San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2009
The Bandwidth Music | Technology Conference, an annual gathering of music/media executives and digital music professionals, takes place on August 27 and 28, 2009 in San Francisco. Bandwidth explores the evolving musical experience -- how people discover, purchase, interact with, and are exposed to new music -- with a focus on marketing, fan behavior, current trends, and future forecasts.
Featured at this year's conference will be a conversation with Cory Ondrejka, Executive Vice President, Digital Marketing for EMI. In this role, Ondrejka is advancing the company's digital marketing capabilities, developing new consumer and market insight resources and leading EMI's experimentation with new digital marketing and product models in order to provide the best service to its artists and their fans.
Ondrejka was formerly EMI's Senior Vice President, Digital Strategy. Since joining the company in 2008, he has helped create and implement a new digital strategy including assembling a world-class engineering team to build a solid infrastructure in San Francisco, instituting agile, forward-thinking software tools and development practices to transform EMI's approach to analytics.
Prior to EMI, Ondrejka was the co-founder of Linden Lab, where he led the development of the virtual world Second Life. In addition to developing the core code and building the company from 4 to 250 people, Ondrejka drove multiple initiatives that generated enormous value from user participation, creation, and collaboration. The ecosystems he helped create led directly to the success of Second Life, as well as the ongoing use of Second Life as a platform for music, education, and business. Before Linden Lab, Ondrejka travelled an eclectic path from the U.S. Naval Academy and nuclear power to defense contracting and video game development.
Cory Ondrejka joins previously announced keynote speakers Livia Tortella, GM/Executive VP of Marketing and Creative Media at Atlantic Records, and Jeff Price, founder and CEO of TuneCore.
Bandwidth Conference 2009 will feature prominent trailblazers from various segments of the music industry. Each speaker will provide a unique perspective on the current state of the industry and identify the key opportunities and challenges for today's music, media, and tech professionals.
