About EVMC

The Event & Venue Marketing Conference (EVMC) is a dynamic conference that unites a diverse community of entertainment marketing professionals from across North America. Each June, in a new host city across the continent our community gathers for 3 days of in-person meetings ranging from general & concurrent sessions, breakouts, awards, networking, and evening events. All with our mission of fostering inspiration, collaboration, and innovation within the rapidly evolving entertainment industry.

Previously known as the Event & Arena Marketing Conference (EAMC) until 2024, EVMC evolved to be inclusive of all event professionals, spanning everything from stadiums and amphitheaters to clubs and live events. EVMC has consistently prioritized the education and development of both current and future generations of event marketers. The recent rebrand signifies a strategic move to further this commitment by embracing a broad network of marketers from all venues and promoters.

As a non-profit organization, EVMC is powered by a dedicated group of volunteers on our Board of Directors & Planning Committee with an aim to keep the conference affordable and accessible with the help of generous and strategic partnerships. At the core of EVMC's objectives is the facilitation of networking, education, and the exchange of trends and ideas across various disciplines. This is not only crucial for the success of the Event & Venue Marketing Conference but also essential for propelling the live entertainment industry forward. Join us as we embark on a journey of growth and connectivity, guided by industry leaders, to shape the future of event marketing and venue promotion.
