Karaoke Industry Leaders Meet Today (6/22) in Nashville

The Karaoke Cloud Music City Summit 2012 – The End Of The Age Of Plastic meets today (6/20) at the Hilton Nashville Downtown. The event will mark the first time that all of the major industry names will gather together to discuss the state of the industry, innovations in technology and delivery, and battling piracy.

“Much like the broader music industry, the karaoke world has undergone a sea change in recent years,” said Joe Vangieri, CEO of Digitrax Entertainment, LLC, which is hosting the event. “Changes in the way that end users and industry professionals use and interact with our products are telling us that we must evolve in order to remain viable and relevant. Most people are not aware that the karaoke industry in the United States has been on the verge of imploding. We come together to find common cause against the challenges we all face, so that high-quality karaoke music won’t vanish completely.”
