NAPAMA Agents & Managers Retreat 2017

The 7th Annual NAPAMA Agents & Managers Retreat Returns to the Poconos May 21-23

The NAPAMA Agents & Managers Retreat is now in its seventh year! It has grown since its inception in 2011, both in numbers and in ideas and content. In 2017 we return to the Pocono Mountain area of Pennsylvania to the gorgeous and relaxing Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort in Shawnee on Delaware, PA Sunday, May 21 through Tuesday, May 23.  

The NAPAMA Agents & Managers Retreat is open to any agent, manager, self-managed artist or presenter who is interested in being part of the conversation. The Retreat provides small business owners who operate within the performing arts industry an opportunity to network, learn and share information and resources with other agents and managers. It is three days where agents and managers step away from their daily operations to focus on business planning and solutions for current issues. This year's topics will include business technology, content marketing, agency methodologies, curatorial marketing, international touring, and work/life balance.

Our special guests this year include Art Waber, Certified Integrative Health Coach and former artist manager and NAPAMA member; David Rowell, Assistant Professor of Arts, Entertainment and Sports Management at Point Park University, David Dombrosky, Chief Marketing Officer for InstantEncore, an arts marketing and technology firm; and Christy Bolingbroke, Executive/Artistic Director of the National Center for Choreography, University of Akron.
