2013 Western Arts Alliance
Annual Conference Aug 27 - 30
Los Angeles, CA
The WAA Conference convenes presenters, artists and agents around the shared goal of programming live performances. The four-day schedule is filled with exhibits, performances, networking, speakers, classes and workshops. The Commons—our meeting and exhibit space—cultivates discovery, business insight, and connection. For 2013, we return to the Los Angeles area, a city renowned for its vibrancy, diversity, energy, and motion. The beautiful Hyatt Regency Century Plaza brings it all together in a site that is comfortable, compact, and yes, sexy. LA and WAA, the perfect script for opportunity, reward, and inspiration!
Preconference Registration is now closed. You can register for the conference, and add any events you'd like to attend to your existing registration at the Registration Desk onsite.
From established artists to emerging talent, access artists in every discipline to fit your programming needs and budget. Expand your artistic programming expertise and technical knowledge through our Professional Development courses, in-conference workshops, roundtables, and conversations with peers. WAA's unique Performance West Series provides wonderful opportunities to enjoy a full evening of dance, theatre, or music, while our Independent and Juried Showcases allow you to sample the diverse talents of the delegation.
