Getting a Solid Return on your Investment: Prepping, Attending & Following Up for World of Bluegrass 2011
The intense schedule and after hours music at music industry conferences like IBMA’s World of Bluegrass can be overwhelming for some attendees. There can be so much going on that, if you’re not careful, the week will slip by, and you’ll have missed that session that would’ve been helpful to your career, or missed the opportunity to connect with someone in the media or an event producer or a label rep that you’d really hoped to run into.
Here’s an invitation to join IBMA’s 12th July webinar (from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Central), to be hosted by IBMA’s Dan Hays and Henri Deschamps from The Mast Farm Inn and Facebook’s Bluegrass Legacy. This is an opportunity to pick up some ideas on how to start planning the best use of your World of Bluegrass time now. The session will take a careful look at the schedule, make recommendations for what would benefit you individually, and also cover about advance contacts and promotion.
This webinar is great for: artists and band managers, event producers, merchandisers, broadcasters, songwriters. Anyone on a mission to maximize his or her investment in attending World of Bluegrass or a similar music industry conference. The fee is US$40 for IBMA members or US$50 for non-members.
You can register now by calling 615-256-3222.
Karen Abernathy, with KGB Management in Tulsa (Rockin’ Acoustic Circus), had this to say about our May 2011 webinar on Media Training: “The webinars are a great way to not only gain new knowledge on a particular subject, but to network with peers who have ideas to share as well. I particularly like the ‘follow along’ correspondence during the webinar between participants. The speaker was not interrupted, and it allowed for a smooth flow of the presentation.”
