Each year SPRA presents an entertainment showcase. The showcase includes a variety of performing acts such as bands, solo singers, magicians, variety acts, and more for professionals looking for entertainment. An exhibit hall is also part of the event. At the exhibit hall, vendors will have promotional materials on hand and will be able to answer specific questions about their act to see if it is right for your event/venue.
