The application is now closed.

Americans for the Arts invites you to submit a proposal for the National Arts Marketing Project (NAMP) Conference in Austin, TX, November 11–14, 2016. This internationally recognized conference is dedicated to providing cutting-edge arts marketing and audience engagement strategies.

NAMP attracts perspectives and insights drawn from those working in the performing, visual, and literary arts as well as those from state and local arts agencies. As the only national, cross-disciplinary meeting dedicated to teaching the latest trends in arts marketing and engagement, NAMP is designed to focus on skill-building. The Conference aims to provide attendees with concrete tools and strategies that have immediate practical application with measurable outcomes.

This year, we are accepting the following as a part of the call for proposals process:

  • Suggested Session Topics: Staying current with the latest trends in the field is critical to your success as a 21st century arts marketer. That’s why anyone can submit a suggestion for a topic or session at this year’s NAMP Conference, even if you’re not interested in presenting the topic. Suggested session topics should reflect the most critical skills and practices that underlie and enable overall effectiveness within the field.
    Due to the number of responses we receive we will not reply to all suggestions.


  • Conference Session Submissions: For those who wish to submit a session for presentation at the 2016 NAMP Conference, these submissions must be complete learning experiences. Session submissions must include a session title, description, and a minimum of three learning objectives.
    All Conference Session Submissions will receive a reply.

    If your Conference Session Proposal is selected, you will qualify for a $175 presenter registration rate, a discount of more than 50 percent. Complimentary registration is not available for presenters nor for additional panelists. Travel and lodging expenses are the responsibility of each presenter.
