Please review information on this page related to upcoming industry events focusing on the Entertainment market.
Tour Connection Events (LA, New York, Nashville)
Tour Connection is an entertainment platform that connects entertainment travel bookers with the supplier community. They host three major events in the U.S. annually, in Los Angeles (March), New York City (May), and Nashville (October). They also occasionally host smaller “TCU – Tour Connection University” events in alternate cities.
In order to participate in Tour Connection events, which are invite-only for suppliers, hotels must be registered members of Tour Connection. Information regarding membership and upcoming events is available on their website: https://www.tourconnection.com/
Live Production Summit (formerly the Tour Link Pro conference):
LPS will be resuming in person conference events in January 2023, in Palm Springs, California. The Live Production Summit differs from Tour Connection because it is not a travel focused show, although there is a travel component. Hoteliers will have the opportunity to meet key Tour Managers who ultimately make the decisions on where they will place their artists and bands. This is also a lesser expensive alternative to Tour Connection. More information is available on their website: https://www.liveproductionsummit.com/
