“The U.S. music business is flat at around $7 billion. This year’s New Music Seminar will discuss strategies to get it back to $14 billion and beyond,” explained Tom Silverman, NMS Founder and Executive Director. “Our Movements are filled with the CEO’s, Presidents and founders of new businesses that promise to deliver new revenues that will take us there. It is time for our business to stop being the disrupted and become the disruptor.”
New Music Seminar brings together key music, technology, radio, venture capital, advertising agency, brand executives, artists, managers, producers, songwriters, booking agents, venues, and promoters. The event will offer high-level industry keynotes, discussions “Movements,” NMS 18-minute Intensives, workshops, closed-door meetings and networking opportunities.
The New Music Seminar’s mission is to create a music business in which talent can rise to its highest potential based solely on its merit, without regard to its financial resources or connections. To help artists and their representatives achieve success. To create a new economic model that better rewards both artists, their investors and those in artist services.
