Arts in April is a great time to think about event marketing! This workshop/panel is designed to give AiA participants access to professional marketers and PR people who will help you think about ways to get your event attended and your story seen and heard. We will hear about cross promotional tactics, PR and social media strategies as well as marketing best practices to ensure that you’re doing everything you can to maximize exposure for your event, exhibition or show. Join us to hear case studies and old and new tricks of the trade, from the people who know.

Arts in April Industry Preview
Arts in April is a month long festival with over 60 independent events. That’s a lot to think about! The Wine Train, in partnership with Arts in April, is hosting a preview exhibition for the entire festival and we’re kicking off the show with a special sneak peek designed specifically for Napa Valley tourism specialists, concierge, tasting room professionals and anyone who is interested in learning more about the event so they can spread the word to visitors throughout the month of April. Bring your business card to win a bottle of wine and enjoy being the first to see what Arts in April has in store for 2016!

The Matchmaker Exhibition!
February is the month of love, and we’re pleased to bring local artists and potential event venues together in our first annual Matchmaker Exhibition. This exhibition will be designed to introduce event venues (wineries, restaurants, cafes, hotels) to the amazing creative talent that resides in the Napa Valley. We would love to see partnerships for Arts in April, but we also want to see connections that last well beyond AiA and into the future. Link to reserve passes!
