The Illinois Special Events Network Convention is a two day event designed for people who manage, plan, and organize festivals and special events. 8 artists will be chosen to showcase at the convention in front of 150 festival and event planners. These planners are from park districts, chambers, villages and festival organizations in Illinois. Many are looking to book the entertainment for their events. Along with the entertainment showcase, the convention offers educational sessions, a marketing awards luncheon, and a vendor expo.

The Entertainment Showcase takes place on Wednesday, February 4, 2009 from 4:15 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. Artists will be allowed 15 minutes to perform. All genres are accepted.

The deadline to submit your electronic press kit is January 5th, and a committee made up of ISEN board members will review the submissions. Those not chosen to perform will be allowed to pass out promotional materials at a table in the hallway during the showcase. You will be notified by January 15th if your act will perform.

Each Showcase participant will be provided a table in the hallway to book business during the showcase. Entertainment showcase participants may prepare their table between the hours of 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 4, 2009.
