Dear Friends,

W E LCO M E TO

IMMERSE 2019 Dear Friends, A great experience has been prepared for you. Speakers, artists, mentors, and exhibitors were carefully selected to make these days meaningful and helpful in your creative life. Also, the seats around you are filled with new friends and collaborators. Meet people, learn about their experiences and ministries, and find ways you can share resources and support with each other. We’re so glad you’ve stepped out in faith to be part of this week. We have prayed for you and we look forward to this time together!

Welcome to IMMERSE! you’re here.

We are so glad

Thanks to the passionate GMA staff and a host of committed volunteers, the way has been paved for you to have a life-changing experience this week. Through prayer and planning, we have set a Christ-centered atmosphere for you to explore new ideas, develop your talent and refine your vision. I encourage you to share your stories and desires with each other; ask lots of questions and enjoy the diverse styles around you. Christian music is the only genre defined by its message, not its sound. That said, IMMERSE is an incubator where creativity, innovation, and collaboration can thrive. So... Go for it! Don’t hold back, let your walls down, allow yourself to be inspired. I’m excited to be part of what God is doing in and through you. All the best,

JAYME THOMPSON WellHouse Entertainment; Chairwoman, IMMERSE 2019; Board of Directors, Gospel Music Association

JACKIE PATILLO President & Executive Director, Gospel Music Association

EVENT INFO

WHEN DO I NEED TO WEAR MY NAME BADGE?

All day, every day. Your badge allows you to get into the sessions, competitions, and evening concerts. OOPS - I LOST MY NAME BADGE. WHAT DO I DO?

Stop by the main customer service desk and the kind folks will replace your lost badge. Cost for replacement is $25. HOW WILL I KNOW IF A CLASS OR SPEAKER CHANGES?

Change happens. So if a location or teacher gets revised, an announcement will be made during the morning general session. You can also check the schedule at http://www.experienceimmerse.com/schedule I HAVE A REQUEST AND NEED TO TALK TO A GMA REP. HOW DO I FIND THEM?

The GMA staff is always happy to help answer any questions you may have. Stop by the main customer service desk and they will do their best to touch base with a staff member. I’D LIKE TO PURCHASE ADDITIONAL TICKETS TO THE EVENT CONCERTS. HOW DO I DO THAT?

Tickets for open seats can be purchased at the customer service desk.

REMINDER: Standing in line is not normally pleasant. Please do not cut in or save positions for friends in concert or session lines. We appreciate your consideration of others.
