Juried Showcases

Juried Showcases are 15-minute performances and are designed to give presenters a sense of the artists’ work as the audience would experience it. Showcases represent artists with a variety of fee ranges, technical needs and genres. Over the course of two nights, PAE will host performances of up to 16 artist showcases, chosen by a panel of experts. Note that all artists must be represented in a booth in the Marketplace in order to showcase.

Juried Showcases will be held on Tuesday, October 2, and Wednesday, October 4, at the Caribe Royale Orlando.
