“THE SAME OLD IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH! MUSIC IS EVERYWHERE AND SO ARE THE REVENUE STREAMS” NINA K. EASTON, CO-FOUNDER OF ICHIBAN RECORDS HOSTS THE 2009 ATLANTA MUSIC CONVENTION AT THE GEORGIA WORLD CONGRESS CENTER AUG 29TH & 30TH
Come join over 2000 industry professionals including Music Executives, Artists, Radio Personalities, Producers, A&R Representatives, Video Producers, Booking Agents and many more.
ATLANTA –On August 29th & 30th 2009, Nina K. Easton, President/CEO of many entertainment companies and Co-Founder of the hit machine Ichiban Records will host the Atlanta Music Convention (www.atlantamusicconvention.com) at the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta.
“The goal of this convention is to finally have a forum where Industry Specialists and Innovators give real information, contacts, explanations and ideas in 7 different Seminars done by experts in their specialty; something you can actually use”, says Easton. “Having an opportunity to network and being able to get ‘One on One’ time to show your talent in front of decision makers’ be it movie supervisors, label representatives, gaming and publishers is priceless!”
Unlike most conventions that have many panels, this convention will have seminars covering topics of Digital and Physical Distribution, Publishing, A&R, Songwriting, Management, Marketing & Sales, Gaming and Licensing. She adds, “The goal of these seminars is to take a new look at the views and opportunities in today’s music industry and identify all the different options available, instead of using the traditional process, like selling a CD or sell a track on Itunes. We feel that it will be some time before physical sales are totally gone but there are more alternatives than ever!”
Nina continues, “Gaming is one of the fastest growing forms of entertainment and it has created many successful records by unknown artists. This is why we are bringing a gaming/ media room to this year’s convention, allowing an interactive experience of trying different games and consoles as well as having a representative explain the process of music placement in video games.”
Sponsors for this year’s convention include T-Mobile, Monster Energy Drink, ITunes, IMG International INC., Jive Records, MDI Distribution, INC., So-So Def Records, 404 Music, Computer Arena, Kivi Marketing, 822 Artist Management, Soundcheck INC. and many more!
More than ever before music is wrapped around everything. Someone makes that music. The Atlanta Music Convention is the best way for all aspiring participants to improve their careers, regardless of Genres. Independents are in a very good position to go forward in this ever changing world.
