The 3rd Annual Music Business Empowerment Conference Had a Record Turnout and Presented a Wealth of Knowledge to Participants
The third annual Music Business Empowerment Conference (MBEC) which was held in Atlanta, GA September 15th-17th at the Renaissance Concourse Atlanta Airport Hotel was hugely successful. The theme of this year’s MBEC is "monetizing your music through digital technology". The three-day conference consisted of informative panels with radio program directors from iHeartRadio, Radio One, and Core Communications as well as executives from Capitol Records, Atlantic Records, Interscope and E-One. The MBEC included music showcases and interactive experiences that provided entertainment, education, empowerment, and exposure for all in attendance. The founders of the Music Business Empowerment Conference, Arlinda Garrett, Lester Pace, and Michael Montgomery (Colonel Loud), are industry professionals and respected entrepreneurs. Together they garner more than 60 years of excellence in the fields of music and entertainment.
To jump-start the action-packed weekend there was a red-carpet kick-off hosted by Sista Sypher and Tia Culver with a media “meet and greet” event followed by a poolside fashion show organized by Derrick Chapman and hosted by MBECmodels. The Saturday awards luncheon honored industry stand-outs such as Streetz 94.5's DJ Holiday (DJ of the Year), Larry Kahn, SVP of Interscope(Record Executive of the Year), and Charles Greer received the Lifetime Achievement Award which was presented by Yung Joc. There were also live performances from Silento and several other extremely talented artists.
The MBEC is designed to bridge the gap between industry professionals and entry-level talent, as well as renowned artists and the next generation of rising stars. The MBEC is destined to become the premier music conference in the nation. For more details regarding the Music Business Empowerment Conference please visit www.mbeconference.com.
