Hope y'all plan on spending plenty of time networking over the next few months because there are some really exceptional places to visit. And don't forget to bring plenty of business cards. Here are some cool things to check out for April:

April

1-5 Tin Pan South
Nashville, Tennessee
www.tinpansouth.com

This is always one of Nashville's most popular events. Combine new and veteran writers and performers in an intimate setting where learning is possible and you have a very successful week. Plenty of one-on-one mentoring and workshops and as is always the case with Nashville, tons of emerging talent.
6-10 Billboard Latin Music Conference and Awards
Hollywood, Florida
www.billboardevents.com

There won't be an empty seat in the house for this one! This event combines the conference with the excitement of an awards show. Topics at the conference include: local programming, the distribution connection, ideal sponsorship deals, morning radio, getting noticed in the digital era, and a host of other valuable discussions. If it's a Billboard event, it's worth attending.
10-12 ASCAP: I Create Music Expo
Los Angeles, California
www.ascap.com

Some of the biggest and most important names in the industry are drawn to this expo that is filled with career-building sessions, panels, and writing and producing sessions. Check out the exhibits, displays and demonstrations, and network with industry execs. Definitely one of the best of the year!
27-30 A&R Worldwide's Musexpo
West Hollywood, California

This is an international get-together so the seminars, panelists, and discussions will all take on a wider focus. Simon Renshaw (Strategic Artist Management), Doc McGhee (McGhee Management), Naoki Shimizu (President/Creative Man Productions), and Tim Prescott, CEO of Albert Music will share their thoughts on artist development and A&R.
