Join us in New Orleans this week, May 24-27, 2017!
Nicknamed the “Big Easy,” New Orleans is known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene, and exceptional cuisine. A melting pot of French, African, and American cultures, it is one of the country’s most culturally and historically-rich cities. Its beauty, mystery and continuous regeneration is the perfect backdrop and inspiration for SNAG’s 46th conference, “Nexus: A Connection of Ideas.”
“Nexus: A Connection of Ideas” will focus on motivating thinkers, collectors, and makers to bring new and old, materials, techniques, and ideas together in a true New Orleans celebration.
