All attendees will receive confirmation of registration via e-mail. Please review confirmation notices carefully. If you have not received a confirmation notice within three weeks of submitting your registration, or if you wish to change your registration information, contact us at events@artsusa.org.

Commitment to Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility

To support a full creative life for all, we at Americans for the Arts commit to championing policies and practices of cultural equity that empower a just, inclusive, and equitable nation. In that spirit, we are committed to making the NAMP Conference as equitable and inclusive an event as possible.

Attendees needing accommodations, including wheelchair access, hearing and visual aids, dietary needs, etc., should indicate those needs on the registration form or may contact us at events@artsusa.org.

We ask that you make us aware of your needs as early as possible. 

 
In addition, we have enacted improved ways for all to fully participate:
  • To provide access and assistance for participant costs, we offer a variety of scholarship opportunities.
  • We also live webcast and archive our keynote presentations for free on our YouTube channel for those unable to attend.
  • New this year, Americans for the Arts will live caption all our keynote presentations and provide transcripts (when able) of the keynotes after the event.
  • Our Conference hotel is ADA-accessible, as is the off-site opening reception.
  • We also require all panelists and audience participants to use microphones during sessions for ease of hearing.
  • Americans for the Arts works to ensure that requests for accommodation are met to provide an accessible Conference for all.

Government Purchase Order Policy

If you are using a government-issued purchase order to pay your registration fee, and that purchase order has not been paid at the time of arrival onsite, you will need to secure the registration with a credit card before your registration materials will be released to you. We will place a hold on that credit card for the fee until the purchase order has been paid. If the purchase order is not paid within 30 days of the Conference, we will charge the credit card on file.

Guest Tickets

Individuals interested in bringing a guest to conference-related special events (e.g., Opening Reception, Keynote Sessions) may do so by purchasing a guest ticket. Guests may attend multiple special events with ticket purchase, but purchase does not include conference educational sessions. Only one guest per conference registrant.

One-Day Registration

Don’t have time to attend the full National Arts Marketing Project Conference? Pick a day and attend for only $275 if you register by the Early-Bird deadline. You must specify which day you will attend on the registration form. One-day registrations are permitted for a single day’s attendance and cannot be combined into a two-day registration. No other discounts or promotions apply to one-day rate registrants. One-day registrations can only be applied to Saturday, November 11 or Sunday, November 12.

Special Events

The Opening Reception, breakfasts, and luncheons are included in your registration fee. Dine-Arounds are Dutch-treat, so this cost is additional and the responsibility of the attendee participating.

Student Registration

Students, both part-time or full-time, are eligible for the National Arts Marketing Project Conference student rate. Students must use the paper form to register and also submit a photocopy of a valid student ID from an accredited, degree-granting college or university. No other discounts or promotions apply.

Privacy Policy

Registrant contact information, including e-mail addresses and Twitter handles, will be shared with other conference registrants through the Participants List. Please see the Americans for the Arts Privacy Statement on our website for more information: www.AmericansForTheArts.org/privacy.asp. Registrants who do not wish to share this information must opt-out on the registration form.

All requests for refunds must be made in writing to Americans for the Arts, c/o Meetings and Events. Full refunds, minus a $50 administrative fee, will be issued to all valid requests received by October 27, 2017. Refund requests submitted after this deadline will not be considered.
