We send our staff to the Event and Venue Marketing Conference annually because it is an incredible opportunity for them to network, brainstorm and learn about new trends alongside other marketing and public relations professionals in our industry. There are several different marketing conferences out there, but this one is the only one that really focuses specifically on marketing and public relations for arenas and theatres.

As a former Director of Sales and Marketing, I found EVMC one of the most creative and energetic conferences I have ever attended. If you want your staff to think outside the box and do things differently, EVMC is a must!
John Bolton, Senior Vice President, Oak View Group
Attending the conference has never failed to provide an array of benefits: The opportunity to meet and socialize with industry peers, whether from venues, attractions or vendors. In current jargon it’s called 'networking;' in fact, it should be called 'meeting colleagues and developing life-long professional relationships'; and a terrific learning and motivational opportunity to stay current with trends in marketing…learn what others are doing…and share ideas and experiences.
Bob Collins, Owner, Sarasota's Big Top Tours
EVMC is the conference that established relationships and contacts that have been the backbone of my career. In 25 years I have never attended any other industry conference that was more inspiring and professionally productive. ANYONE in marketing of events, entertainment or booking will receive ten fold on this investment in their career by attending EVMC.
