Broadway producer, Brannon Wiles, had this to say about why the SEA conference is so important to attend:

"It seems to me this is a tremendous opportunity...to hear from some top-level professionals. So much of life (and professional success) is trial-and-error – and there is error – that you can't teach in the classroom. So hearing from those that have gone before you seems essential. I also think speakers will undoubtedly broaden { } perceptions and basic knowledge about just what's out there in the arts, employment-wise."

The purpose behind the SEA Conference is to help students and future artists gain insightful information drawn from the experience of other artists that have been successful in their field.
