Speed Leads Applications Are Now Open!

Jun 20 2016

Artist/Managers, Apply Now for WAA's Speed Leads!

What are Speed Leads?

Take one part blind date, one part pitch session, one part niche-marketing, and two parts of your passion and what do you get? Speed Leads, WAA’s professional mixer. Whether you are throwing or receiving the pitch, it’s productive fun for the whole crew! Artist/managers rotate one at a time through tables seated with presenters, spending two minutes at each table. Make new connections and discover new artists and programs you might not otherwise have the chance or time to find! Twenty-five artists/projects x two minutes = one productive hour.

Applications are now open for Artist/Managers*
