What: The GameChangers seminar series was inaugurated with a sold-out 2014 seminar in Singapore, with the aim of empowering artists, creatives, and managers with the tools necessary to take control of their own careers, in today’s rapidly-evolving global music industry landscape. Unlike other seminars, attendees will have the unique opportunity to interact extensively with panelists in a very intimate setting. Through talks, panel discussions, and hands-on demo feedback sessions, participants will learn:
• How to make their music irresistible to any market
• How to get their music heard
• And how to develop the international relationships that matter
When: May 6-7 (Wed-Thu), 10am-6pm. Tickets at $35 from gamechangersmusic.com(including one meal per day)
Where: The seminar will take place at the Gibson Brands Showroom – 9350 Civic Center Dr, Beverly Hills, California 90210.
Why: The music industry is undergoing a huge shift – powerful new opportunities are emerging in markets like Asia and Latin America, while declining sales continue to force the existing business model to evolve. In this challenging environment, a successful music industry personality has to not only master their core skill set, but also be savvy in navigating the world of public and corporate relations, branding, marketing and promotion, and be able to deliver compelling content to multiple world markets simultaneously. The GameChangers seminar series aims to be a key part of this movement, in helping attendees to position themselves for maximum success across all world markets.
