BREAKING: ASCAP Cancels Los Angeles Conference

ASCAP has canceled its ASCAP Experience conference, which was set for April 1-3, 2020 in Los Angeles, due to concerns over COVID-19, the coronavirus.

“ASCAP is committed to the health and safety of each attendee, participant, performer, partner, and employee who comes through the doors to each of our events, including the 2020 ASCAP Experience. Out of consideration for the health and safety of our employees, our members and all other participants, and due to rising concerns about the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the determination was made to cancel the 2020 ASCAP Experience,” the organization said in a statement on Monday (March 9).

The organization noted that there are no known cases of COVID-19 among the ASCAP team, and that the determination was made out of caution. ASCAP’s team is currently considering other options “to bring the community together in lieu of this year’s canceled event…We certainly look forward to reconvening in 2021.”

Registered attendees will be eligible for a full registration refund.

The annual event hosts songwriters, publishers and music makers of all genres, to discuss impactful issues in songwriting, music promotion, scoring for film and television, synch licensing, growing fanbases, wellness and more.

Among the artists and songwriters that were slated to take part in the event were Desmond Child, Jason Mraz, Dan Wilson, Darrell Brown, Brett James, and more.
