This popular annual panel will offer indie musicians, publishers and serious fans inside knowledge on what makes the music industry tick; especially how it’s changed and what to expect in light of digital progress. In addition to straight business talk, we’ll add some career coaching/marketing speak to our discussion. Covered topics will include information for: the touring artist, singer-songwriter, self-publishers and those interested in international business deals. What should I be doing to promote myself? What options are available to me - the artist?

VIEW PANELS FROM HOME OR AT THE HUTTON: Live streaming will be available for Select panel sessions located in Palmer Plaza Main Hall and Palmer Plaza Room 300. Popular panels from these rooms will be available for viewing in our Live Streaming room located in the Hutton Hotel. You may also watch them from your laptop, iPad, or smartphone.
