The Festival of New Musicals gathers over 600 industry members to see presentations of eight new musicals over two days. This is followed by the Fall Conference, where our members and invited guests will discuss the opportunities and challenges in producing new work and other issues relevant to the industry.

This year, these annual events will be preceded by a gala celebrating 30 years of the Festival. Our standard Festival and Conference sponsorships will be in place, in addition to opportunities at the gala, or combination packages.

In addition, advertising is available in the Festival Program, a full color printed book given to all attendees.

NAMT members network at ZACH Theatre in Austin at the 2014 Spring Conference.

Our Spring Conferences are hosted by our member theatres in a different city each year, and generally focus on marketing, fundraising, or a combination of the two — what we like to call the “full patron experience.” In 2019 we will be hosted by The 5th Avenue Theatre in downtown Seattle, and Village Theatre, just outside the city in Issaquah.

Details on sponsor/exhibitor rates and benefits for these events will be available here soon. Email Development Associate Jen Whitton to learn more now!


Advertising is available year-round in our News & Notes and New Works News, which are sent to over 1,000 of our members and Festival alumni writers monthly. For more information please contact Membership Director Adam Grosswirth at adam@namt.org.
