There has been a long tradition of successful Urban Network Music Conferences since the late 80s, throughout the 90s and for the entire first decade of the 2000s. “In the midst of so many changes that have occurred since our last conference (2009), we decided to theme this year’s Summit, ‘Back to Basics,’ says David Mitchell, Amalgamation Mag Publisher. “We have more than a dozen seminar panel sessions, discussing topics such as digital strategies, navigating social media, alternative music brands, and licensing one’s music for TV, Film and Digital platforms. We’re also going to host 90 minute-long panel discussions on the States of Hip-Hop, Gospel Music, and Today’s R&B, along with forums for mix show DJs, indie labels and artists, A&R development, production/songwriting, and radio programming.”
At the center of the Summit are many Panelists and Participants from around the industry who have signed on to share their wealth of knowledge and expertise. These high-ranking executives come from companies like: Universal Music Group, InGrooves Distribution, Capitol Records, Warner Music Group, ASCAP, BMI, Royalty Exchange, Lyric Financial, SESAC, SonyATV Music Publishing, Beats Music, Motown Gospel, the Recording Academy©, AEG/Live, Launch Yahoo, Fresh Wire, USB.com, Roc Nation Music, Notting Hill Music Group, the Urban Buzz, Black Entertainment Television (BET), with more panelists, participants and sponsors forthcoming.
“Over and over, we've heard the industry clamoring for the Summit to return,” says Arthur Mitchell, President of Urban Network Digital. “Many of you may remember the days when conferences like BRE, Impact, and Jack the Rapper along with Urban Network were annual must-attend events. They were all important platforms. Urban music industry professionals more than ever need a serious venue beyond just social media to directly network, and discuss important issues. That’s the void Urban Network Digital & Amalgamation Mag are committed to fulfill.”
