GAME CHANGE ~ forward thinking marketing and public engagement in the arts and cultural sector

This Arts Marketing Association (AMA) conference will share success stories from a diverse range of people who have significantly changed the game for their organisation – whether that’s dramatically raising earned income, reaching new target groups, engaging people on a deeper level or transforming the impact that their company has for their communities.

After AMA conference 2012:

An enjoyable and motivating event in a beautiful setting. Well organised and professional. I wish my whole organisation could have attended so we could all be inspired in new ways. Thank you.

I have been to many conferences over the years (mainly Private Sector) … Congratulations! This was the finest I have been to.

felt it was very inspiring about leadership it was very refreshing to hear chief execs talk and I would like my Chief Exec to have attended too!

First AMA conference – loved the Twitter build up. It was lovely to meet people with that background in a great location which added to relaxed and welcoming environment. AMA staff very friendly and everything ran v. smoothly. On the strength of the conference, I plan to remain an AMA member even if I change role or type of organisation.

I was incredibly impressed with how well run the conference was. I feel I left the breakout sessions with lots of practical advice and found the keynote speeches enriching and inspiring.

Fantastic venue catering. Great facilities – at no point was I hungry. Lunch was brilliant and delicious. Faultless. Well done to the venue staff, I thought it was a brilliantly organised event venue staff. AMA staff were always on hand to help. 

With thanks to
