Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Mentor Sessions offer 15 minutes of one-on-one interaction with industry leaders and professionals from a variety of fields spanning interactive, film, and music.

Meeting with this mentor is highly recommended if you're interested in startups, management, and financial planning.

Dilini prides herself on being a non-Wall Street Financial Advisor and Board-Certified Financial Planner who really understands the artist-entrepreneur when it comes to planning and money management. She works directly with artists and artist managers to build financial literacy skills and assist with advanced planning, such as Impact Investing and Wealth Protection, which may better align with an artist’s personal beliefs and circumstances.
