Voice over insight: Why you should attend an industry conference

Voice Over Conferences: Why? What? Where? When?

Lots going on in the voice acting industry including a line up of voice over conferences that is growing and, I’m betting, will continue to grow…

Why network with your peers and, essentially, your competition? For the most part, when going to an industry function, most of the people ARE NOT your competition. They are not YOU. We have our unique way of being and doing. Walking in with that attitude welcomes connections with EVERYONE. Still, the attendees are those who do what you do everyday and generally live the same lifestyle as you. As a result, you receive A LOT from interacting for:

  • -support, empathy, understanding your business issues
  • -resources, in order to raise your own game and raise the bar
  • -educating you as to where you stand
  • -providing community
