Workshop sessions include tour planning, attending industry and contact events, career and financial management, marketing and promotion, applying to showcases, and more.

Pitch & Perform: Participants are invited to participate in five-minute Pitch/Perform sessions and receive feedback from trainers. Often featured at industry events, Pitch/Performs offer an opportunity to showcase their talent to buyers.
