This interactive session will feature web experts offering live critiques of musician websites submitted by members of the audience. They’ll look at the design, organization, content, and functionality of the sites. They’ll evaluate how the site fits with the artist’s overall online strategy. Our reviewers are extremely knowledgeable about best practices and deeply allergic to bad design. Reviews will be candid and thorough; don’t come with thin skin! The goal is for everyone to leave the room with tangible information on how to improve their websites.

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.
