Retreat: Presenter-Agent Exhange

Monday, June 1

We are excited to announce a stellar group of specially invited presenters for our 2020 Agents and Managers Retreat for our Presenter-Agent Exchange.

The Presenter Group

Here is our initial list of invited presenters with a few more to be announced in the coming weeks. With their help, we will all dig deeper into what presenters need from agents, managers, and self-represented artists to book and promote your acts.

The Plan for the Day

Monday, June 1, is our Presenter Day. Starting at 9:00 a.m. with a hearty breakfast, we will begin our work at 10:00 a.m. After introductions by our hosts, we start by having each presenter meet with 5-6 agents/managers/artists per table. You will have approximately 20 minutes to ask the presenter whatever questions you have and engage in a small group conversation.

We will then have each presenter move, ultimately providing each agent/manager/artist the opportunity to hear from at least four different presenters. During our catered lunch, you will have the opportunity to meet with yet another presenter or two.

An Open Q&A: Then, following lunch, we will recap the morning discussions and open it up for all registrants and the Presenter Group to ask any questions yet to be answered, address burning issues you may have, and end the day with significant takeaways far beyond what we would normally get at other conferences.

Several of those in the Presenter Group will be joining us for other parts of the Retreat, so you will have additional opportunities for one-on-one conversations. And please remember that the Retreat is designated as a “no sales” zone so that all of us can learn from each other in an open environment free of the pressures of a booking conference.
