Every year the Team begins planning the VenturePOP Conference with a clean slate. We review the highlight reel from previous years and carve out a new and excited way to continue growing the annual gathering of our tribe.
Before we officially scout out a fresh line up of speakers, revisit amazing partnerships, or plan out an itinerary, we need a date and a VENUE that’s a perfect fit… because we’ve come to realize how big of a role the hub plays in the experience we aim to deliver. The experience that is worth the travel, makes you think bigger about your small business, and is easily worth 10x the price of admission.
We’re incredibly excited to announce that VenturePOP 2017 will be hosted at:
The New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA)
on September 30 + October 1
We envision: attendees arriving via streetcar + speakers taking the stage in a proper auditorium with artwork lining the walls + picnic lunches with your new best biz buds in the NOMA Sculpture Garden + wondering the museum galleries during breaks to let your new ideas marinate + strolling down Esplanade Ave to a bumping after-party near Frenchmen Street. Pretty cool, right?
If this sounds like an awesome weekend to you, consider purchasing a Super Early Bird ticket. This means you get to attend VenturePOP 2017 for $125 off of the General Admission ticket price.
Here’s a little more impressive info about NOMA directly from their website:
New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA), New Orleans’ oldest fine arts institution, opened on December 16, 1911 with only 9 works of art. Today, the museum hosts an impressive permanent collection of almost 40,000 objects. The collection, noted for its extraordinary strengths in French and American art, photography, glass, and African and Japanese works, continues to expand and grow, making NOMA one of the top art museums in the south.
The five-acre Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA is one of the most important sculpture installations in the United States, with over 60 sculptures situated on a beautifully landscaped site amongst meandering footpaths, reflecting lagoons, Spanish moss-laden 200-year-old live oaks, mature pines, magnolias, camellias, and pedestrian bridges.
