Dear Colleagues & Friends :
The Billboard Hollywood Reporter Film and TV Music Conference is expanding. 

The 13th edition of the conference is moving to a larger space, the Globe Theatre on the Universal Studios lot in Universal City. Calif., after two sold-out years at the W Hotel in Hollywood. The event will be held Nov. 5 and 6.

The move affords the Billboard and Hollywood Reporter team with more space for presentations, networking opportunities and an increased number of one-on-ones amid the atmosphere of a working studio. The move gives us a significant number of options as we look to expand the programming and ancillary offerings. 

Dedicated to all facets of music and its uses in television, film, advertising and the Internet, the Film and TV Music Conference brings together recording artists, composers, executives from all branches of entertainment, music supervisors, publishers, filmmakers, managers and others to discuss the ever-changing entertainment landscape and the opportunities for content creators and copyright holders.

Speakers are a mix of the industry’s elite, up-and-coming entrepreneurs and the creative community. Besides keynote speeches, case studies, panels and networking opportunities, the two-day event offers one-on-one sessions with publishers, song representatives and experts from throughout the film, TV and music industries.

Please join us as we explore the ever-changing world of music in visual media with the people making a difference in music today.
