Well there's no doubt now that spring is in the air and that means it's time to get up and get out to a local music business conference. Here's what's coming up for March:

March

7-10 CMW Canadian Music Week
Toronto, Canada
www.cmw.net

This is the week that all Canadian music lovers wait for. Four days and nights packed with the very best new, emerging talent, hands-on seminars, and meet-and-greet opportunities. Definitely worthy of your time. Educational and fun.
14-18 SXSW Music Week
Austin, Texas
www.sxsw.com

Traditionally, South by Southwest is one of the biggest music events for emerging artists. Hundreds of new up-and-coming artists plus dozens of conferences and a star-studded lineup of panelists and speakers including Rickie Lee Jones. Oh, did I mention that The Who's Pete Townshend will keynote the convention! This is not to be missed.
20-25 Winter Music Conference
Miami, Florida
www.wintermusicconference.com

Why they call it the winter music conference at the beginning of spring is anyone's guess. All you need to know is that Miami Beach, over the last decade, has emerged as a leader in dance and new music, so this get-together will expose talent as well as a who's who in the industry. Great city and one of their most popular seminars of the year. Be there to hear such topics as reshaping the ways we perceive music, new technologies in digital mixing and recording, digital and online distribution, and radio as a vehicle for developing artists.
27-31 Tin Pan South
Nashville, Tennessee
615-256-3354

If it's happening in Nashville, you gotta be there! This little conference focuses on songwriting and a plethora of other things in the music city. It's a weeklong event so there will be lots of pickin' and strummin' for you to check out.
