Sponsorship Opportunities

The Pennsylvania Spring Arts Conference draws all types of presenters, including colleges and universities, performing arts centers, festivals, community concerts associations, community arts councils, and more. Your sponsorship or gift helps us keep our registration fee low so that it stays affordable for all to attend. Your sponsorship or gift allows those people who may have never attended a large booking conference to know who you are as well.

Any questions? Please contact PA Presenters administrator Cathy Little at cathy@papresenters.org or conference chair Hank Knerr at hank.knerr@iup.edu.
