Women In Music is excited to partner with Music Biz 2017 — the industry's premier convention hosted by the Music Business Association.
Music Biz 2017 is set to bring together 1,500+ music industry professionals from across the country from Monday, May 15 to Thursday, May 18 in Nashville at the Renaissance hotel.
We'll be hosting a Women In Music mixer during the convention at 7PM on Tuesday, May 16, so stay tuned for more info!
The "four most important days on the industry calendar" will include 100+ panels, live music showcases; workshops with Apple, Amazon, Google/YouTube, SoundCloud, Spotify, and Pandora; meetups; mixers; awards honoringAdele, Maren Morris, Paula Abdul& more; a keynote from Spotify's Troy Carter, and...Music's Leading Ladies Speak Outpowered by Nielsen .
Headlined by a keynote interview with Atlantic Records' Julie Greenwald carried out by Ann Powers of NPR Music, this event will take on the theme of “Creative Partnerships” and will feature stories of how Greenwald's keen and often maternal instincts have helped her to uniquely nurture the careers of major artists such as Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Christina Perri, Janelle Monáe, Twenty One Pilots, Sturgill Simpson, Coldplay, and more. The conversation will also illuminate how she achieved her success in a male-dominated business, as well as her views and approach on the many issues around work/life balance. A featured panel of female executive will then tell their stories as a women in the music industry and talk about work life balance, bridging confidence gaps, and facilitating greater gender equality in the future. Women In Music's own Erin Crawford of Nielsen will act as the event's emcee. Way to go!
