Abundance Members Say:

These sessions are very honest and helpful in getting into the licensing industry. I just wanted to personally thank you and let you know without ARTBIZJAM to have seasoned my knowledge of the industry it would be so much more difficult without your guidance.

It’s been suggested to me that my art would be a match for a company and to my surprise you had interviewed the product developer for that company...Shelly Bartek

Success Stories from ArtBizJam

Many of the artists who attended the ArtBizJam conference have wonderful success stories from the contacts they made there.

ArtBizJam Conference 2020

The 8th annual ArtBizJam Conference, will be held in Kansas City, September 29 - October 4.

The conference will start with a tour of a leading giftware company, Demdaco, where we will receive a special presentation on how they work with artists. On the following days, valuable information will be presented by 5 expert guest speakers plus a panel discussion by noted product designers that you can apply to enhance your own business. Artists have had so much success from the conferences each year. That success inspired us to create ArtBizJam Abundance to provide even more content to help you with the business side of art. Here, experienced as well as beginning artists and other creatives, can find all they need to build and expand a successful and profitable business.

Working with Product Developers

Working with product developers for major companies, as guest speakers for ArtBizJam Conference and through our own businesses, has generated a wealth of information on how to be successful in creating and designing products. ArtBizJam Abundance will continue to provide information from product developers and other experts through video interviews.
