ArtsMarket provides three days full of opportunities to see world-class performances in the historic Carolina Theatre, to network with colleagues from North Carolina and the surrounding region, and to sit back and enjoy some Southern hospitality. Conference activities take place in downtown Durham, where theatre, exhibit hall, and hotel are all in one connected footprint.
Durham welcomes hundreds of presenter, artist, agent, vendor, and service provider delegates over the course of the conference. We offer 35-40 juried showcase performances, and 120 exhibit booths at the Durham Convention Center. All conference activities are scheduled to not conflict with one another, so delegates can fully participate.
What the delegates have to say:
"The best value, most impressive and best-run conference I've attended in years and years."
"The hotel/exhibit hall/theatre layout was fantastic--so convenient to be under one roof."
"The warmth of the organizers, the high caliber of showcasing artists, and the professionalism throughout the event made this conference enjoyable and valuable."
"We all came back bursting with ideas for next season."
Durham is the place "where great things happen!" Visit the Convention and Visitors Bureau site to help plan your trip.
