The VenuesNow Conference and Pollstar Live!, including Production Live! are set to take place at the Beverly Hilton in L.A. June 14-17, 2021 for Live Week: Reviving Live!, a week of in-person meetings and events marking the return of the global live entertainment industry. Live Week: Reviving Live! will be focused not only on a healthy return for all aspects of the sports and live entertainment industry, but also an honest look at how to help the industry be better from cultural, socially, and environmentally-conscious outlooks.
Influencers from the live entertainment, production, and venue industry already confirmed to participate in Live Week: Reviving Live! are Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino, Oak View Group CEO Tim Leiweke, Red Light Management founder Coran Capshaw, CAA’s Music Division Head Rob Light, NIVA/First Avenue Productions President/CEO Dayna Frank, DayGlo Productions founder Peter Shapiro, Bandit Lites CEO Michael Strickland, Women Nation President Ali Harnell, TD Garden President Amy Latimer, CEO of Cleveland Cavaliers/Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse Len Komoroski, entertainment attorney Berkeley Reinhold, and Roadies Of Color United co-founders Bill Reeves, KC Jackson and Dave “5-1” Norman. Schedules for all three events, as well as additional speakers, will be announced in the coming weeks.
In addition to VenuesNow Conference, Pollstar Live!, and Production Live!, Live Week: Reviving Live! will include the first ever Live Entertainment Job Fair, and a Celebration of Live Music: The 2021 Pollstar Awards. All conferences will include panels, keynotes, a trade show, and multiple networking opportunities, all laser-focused on helping the industry prepare for the return of sports and live entertainment in what most observers believe will be the busiest time in the history of our industry.
The joining of the VenuesNow Conference, the highly respected symposium for professionals in the sports and live entertainment venue industry, and Pollstar Live!, the world’s largest gathering for the live entertainment industry, will run consecutively, creating a massive epicenter for the business of live events. Bridging these two conferences will be Production Live!, a conference for professionals in producing and transporting live events.
“Our goal once again is to bring together the most powerful thinkers and innovators in sports and live entertainment to collectively take stock of the challenges we face and how we can move the business forward, and this sort of leadership and collaboration has never been more important than in 2021,” said Oak View Group CEO Tim Leiweke. “We believe it is critical to bring the industry together as we ramp up for the return of the live business, and we look forward to seeing everyone in Los Angeles for Live Week: Reviving Live! in June!”
