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. .

The conference also features panels such including "Hindsight is 20/20", a gathering of the leaders of the early digital music companies. The panel will check-in on their thoughts on the present state of the industry based on the early possibilities they saw and challenges they encountered. Music startups in the current economic climate and industrial landscape will be examined in the "Steel Balls" panel, and the future of the industry will be addressed in the wide-ranging discussion of the conference closer, "The Crystal Ball" panel.
