Home Programs Arts Midwest Conference Registration


We are actively exploring how to provide a meaningful experience for this year’s gathering. Once more information is available, we will provide updates on our 2020 registration process via our website, email, and social media.

The Arts Midwest Conference is the preeminent booking and education conference for the Midwest performing arts industry. Each year the Conference brings together a community of 1,000+ 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, and arts administrators.
