12th Annual Conference Chattanooga, TN
May 15-19, 2019

For many years, SERFA held its annual conference at the beautiful Montreat Conference Center in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Due to the success of our growing conference, we will be in Chattanooga, Tennessee in 2019. We're very excited about the new opportunities Chattanooga has to offer our community.

The annual conference spans several days in May, and brings together artists, songwriters, presenters, DJs, and other music industry professionals. Days are filled with informational seminars and workshops, and the evenings are music-filled, with featured performers ("official showcases") followed by late-night shows in intimate settings ("guerrilla showcases").
