Performing Arts Exchange: THE place to book and showcase performing artists

The Performing Arts Exchange, or PAE, is an annual performing arts booking, showcasing and professional development conference managed by South Arts and hosted by a different eastern city each year.  The 2013 PAE is scheduled for Sept. 23-26 in Nashville, TN.

PAE is the primary marketplace and forum for performing arts presenting and touring – artists and work, ideas, learning and information – in the eastern U.S.  The purpose of PAE is to connect artists with audiences by fostering excellence in all aspects of presenting and touring the performing arts.

Who should attend?

  • Presenters — people who bring artists to communities. Presenters may run venues or rent places for the touring artist to perform.
  • Supporters — people from organizations who are associated with the presenting and touring but are not directly touring or presenting. Supporters may also be agents, managers, or artists who are not attending the Performing Arts Exchange to do business.
  • Exhibitors — artists, agents and managers attending the conference to book tour dates and showcase their artists.

Early bird registration pricing ends July 31. Single Day Passes, Artist Passes and Student rates are available.
