenings of curated Spotlight Showcases provide a forum for presenting work to a large, diverse audience in a professional setting and offer attendees the opportunity to experience live performances.
