Wednesday, March 13th 2019, check out Now What??: A Roundtable Discussion for the new Music Industry.
The evening is an opportunity to promote cross-pollination between members of all facets of the music industry. This means not only artists, but also anyone who supports them in business. Come have a drink, make friends and join in an open conversation about dreams, goals and the work that goes into making those a reality. Please play a part and invite friends and colleagues who work across platforms. From artists, dancers, film makers, entertainment lawyers to social media experts, the more diverse the crowd, the more potential there is for learning something new and finding new collaborators!
After our conversation, join us for the afterparty at Beverly's NYC from 10PM - 1AM!
This session, we are so excited to announce our amazing special guests!
