Mid-Atlantic Voiceover, LLC strives to offer unique, interactive, educational & networking opportunities to voice actors in the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond. These events are offered in-person and/or online, depending on the situation.
There are many voice-over conferences that exist around the United States - but ours will always have a unique twist that sets it apart from the rest. MAVO is unique in that we keep the size of our conference on the smaller side on purpose. We want each attendee to have an experience where they get to work in a more hands-on setting with each guest speaker during the break-out and mastery sessions. Due to the smaller size of the event, we are able to control the size of our sessions so that they don't get overwhelming! There is usually very little or no line after a session to talk with a guest speaker and there are numerous occasions during the event where attendees can ask questions to the guest speakers. It's very much a family type atmosphere!
The main objective of our events is to help you to GET INSPIRED!! The performers and speakers for each event will be chosen due to their outstanding talents and capabilities to INSPIRE their audience! We hope that you will walk away from each event with new contacts/friends that share your love of voice-over; with new knowledge about this competitive field, and with strategies to help you towards continued success in this rapidly changing industry.
