different Seminars done by experts in their specialty; something you

and publishers is priceless!”
This convention will host many
panels and seminars covering topics of Digital and Physical
Distribution, Publishing, A&R, Songwriting, Management, Marketing
& Sales, Gaming and Licensing. She adds, “The goal of these
seminars is to take a new look at the views and opportunities in
