The Music Business Association (Music Biz) Conference will remain in Nashville through 2020.
“The Music Biz conference has grown steadily over the three years we have hosted it in Nashville, topping 2,000 attendees last year for the first time since 2001,” said James Donio, President of Music Biz. “The music business sensibility of Nashville and its Music City Music Council aligns so well with our efforts on behalf of music services, stores, labels, artists, songwriters, managers, publishers, entrepreneurs, startups, educators, students, and everyone else in or looking to break into the industry. We’re thrilled to make it our flagship conference’s home base for at least another three years, and look forward to exposing more music companies to Nashville and the many opportunities it provides.”
The previously announced dates for Music Biz 2018 will be May 14-17, 2018 at Omni Hotel Nashville. Future dates include:
May 5-8, 2019 at JW Marriott Nashville (slated to open in July 2018)
May 11-14, 2020 at JW Marriott Nashville
Music Biz was first held in Nashville in 2015 and has grown in attendance since then.
“When people think of music, they think of Nashville, which means there’s no better place for the Music Biz conference than right here in Music City,” said Nashville Mayor Megan Barry. “We are committed to supporting the thriving music industry in Nashville while nurturing its growth by attracting top talent to our city. The Music Biz conference has proven its ability to bring in major executives, not only from the U.S. but also from around the world, to see what we offer and establish or expand their presence here. We could not be more pleased to hear that Music Biz has booked an extended stay.”
“The Music Biz conference has been a benefit for our city, and we’re excited to have them back for the next three years,” said Music City Music Council co-chair Joe Galante. “Music is a global industry, but there’s no city in the world quite like Nashville with its mix of high-level creative and business talent. Having Music Biz here helps us spread that message by bringing in elite new visitors to experience it first-hand. We can’t wait to continue to show Music Biz’s attendees what Music City is all about.”
