TCG National Conference

Save the dates of June 8 - 10, 2017 for the 27th Annual TCG National Conference in Portland, Oregon!

The Theatre Communications Group National Conference provides the largest forum for the national theatre community to assemble for artistic and intellectual exchange, and we can’t wait to gather together in this exciting West Coast city famed for its brews, views, and until recently, airport photos of shoes!

The multi-day event draws hundreds of theatre professionals from around the world for meetings, speeches, performances, and opportunities to explore the local theatre community.

Most of the Conference programming will take place in the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower, with some events happening in surrounding neighborhoods. TCG-exclusive room rates at that hotel will be made available to Conference attendees. That information will be made available when Registration launches in January.

We look forward to collaborating with our theatre colleagues in the Portland area over the next year, and encourage you to stay tuned for further details about Conference registration (due to open in mid-January, 2017) and requests for session proposals (opening in late Fall, 2016). We will continue to update this portion of our website as the 2017 National Conference theme, location, and other details are announced, so keep checking back.

We hope to see you in Portland!
