Now in its 38th year, Pacific Contact is the BC Touring Council’s annual tradeshow and booking conference for the performing arts. It includes artist showcases, a contact room (tradeshow booths of artists and agent/managers) workshops, networking and a hospitality suite for late night fun.
Pacific Contact 2014 runs from April 4 to 6, 2014. The conference activities take place at the Hilton Vancouver, Burnaby, BC. The showcases take place at the Michael J. Fox Theatre and at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts.
Delegates to the conference come from BC, across Canada and the US. They include performing arts and school presenters, facility managers, artists and agents/managers and government funding partners and industry representatives. On average, Pacific Contact attracts 200 delegates each year.
Presenters attend Pacific Contact to book performances for their communities, organizations, schools, festivals and facilities. They come to the showcases at Pacific Contact to experience artists “live – on stage”. They get to see who is in the marketplace and the level of artistry available for touring.
Artists, agents and managers attend to sell their shows and book tours and to network with colleagues.
Everyone comes for professional development, workshops, networking opportunities, hospitality, special meetings, presentations – and fun!
