Save The Date: The ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO
Succeeding in today’s music business depends on connections - with the right people, information, advice, tools, services and technology that are available to music creators. But discovering what is truly important can be challenging. ASCAP’s annual three-day “I Create Music” EXPO makes it easy and worthwhile.
Launched in 2006, the ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO is the first and only national conference dedicated to songwriting and composing. Selling out in its inaugural year, the EXPO immediately provided a unique opportunity for songwriters, composers, publishers, producers - and those in the industry that support them - to come together in an unprecedented way to share their knowledge and expertise. In its short history, the innovative programming offered to attendees has grown to include celebrity Q&A’s, master classes, songwriting and composing workshops, publisher and business panels, One-on-One sessions, DIY career building workshops, showcases and performances, song feedback panels, state-of-the-art technology demos as well as leading music industry exhibitors.
Some of the biggest names in music, both on the creative and business side, have participated at ASCAP’s EXPOs. The EXPO’s headliner interviews have been with Ann & Nancy Wilson (Heart), Jeff Lynne, Jon Bon Jovi & Richie Sambora, Jackson Browne, Steve Miller, Randy Newman and Tom Petty.
