On Schedule

December 29 - 31
The WAA Conference convenes presenters, artists and agents around the shared goal of programming live performances. The four-day schedule is filled with exhibits, performances, networking, speakers, classes and workshops. The Commons—our meeting and exhibit space—cultivates discovery, business insight, and connection.

A Focused & Innovative Marketplace

Presenters and Arts Associations
From established artists to emerging talent, access artists in every discipline to fit your programming needs and budget. Expand your artistic programming expertise and technical knowledge through our Professional Development courses, in-conference workshops, roundtables, and conversations with peers, while our Independent and Juried Showcases allow you to sample the diverse talents of the delegation.


Artists, Managers, Agents, Consultant/Vendors, and Arts Associations
Share your or your artists' work with more than 200 presenting organizations based in the West. The Commons format has been developed to best help you connect with presenters and colleagues. Introduce a project to a room full of Presenters during our Discovery Sessions, or enjoy great social and professional networking over local cuisine on a Dine-Around. Broaden your range of practical skills to help plan and achieve effective tours during our Professional Development Institute. Performing artists will find opportunities for stimulating discussions about art and ideas with other artists, agents, and presenters.
