SMPS SRC On-Site Guide/Program
Are you looking for inspiration and creativeness in your career? Let Tulsa be your muse in 2014 at the SMPS Southern Regional Conference!
With more than 30 lakes and reservoirs in the region as its backdrop, Tulsa hugs a bend in the Arkansas River and is home to one of the largest concentrations of art deco architecture in the United States. The Art Deco architectural style has been described as assertively modern with sophistication and elegance. It is the inspiration behind the conference theme – The Art of Deco Marketing.
At the center of the country Tulsa is a crossroads for art and music from all parts of the country. These influences are expressed through the local museums, performing arts venues, festivals, parks, and wildlife preserves. From the fine arts of Philbrook Museum to the world’s largest collection of art and artifacts of the American West at Gilcrease Museum, inspiration is easy to find.
The Tulsa Sound and Red Dirt music styles were born out of this region representing a unique mix of blues, rock, country, soul and folk music. It is home to the Woody Guthrie Center, home to the archives of one of America’s greatest folksingers and most influential songwriters – Woody Guthrie. With venues like Cain’s Ballroom, Brady Theater, and BOK Center there is always something happening in T-town that is hard to resist. Dozens of local club venues play host to the flourishing local music scene including musicians of the New Tulsa Sound.
Come to Tulsa. The SRC’s quality programming will teach you marketing techniques, and the art and music will inspire you to take that knowledge and create a new blend of marketing for your firm.
