JOIN US IN CALGARY: AUGUST 29 – SEPTEMBER 1, 2022
This year’s conference will be held in Calgary, Alberta — a growing, vibrant city with a rich cultural life and excellent infrastructure for the conference.
Please be aware that full vaccination status is mandatory for travelers entering Canada, per Canada’s COVID-19 travel rules — as well as being a requirement to attend the conference.
YOUR DOMAIN FOR CONNECTION, DISCOVERY & INSIGHT
The WAA Conference provides a prime environment for connection, discovery, and insight: a space for presenters, artists, agents, and practitioners from the West and beyond to connect, to discover, and to pursue their shared goal of programming live performances. Over the course of the four-day in-person convening, expect robust networking opportunities, exciting live performances, eclectic exhibits, informative workshops, and dynamic forums.
NEW FOR 2022: EXTENDED PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMING & CHANGES TO THE EXHIBITOR EXPERIENCE
This year’s in-person program will be supplemented with pre- and post-conference virtual professional development programming – a chance to connect and reengage, continue conversations, and bring additional colleagues into the fold. This virtual component will be available to all conference attendees as part of the cost of registration. It will also be available as a standalone registration for those who do not attend the conference in-person.
We’re also making some changes to exhibiting that we believe will provide a more versatile, streamlined, and equitable exhibiting experience for everyone. Visit the exhibiting page for more details.
