The convention’s planning committee has been working since January to develop innovative new programs for the event, which is being co-chaired by Valerie Tyler and Jim McTigue.
A Project Studio Expo is one highlight from the upcoming program The track will include a two-day series of clinics on best practices, and techniques for creating and operating a small studio.
