Metadata Summit – Nashville 5.12.15

You’ll receive a progress report on common metadata issues and hear from the major organizations and database companies working on resolving these issues.

Artists, Management & Touring Town Hall – Nashville 5.12.15

Music Biz’s Artists, Management & Touring Sector was launched last year during the annual convention and has been working through the year to increase dialogue between the artist/management and commerce communities while also providing educational opportunities that focus on topics critical to the future health and development of artists and the music business as a whole. The group has come together to plan and present its first Artists, Management & Touring Town Hall, showcasing topics that they hope will spark conversation among attendees and send everyone back to their offices with new insights.

Metadata For Artists – Nashville 5.13.15

Metadata. It’s a jargon-y word that probably turns a lot of artists off at the mere mention of it. It’s also one of the main things standing between them and a variety of new opportunities to make money. And those new opportunities are becoming increasingly important for cash-strapped musicians. Join our panelists to discuss the essentials that artists need to know about metadata, in addition to more forward-thinking areas of how metadata will be a catalyst in building the products  of the future.
