Whether you’re a booking agent, manager, label executive or an artist, the Billboard Touring Conference & Awards is a must attend if you’re looking to step your game up, network and maximize your earning potential with live events.
This year the conference moves out west and will be held the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA on November 9th and 10th. As stated on Billboard.com, “After 12 successful years, including three consecutive sellouts, in New York, we felt now was the right time to try our event on the West Coast,” says Ray Waddell, Billboard’s executive director of content and programming for touring and live entertainment, who has programmed every Billboard Touring Conference.
“Given the large number of agents, managers, label executives, artists, promoters and others associated with live entertainment, and the music business at large, located in and around Los Angeles, as well as the venue managers and touring-related executives in the Western half of the U.S., we know we will be able to program a timely, informative and fun event. We’re thrilled about ’taking the best West., and this year we’re confident we will take on the most issues of the music industry for today and tomorrow.”
