Voice Over Conferences You Should Attend at Least Once

Conferences. You either love ‘em or  you hate ‘em. Some people relish the opportunity to get away for a few days, meet new people, and hear what some of the best in the business are saying. Others, however, see these events as a major drag - and an expensive one, too. Regardless of how you feel about conference, it’s a good idea for any voice over artist who’s making a career out of their talent to attend at least a few of these events. Here are the ones I recommend:

     VO Atlanta - This highly interactive conference is appropriate for actors of all skill levels, because there’s truly something for everyone. Featuring in-depth, small-group sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and work with other actors for a unique learning experience that will help you grow as a professional. Held in Atlanta in spring each year, this is conference that encompasses virtually every aspect of working as a voice over professional, and it’s one you don’t want to miss.
     The Midwest Voice Over Conference - It’s location smack dab in the middle of the country makes this a convenient choice for many of the best talents in the biz. Sponsored by some of VO’s most recognizable businesses, such as voices.com and Voice123, this event has made a big impact even though it’s only been around a couple of years. There’s always a great keynote speaker, along with lectures from other big-name professionals. There’s also an assortment of educational workshops you can attend, including Home Studios, Agency Representation, Audio Production, and Auditioning for Jobs, just to name a few.
     FaffCon - A self-proclaimed unconference, FaffCon has a requirement that other conferences don’t: you must be a vetted professional to attend. This is actually great news, because the result is one of the largest gatherings of legit voice over professionals. The event is participant-driven and features peer-to-peer learning sessions that provide attendees with an educational experience unlike any other. FaffCon is taking place this year in Minneapolis, August 26-28. 
*  WOVO (World Voices) - A relatively new group of members-only pros who've just begun conferences to share ideas, improve skills and maintain good working standards for the industry.
