Some call it the dog days of summer, but to us it's just another hot day! With Labor Day just around the corner, time's a runnin' out so let's get with some of these educational forums and seminars.


10-13 Atlantis Music Conference
Sheraton Atlanta Hotel
Atlanta, Georgia
Phone: 770-499-8600

This is a great one if you're in beautiful Atlanta during August. There's an interactive music technology forum, NARAS Up Close discussions and other topics including A Band is a Business, A&R: I Don't Want Your Demo, a radio Super Panel, a workshop about how to build a press kit, Salability vs. Credibility, a publisher panel, and the one you should not miss—how managers, agents, publicists, lawyers, and artists keep up with the changing industry.
31-Sept. 5 Philadelphia Independent Music Conference
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The Philadelphia IMC is always a winner because attendees get to see some of the best emerging artists on the East Coast. Almost a full week of music and seminars and Philly steak sandwiches. Most label and publishing reps from New York will be there so networking is at a premium. Go to the Web site for updates.
