12:16 AM - 12:17 AM South Beach Sessions- Music as a Means of Marketing and Setting Trends

Music, its artists and message permeate all aspects of modern culture from social undertones to politics and fashion. Partnerships between artists and products push the influence of cultural icons to an ever-greater reach thus contributing to and in many cases eclipsing; perhaps even circumventing, all traditional notions of what we call ‘artist development’. We will cover various levels of sponsorship / partnership for your events, artist product endorsements and the cross pollination between Music, Fashion, Film, Television, and so much more... Is music riding a corporate wave to success or vice versa? Anyway you look at it, the synergy works. From the drawing room to your living room this is an inside glimpse from the experts who bring the ideas! Preferred admission for badgeholders. Space is limited so please arrive at least ten minutes before start time to guarantee admission.
