What we're about
Where ideas meet influence. We are showcasing the most interesting and perhaps the most under publicized people, companies and stories in the music industry. The format will mirror the New York Tech Meetup - select speakers, each giving 10 minute presentations on a wide array of topics including technology, digital rights, gadgets, touring, publishing, song-writing, production, recording, artist management, business management, etc. The presenters will represent expertise from the broad spectrum of subjects impacting the business of music. Think “Shark Tank” meets Ted Talks meets speed dating. If done correctly, this will be the most compelling hour of music industry content available in any forum.
Also, this forum will be THE place to come if anyone is interested in talking to the Nashville Music industry and where the Nashville Music Industry will communicate the dynamics of today’s marketplace and makes the Nashville music community so unique.
The impact we intend for attendees to walk away with is “who knew we have so much cool stuff going on in this town right now…”
The benefits of fulfilling these objectives are clear. First, there are extremely talented people fueling emerging developments and many business opportunities rising within our local music industry. Bringing together all these creative minds will collectively elevate the visibility of these new ventures and allow entrepreneurs and participants to network, collaborate and ultimately enhance their offerings. Second, the Nashville Music Industry is a mystery to industry executives who live elsewhere such as LA or NYC. By opening our doors and showcasing what is going on here and helping people understand how things get done here, we will enhance opportunities for all concerned. In short, we want to showcase and celebrate all aspects of our vibrant music community and create opportunities for growth for all involved.
