Music Conference Expectations

We have to raise the bar and expectations at music conferences if we are all to benefit from them. At a minimum, music conference organizers should provide the following:
  • Notepads
  • Ink pens
  • Adequate Lighting: When a music conference is held at a nightclub the lights should be turned on during any panel discussion. This ensures attendees have proper lighting to take fantastic notes. It also ensures the speakers can see the audience.
  • Networking Opportunity: It has been my experience that many attendees are not familiar with networking techniques. Music conference organizers may put basic points on how to network at a music conference on their website, myspace page and printed material at the conference. For networking techniques download the Truth Ebook. Also, organizers should encourage attendees to network with each other before and after panels and workshops or held.
While music conferences have an opportunity to encourage a greater level of professionalism at their event, it is ultimately up to the individual to ensure they are prepared to learn about the music business and network. Attendees should do the following:
  • Bring a Notepad
  • Bring Ink Pens
  • Bring a Video Camera

  • Prepare for Millions -Every situation is a multi-million dollar deal! When you mentally approach a music conference, panel discussion or workshop in this fashion you dramatically increase your professionalism and chances for success. How would you prepare for a music conference if you knew you were going to get a million dollar check? How would you think, plan, execute? How would you dress, talk and walk? Would you be early, on-time or late?
