Concert Management Institute

June 5-8, 2018

Vanderbilt University (TN)

Audience: Students and Advisors


The 2018 NACA® Concert Management Institute is designed to give students and advisors a practical understanding of managing big budget productions. The skills acquired during this week can be applied to any show, any size, at any institution. The variety of hands on experiences make this institute truly worthwhile for both students and staff.


Through a focus on the event elements, operations and logistics within that environment, delegates will gain a better understanding of large scale event management through hands on learning. Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss real life scenarios based on interactions with industry professionals & venue tours. The institute will foster networking opportunities that can develop best practices to be shared with delegates’ respective campuses, and the institute provides advisor round tables designed to provide an opportunity for skill improvement on a staff level. Building relationships with different resources within the industry is also another great opportunity and byproduct of participation.

Advisors will be provided opportunities for round table discussions and conversations among peer groups as to advisor challenges with large scale concerts.
