IMA delegates Anthony Zarro and Brian McGovern are attending the 9th
annual Tessitura Learning and Networking Conference in San Antonio, Texas, August 23—27. IMA is one of the conference sponsors.
Considered the premier and most valued gathering of arts and cultural organizations in the world, last year's conference included more than 200 organizations in attendence. The focus of this year’s conference is on tools that will help attendees focus on productivity and efficiency, which is, of course, one of the cornerstones of the IMA Enterprise Performing Arts Framework, which we have employed in our work with New York City Ballet, Boston Ballet, and are developing now for the Metropolitan Opera.
