Arts Midwest Conference

One of the best places to discover touring artists and connect to your colleagues is our annual Arts Midwest Conference, the preeminent booking and educational conference for the Midwest performing arts industry. Attended by nearly 1,000 performing artists, managers, and agents; performing arts presenters/venues; and arts administrators from throughout the United States and beyond, the four-day conference offers diverse opportunities for attendees to network, learn, and experience live performing arts. You’ll also be able to meet with your state presenter network colleagues at the Conference.
