After four years in Los Angeles, the Music Business Association‘s (Music Biz) annual convention is moving to Nashville for the first time.
Music Biz 2015 will be held at the Sheraton Nashville Downtown Hotel from May 12-14, 2015. Music Biz president James Donio made the announcement in his speech Wednesday (May 7) at the Opening Breakfast of Music Biz 2014.
“Los Angeles has been an amazing host for the last four installments of our annual convention, but now, it is time for us to reach out to another of America’s most storied musical cities,” Donio said. “Home to major musical landmarks such as the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the Ryman Auditorium, and Music Row, Nashville is the home base for the Country, Gospel, and Contemporary Christian music industries as well as a hotbed of talent for artists of any genre. We look forward to tapping into Nashville’s unique musical culture and bringing Music Biz to a whole new community of artists, executives, and fans.”
Music Biz, then known as NARM, began hosting their annual convention in Los Angeles at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in 2011. In 2012, the event was rechristened Music Biz, and in 2014, the association held its first convention since re-branding as the Music Business Association.
