What is a Performing Arts Conference?

If you have ever asked this question then the video link below will help you better understand. 

"This video was produced to provide a quick overview of the major components of a performing arts conference. It was filmed at the Performing Arts Exchange Conference in 2016 in Orlando, Florida.
