We offer a variety of sponsorships designed to fit your interests, ensure you maximum exposure for your investment, and support the vital work of the Conference.

Take advantage of these opportunities to promote yourself or your artists; advertise your Spotlight or independent showcase; share information about a new series or upcoming event; or let everyone know about your funding opportunities.

Why sponsor? Our opportunities help both artists, managers, agents, and presenting organizations increase visibility before and during the Conference.

For sponsorship packages and questions, contact Katie DePew at 612.238.8011 or [email protected].
