The Music Business Association (Music Biz) invites industry professionals like you to share your knowledge and business expertise by submitting program ideas for Music Biz 2018 to be held Monday, May 14, through Thursday, May 17, at the Omni Nashville Hotel.
If you are a music industry thought leader and have a program topic that will inform the overall growth of the music business; showcase new ways to enhance the monetization of music; demonstration best practices; offer actionable consumer intelligence and analysis; promote the value of music for all commerce models; help advance the artist/fan connection; or delve into the technology that underscores today’s music business, we encourage you to submit your ideas today!
Music Biz’s program is built to both challenge and inspire everyone engaged in the business of music, and provide deep-dive presentations and conversations for the following industry players: commercial businesses (streaming subscription services, physical stores, etc.); major and independent labels and distributors; internet radio services; aggregators; mobile service and hardware providers; data providers; information technology companies; startups; artists; songwriters; publishers; managers; agents; touring professionals; educators; students; lawyers; and more.
While being innovative with your topic and approach is encouraged, consider the following topics submitted by Music Biz members and past attendees as prime areas of interest for the 2018 program:
All topics should present a balanced perspective, with representatives from the commerce, content and creative communities being given the chance to weigh-in on the discussion.
NO sales pitch-oriented presentations will be considered.
In an effort to provide attendees with intermediate- and advanced-level discussions about today’s hottest topics in the condensed time frames that are available during the event, presentation, case study or conversation/interview formats are encouraged. Those sessions that lend themselves best to a panel format should be limited to no more than a moderator and three (3) panelists.
Submissions will be considered based on overall quality, focus and innovation; relevance to
the issues facing the music and entertainment industry; sound research and theoretical basis
(if applicable); practical implications to the Music Biz audience; and experience and reputation of proposed speakers.
Parties interested in submitting a program proposal should consider the following guidelines:
Those wanting to submit a speaker for consideration rather than a panel or presentation idea, please email Nicole Hennessey at email@example.com
