The NAMM Show. On January 26th, at the Anaheim Convention Center, from 2:30pm-3:30pm PST, I will host an exciting panel of experts for The NAMM Show, ”Bands Inc – Running Your Band as a Business (and as a Brand).”
At a time when digital distribution is the tail that wags the dog, it’s critical for artists and bands to see themselves as a branded business. They must be more responsible than ever to build a strong team around them, to embrace working with consumer brands to increase exposure and find funding, and to engage more actively in social media and D2F (direct to fan) initiatives.
*It’s worth noting that my Amazon #1 Bestseller, “Taking The Crowd to the Cloud – Social Media for the Music Industry,” will be re-released with new and updated info. With social platforms changing almost daily, anyone and everyone in the music space MUST be armed with step-by-step how-to and cutting-edge info.
The show runs through the 27th, and in addition to all of the new products and tech being unveiled at NAMM, there are great professional development sessions and unique product pavilions to explore. Year after year, NAMM keeps attendees on the cutting edge of business trends and new tech, and it’s a privilege to be a presenter there again. Join me on Saturday 1/26 and hear from some of the key players in the ecosystem who enable and inspire bands to thrive, as the industry continues to reinvent itself.
