Today’s music managers are faced with unique challenges. They are not only managing the careers of their artists but also, often times, playing the role of the CEO of a music industry business. Women in Music, in partnership with the Music Mangers Forum US, is proud to present this panel of expert music managers who will address the role a manager plays in today’s industry, strategies that work, strategies that don’t work, anecdotes to inspire and teach us, the economics of being an artist manager, latest issues that are challenging music managers as well as their artists, and much more. Whether you are interested in a career as a music manager, are a music manager looking to learn from your peers, or are in any other part of the industry and want to gain a better knowledge of the landscape we work within, join us for what will most definitely be a very rewarding and interesting evening!
