Dear Concert Industry Professionals:
The Billboard Touring Conference & Awards will celebrate its 10th Anniversary on November 13-14, 2013 at the Roosevelt Hotel. It is rare for many industry events to make it to year two, which is why we are so grateful for your support in reaching this milestone. Your feedback has encouraged us to bring you exactly what you are looking for: the best content in the live business, a unique program that is geared to inform and educate, and of course, keep you up to speed on everything you need to know in order to succeed in the challenging but thriving business.
We have enhanced our programming and recruited speakers who are the best in their respective fields. Our partnership with the Roosevelt Hotel in NYC provides networking opportunities for all touring related businesses. I know it to be true that conversations and introductions in the hallways, bars and lobbies of the Roosevelt have directly led to epic performances, fruitful collaborations, and innovative strategic alliances. We are proud to provide a platform to bring this all to life.
If you have attended in the past, you are well aware that the Billboard Touring Conference has become known for hosting attendees and speakers that are the elite industry players, including established concert industry executives, up-and-coming entrepreneurs, and influential decision makers. The conference is a fertile ground for the growth and exchange of new ideas. The content and networking at the Touring Conference are laser-focused on ways to build careers, sell more tickets, create rewarding partnerships, and stay ahead of the curve in the most vital sector of the music business. As always, programming is continually upgraded and customized to fit the needs of concert business stakeholders today.
Most importantly, our programming will not only tell you what happened in ways you can use, but will also tell you what is going to happen, and that will be more true than ever as we move into our next decade serving the touring industry.
Please celebrate and help us move the industry forward at the 2013 Billboard Touring Conference. We promise to deliver informative keynote interviews, captivating sessions on hot button issues, networking cocktail parties and showcases, plus our grand finale, the Billboard Touring Awards—honoring the industry’s top artists, professionals and venues of the year. We are confident that this will be one of the most rewarding and memorable evenings of the year for this dynamic business. In addition to honoring box office achievement, Billboard also presents its prestigious Legend of Live Award, Humanitarian Award and Concert Marketing & Promotion Award. Touring industry success for the next decade begins at the 10th Annual Billboard Touring Conference & Awards, Nov. 13 in NYC!
See you there!
