What to Expect at The Producer's Perspective Super Conference 2019

Expert Keynotes and Presentations

We are bringing together top industry professionals to speak on a range of topics within the business of Broadway. Our Keynote speaker, John Cariani, is one of the top-produced playwrights in the country and offers a unique perspective on how his play Almost, Maine has become such a success.

Panels of Professionals

Our panels were a hit last year, so we're bringing them back! But, this year we'll discuss new topics that are challenging you and the Broadway business at large. Learn about raising money, theatre law, how to build your brand, audience development and more!

Valuable Networking and Connections

Attendees range from Playwrights to Producers to Artistic Directors at established regional theatre. This mix creates unique networking opportunities you just can’t find anywhere else. Mingle with you fellow attendees on breaks and at our happy hour events!

"It's about getting in a room with similar, like-minded, passionate people. And, when people who are super passionate get in one room, meet each other, listen to experts . . . it explodes with action as a result."

-Ken Davenport

Tony Award-Winning Producer

What Attendees Had to Say

 I'm amazed by how many industry professionals were all available within the same window of time, and I'm grateful they were, and that you and your crew were able to coordinate the weekend's events. The panels made the theater industry seem more approachable for those of us who would like to be more involved. It was a unique idea, yet it made so much sense. Thank you so much for being so inclusive, for sharing your knowledge, and for providing opportunities such as these.

I pitched my play, BEDAGGARED, to Ken at the Producers Perspective Super Conference.  That was a great privilege and very valuable. I booked a staged reading of this play at The Players Club for Jan 31, 3pm.  I've never been more excited about anything, ever! No one asked me to give a plug, but what I have learned from Producers Perspective is what has allowed me to enter this NY world of theater with a real chance at being a part of it, not just a wish and a dream.
