Welcome to the place where festivals converge
About the conference
FestForums Santa Barbara is back for 2018!
Our Santa Barbara Conference is the biggest with over 800 attendees and over 80 exhibitors in 2017.
Best of the Fests
As usual, and because this conference is all about you, the festivals, our Best of the Fests award ceremony will take place during the conference and will award 9 different festivals in different categories.
This year our agenda consists of 2 days of panels with 2 tracks each day. Panels will include diverse and current topics such as VR, cryptocurrency, and the always popular festival bootcamp (subject to change). Let us know if you have any suggestions!
There's always entertainment at FestForums!
From cocktail parties to live music to special performances, there's something for everybody!
We strongly believe in edutainment!
It's not FestForums without a big exhibit hall!
Get to know the sponsors and exhibitors, do business, or party and have fun! Or all the above maybe? After all, the exhibit hall is where it's at!
