Road Presenters/Intra-Industry Committee

Together, the Road Presenters and Intra-Industry Committees comprise a single League standing committee. The committee’s primary functions are to ensure that road presenters, producers, and all other persons, activities, and organizations connected to the Road are well represented in all appropriate League matters; to increase awareness of touring Broadway; and to help foster a more financially solvent environment for League producers. The committee takes a leadership role in developing the Spring Road Conference, develops content for the Winter Road Meeting, and oversees the annual Road Marketing and Group Sales Forums. The committee has established standardized reporting practices for the collection of Road grosses and created a Form Booking Agreement for touring Equity productions.
