The goal of the Pitch Party is to be more productive for our presenters, agents, managers, and artists. The Pitch Party will focus on specific artists and projects that have been submitted by agents, managers, and artists for review and selected by our presenter members.

How it will work:

We will have one session in the morning and one in the afternoon, each followed by round table discussions focused on each artist/project. At the end of the day, there will be a facilitated wrap up and call to action exclusively centered on the programming needs of presenters. Presenters will need to register for the Pitch Party. There is no registration cost charged for agents/artists invited to pitch.  

The agents and artists selected will be given 10 minutes to pitch their project. They will then be able to speak more about it during round table discussions.

Details for projects being Pitched can be found on the Pitches page after October 9th. Voting for Pitches runs September 25 – October 5.
