PANNZ Arts Market

Tuesday 6 March - Thursday 8 March 2018
WELLINGTON, Macs Function Centre

Join us at PANNZ Arts Market and meet hundreds of local and international arts professionals. Discover what’s up and coming in New Zealand performing arts alongside emerging and established artists and producers, industry leaders and presenters from venues, festivals and touring agencies.

The PANNZ Arts Market is the only event of its kind in New Zealand. Since launching in 1999, it has become a vital forum for promoting original New Zealand work and knowledge-sharing across the industry. PANNZ Chair, James Wilson said that he hopes the event "raises the cultural capital of Aotearoa" as it aims to "nurture, develop and support new voices and new ideas, and create opportunities for those voices to reach audiences right across the country."

Applications to pitch at PANNZ Arts Market 2018 are now closed. Those interested in pitching in the future are encouraged to come along as delegates. Get to know the presenters and gather advice and ideas!


Delegate registrations open Tuesday 31 October through National Touring Selector. If you don’t already have one from a previous year, you can start to set up your profile now.

Pitching fees are due on 20 November and do not include attendance at the PANNZ Arts Market outside of your pitching slot. Each person attending the Market will also need to register as a delegate.

Pitching Workshops

We offer all successful applicants, the opportunity to attend a 'Pitching Workshop' (for a small fee). This ensures that you are able to present your show in the best way to presenters and buyers.

We highly recommend you do the pitching workshop, even if you have pitched before - you will receive invaluable feedback.
