The National Arts Marketing Project Conference came to Memphis!

Americans for the Arts (AFTA) chose Memphis as the site of its National Arts Marketing Project (NAMP) Conference – a high-profile event that took place from November 10 - 13, 2017 at the Peabody Hotel, with additional programming at the newly revitalized Clayborn Temple.

This annual conference attracts hundreds of arts and communications leaders from across the country.  The three core themes for the 2017 gathering are:  You, Your World, and Your Future.
