For Immediate Release




“It’s more than just a Music Conference… It’s where Music Business gets done!”

June 9-11, 2013 New York City’s New Yorker Hotel

(New York, NY)- The revolution continues. The New Music Seminar (NMS) is back in New York City this June 9-11, announcing a new format, a new venue and more new business to be made.

Taking place at the New Yorker Hotel in Midtown Manhattan, NMS founder Tom Silverman will be joined by PepsiCo’s Global CMO- Consumer Engagement, Frank Cooper III; Clear Channel Entertainment Enterprises’ President, John Sykes; VEVO’s President and CEO, Rio Caraeff; Virgin Records’ CCO, Ron Fair; SoundExchange’s President, Michael J. Huppe; Atlantic Records’ Chairman and CEO, Craig Kallman, and many more.

Throughout the three-day conference, over 150 of the most important leaders in music and entertainment will convene to share, discuss and cultivate innovative ideas and partnerships for the new music industry.

This year, NMS is introducing a new program formatted to enhance industry player’s and creator’s knowledge on new business models for success, as well as provide additional relationship building opportunities.

The 2013 NMS Conference will feature 75-minute Movements (panels), interspersed with 20-minute live music sessions, 45-minute enhanced networking opportunities and 15-minute Intensives.

Known for forging significant new relationships, stimulating ideas, and featuring the best new music, NMS maintains its status as the must-attend industry conference for the ever-evolving music industry…and the music conference where real business is done.

“With the mainstream music industry still hemming and hawing on how to approach digital, the New Music Seminar offers a refreshingly positive approach for artists, labels, and industry folks of all stripes. NMS brings together thought leaders and creative practitioners to inspire, educate, and network proactively on new business models, promotional efforts, and practical tips for music professionals to help take their projects to the next level.”- Mashable

“The New Music Seminar is the place where artists, producers, songwriters, managers, publishers, labels, and agents get together with the businesses that use music to drive attention and engagement,” remarked NMS Founder, Tom Silverman. “Together we must proactively come up with solutions that encourage new business models that will generate new revenue to artists, songwriters and their partners. We predict that the next decade of music will be the greatest the music business has ever seen. Join us as we set the stage for the most exciting music business era since the 80’s.”

SoundExchange, the non-profit performance rights organization that represents the entire recorded music industry in collecting statutory royalties from services that stream sound recordings, is back again this year as a Featured Partner with their Digital Broadcasting Summit.
